The new Sony 700P is $315 + shipping at One Call. Pretty impressive specs, 3:2 pulldown, 12bit 54mhz processing. Definitely looks like a better player than the 434 for not a lot more money.

The TW56X81 is the 2000 model, 56H80 is the 2001 model. I've had a 56X81 for about 16 months and have been very happy with it. Go with the 56H80 if you like it, should be a great set.
