I really don't think its worth that, take a look at some of the deals going on black friday. I'd say a good even 500 MAYBE.

Maybe true, but that's what it's gone for recently on eBay...

Haha. Yeah, I am going to see what I can do. If I do get $900 for it, I'm just going to go to best buy and get the $999 westinghouse 42 in plasma TV

Last question, What's better, the westinghouse 42 in or the one from walmart, there's no brand name or anything, but its advertised as 42" Plasma TV with built in HD Tuner

Pretty sure Westinghouse doesn't make a 42'' plasma, I think you're talking about the Westinghouse 42'' LCD. It's a really nice monitor; last I've heard they fixed all the lock-up issues with the newest firmware.

I have the Westhinghouse 37'' (LVM-37W3), and I'm in love with it as a computer monitor. The pixel pitch is obviously superior to the 42'', and most people I've talked to like the 37'' as a computer monitor much more than the 42'' for it's crispness, pixel pitch, response time, etc., but if you're getting it primarily for a HDTV, the 42'' would probably be better. Keep in mind, even in HD, the Westy's aren't *incredible,* but they're decent. Although, I guess I've been spoiled by my uber nice Samsung LCD panels that are the best LCD's I've seen (4000:1 contrast, etc.), but YMMV. If you aren't that picky for HD, the Westy's are fine. You obviously need a digital box connected via component though; any LCD TV picture via analog is like walking in on your parents, just awful and eye-numbing. That's why the "built-in analog tuners" are totally pointless on LCD's, no one even uses them. You need to go component, DVI, or HDMI. NEVER ANALOG.

Re: the Walmart tv vs. the 42'' Westy; I'd go with the 42'' Westy. It's going to have a killer price on Black Friday, and it's a known monitor that serves it purpose well.

The 42" Westy is a monitor only, you'll need some kind of tuner hooked up, and its a LCD 720p display that can be used as a computer monitor.

for 900 DEFINITELY get rid of it. I love selling things to people who have no idea about electronics/computers :). Also, it's definitely a great idea to pick up a good deal on a TV tomorrow. I would check out slickdeals.net for the latest and browse the comments to see others opinions.
