Costco doesn't have a television return policy where you can trade them in anymore every six months.
THE RETURN POLICY FOR TELEVISIONS, PROJECTORS, COMPUTERS, CAMERAS, CAMCORDERS, IPODS / MP3S, AND CELLULAR PHONES IS 90 DAYS FROM DATE OF PURCHASE.
I for one like this, it means they don't have to raise their prices for the rest of us to compensate for those people that would only use a television six months and then trade it in the the new, bigger, cheaper model. Which is what happens with all electronics. They are like the glass beads that bought Manhatten.
I bought my 42" VISO LCD there, and it's sharp as a tack.
My mother got the Magnavox 47" but it didn't seem as sharp.
It could be that mine is hooked up with componet cables and hers uses the HDMI cable, or that her end of town doesn't have as good a signal as where I live. I would need to set them up side by side, the same way to know for sure.
