Watch USA Pumps on eBay - they've got some inlines that are 1/2" inlet and outlet for $110 shipped. But $5 more and in stock is a good deal.

Ordered my inline's from USA Pumps last week and showed up today.

Not quite the same. The ebay pump has a 3/8" inlet with 1/2" outlet. The pumpsforless pump has 1/2" inlet and outlet.
the ebay pump has 3/8" internal pipe thread, and 3/4" external pipe thread inlet. the inlet is actually larger than a 1/2" in-out pump would have.

Well I take that back - although they did promptly ship ONE of the two pumps I've ordered and paid for, the other failed to be in the box. Of course they're on east coast time and 4PM PST means they're gone for the weekend so I'm stuck frustrated and annoyed waiting to get a hold of someone to figure out what they're going to do to resolve this.

Really? I'm looking at that right now, and it's saying 3/8" in and 1/2" out. Is that the same one you ordered?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220520955010

Inlet is 3/4" MPT and outlet is 1/2" MPT. The inlet just so happens to be threaded internal threads and external threads. This gives 3/8" pipe thread inside the inlet and 3/4" pipe thread outside the inlet. You also have to remember that pipe is measured in inside diameter, so a 3/8" ID pipe would thread into the inlet, so the threads are larger than 3/8". 3/8 pipe has an OD of around .68", so the opening in the inlet of this pump will be closer to 5/8" than 3/8".

Take it one more step here, with using the inlets MPT with a coupling leaves that 3/8" FPT useless, a collector of particles in the threads plus not a smooth surface flowing over the threads. Why no drill out that 3/8" FPT until you reach the root of the threads for a smoother and larger inlet? Structurally nothings lost plus you'll gain in diameter as well better primes. I had a replacement pump head sent that had this 3/8" inlet after I dropped my paddle across the old pump shearing off the inlet, (idiot was me). I was in a hurry not wanting to screw with returning the sent replacement head so drilled it out without any pumping problems. It actually improved priming the pump.
I did use a 30 degree reamer inside the inlet making a smoother transition from the coupling to the pumps inlet ID.

Great deal there, and exactly the model I want - alas the listing's ended. Hopefully they'll have more tho, I'll have to keep my eyes peeled.
