Sorry if you guys get this once a day, but I searched and wasnt really happy with the answers I found and wanted a more current update. I really want to purchase a plasma TV, but 3k is as much as I can spend. I know about the Gateway model for 2999 and I also noticed that buy.com has a Cornea model for 2999 with rebate. Why would I regret buying these cheap models? I will use the plasma for xbox and DVD. Thanks very much for the help.
