I am looking at purchasing a 36" WEGA in the next few weeks, but wanted some advice on the different models and the pro/cons of each.

I was looking at purchasing my set online (looking at prices from CNet), but I am somewhat hesitant since I have not heard of any of the lowest priced retailers. Has anyone had experience with these companies? Were they reliable? How were the shipping costs?

Thanks you advance for any advice/opinions!!

I've been researching the Wega's recently. I would suggest buying it locally. There have been several reported problems with the Wega's that may cause you to have to exchange it. In my opinion, it would be worth a couple of hundred bucks to be able to easily exchange or return vs. shipping back.

If you aren't looking at the XBR models, you try price matching at Sears.

Thanks! I did notice that Sears does not have the XBRs...

Is the XBR that much better?

It is if you don't like scan lines.

I've read the XBR is quite a bit better. However, if you have a crappy signal coming in, a crappy picture will come out.
