Here's another data point

The place my experience was coming from was a San Diego Costco (as I frequently comment on) and its natural for me to ask where any of these places he's talking about today exist without some vague reference to historical posts to sales last year at initial production releases. Just providing any real information that supports the statement spoken as fact about it being out of stock at all these places was a natural request to such a skewed response with his big claims to my singular observation. Could my Costco be selling 100 million of them between my visits? Sure, possible, but not the impression I'm getting. If I said my Costco couldn't keep them on the shelves, I'd be able to point to it being out of stock or some very recent posts saying as much as actual evidence before just pulling stuff out of my ass as well.
In my local costco north of Pittsburgh today, I saw 1 on display and two in stock. The demo pictures grabbed my attention, and I came here to find out if there's enough content out there to justify moving up from a 2 year old 60" panny plasma. They didn't have it hooked up to any other signal, I'd like to see what it does with 1080p / 720p content. If they're sold out by the time I get my research done, nice to know I can pick one up in SD. Maybe they don't sell well there cause you can just look out your windows and see beautiful scenes
They also had the Samsung UN65HU7200 for almost a couple of hundred more, but not sure if the curved screen is for me (can't watch 3D because of motion sickness)
