I'm curious is there a better deal than the Sceptre x37sv Naga LCD TV/monitor available? It has separate ATSC/QAM and NTSC tuners plus works very well as a 1080p computer monitor. Costs are around $1500 via internet sources including Costco. The closest to it has been the Westinghouse 37" LCD but it did not have an ATSC/QAM HDTV tuner the last time I checked.

It's gonna be hard to beat $1500 on one of these. I have access to several of these and my cost on all of them are over $1500. This seems to be a really good deal.

Panasonic has a 37" Plasma that can be had for about $1160 but it only has an NTSC tuner and it's EDTV.

I don't know if the two are comparable but the Westinghouse LVM 42W2 had a great review in the May 'Home Theater'.

Do all the scepter display devices have that blue light up logo on the front? If so thats the only thing that would keep me away from them. I know their computer LCD displays have them and it looks annoying.

Nope. On the 37" at least there is only a single small led -- red when off, yellow when on. Hardly noticable :)
