|DonutHands||So the trumotion thing is always turned on on this model? I absolutely hate that effect.|

I actually was not counting on them giving me the rewards. Their own terms state that when you return, rewards are deducted from the rewards account. Which is exactly what I was counting on, the rewards generated by the last TV purchase would cover the negative rewards balance generated by the 1st TV return. But, they messed up.

|thejq||I saw the same price at my local Costco (Carmel Mountain Ranch, San Diego), but they only have the display model left. So I got Frys to price match it and bought one this morning.|

I'm not in the market for a tv. I'm always in the market for making a profit though. Awesome job on the rewards. I'll have to keep my eyes open for future deals like that.

You've been around longer than I, you probably already know that you can buy 1, get rewards, apply rewards to 2nd one, get rewards. Return 1st, keep 2nd.
I ended up buying 3 in quick successions, as rewards posted to my account. I ended up not picking up the first one, and picked up the last 2. Sold 1 locally and made some money on it. Cancelled the 1st one after a couple of weeks. I was actually hoping Sears would self cancel for not picking it up, but I had to call and IM to get it finally cancelled.
Lots of people were able to replicate buying 1, getting rewards, applying rewards to next. Cancelling or returning the 1st.
My case is unique though. I sold one of the TV's for profit, and Sears never took the rewards back when I cancelled the first one.
The TV ended up costing me a little over $100, between rewards, cashback, card discount, and local sale.

$510 if you have a sears credit card and can convert $250 sywr into cash. I for one could use the rewards so it's a good deal for me.
Wonder if sears will pm costco and be give rewards on top of that?

Don't take me wrong, it is a GREAT TV, but people should know what they are getting.
I am using with strictly with VGA feed and have not had issues with TruMotion (80's soap opera look), which appears to be disabled in VGA mode.
There is no toggle to enable or disable TruMotion like in higher end LG models, even with the firmware update.
Built in DLNA works with Windows 7 DLNA server, and SiliconDust HomeRun Prime (Beta Firmware) DLNA cable TV access (i.e. no cable box is needed to access CableTV) as long as it is not labeled as "copy once" or "copy never"
Start up time is significantly shorter than with the 8 year old 42" Dynex (rebadged LG) we were using before.
Power consumption is about half of the 8 year old 42" Dynex (rebadged LG) that it replaced.
You will need 90° connectors since the HDMI and VGA plugs are on the back, straight out the back, not to the sides (except for HDMI 3), if you wall mount it with a slim mount.
Edit: 2D to 3D conversion is OK, but I have nothing to compare to. We are using it strictly as 2D TV.

The argument over whether active or passive 3D is better is never-ending. Each has fans, but I find that the convenience of the passive of 3D is generally preferable. The only downside of passive that I have found is that the vertical viewing angle is poor. You have to be level with the TV. If your eye level is below or above the TV, it ghosts and crosstalks horribly. If you are dead on, the crosstalk and ghosting is pretty much eliminated, and in fact the lack of crosstalk is one of the big selling points of passive over active. FYI - Unlike active 3d, passive 3d does not require 120 hz to operate as the tech is completely different. Also, you can just use glasses from the movie theater for it, making it cheap and easy to have large groups of people over for 3D movies.

It was $510 last week of January at Sears.
Anyone interested should read the thread linked for details about the TV.
It is a solid TV for $510, but for $700 you should know what you are getting.
