Got a coupon for $500 off ($999.99 after coupon) a Sceptre 37" LCD HDTV from Costco. The only one listed on their website is this model (Costco Item # 896288 at $1499.99):

http://www.sceptre.com/Products/LCD/Specifications/spec_X37SV-Naga.htm

However, its 37" widescreen 1080p LCD with 1920x1080 resolution. The coupon says 1366x768 resolution w/ HDMI. The coupon even says a different item number (195219).

Any thoughts if this is the same TV, or is there a cheaper model that is for sale?

Thanks,
-John

I almost bit on the 37" 1080P model in April for $1499, if it is the same model for $999, I would not hesitate one moment to pick it up.

Where do you get this coupon? I'm really interested in this tv/monitor, if I could save that much money I could get it much sooner.

It came in the COSTCO Member Passport to Savigs Summer 2006 booklet. Gets mailed to customers.

Looks like I will have to pick one up if it really is that model. :)

They were passing these out at the door at our Costco in Albuquerque; this was the first time I didn't get one in the mail.

Well, if thats the case, its clearly false advertising as it's not $500 off.
If so, I will remove Costco from my list of stores I shop at.

I picked up my Passport today at Costco and it is $999 for the 37" with 1366x768 resolution. Here's the Costco link for this set, they say the current $1299 price includes $200 off, so the coupon is not false, it is $500 off, just not the 1080p version.

That's not the same one. It's a Viewsonic, not Sceptre brand.
