This deal has ended.
Update: this is now $1254. Buy.com has a new Philips 42" HD Plasma for $1145 plus free shipping, a drop of over $35 from a mention earlier this week. A similar refurbished model is available direct from Philips for $979. This has 1024 x 768 resolution, HDMI input and a built-in HD tuner. There is no sales tax either (except CA, MA, MD, TN) so this is effectively $100 less than the same price at BestBuy or CircuitCity.
