this whole pulling from the shelves because of a possible upcoming coupon seems a little fishy. wouldn't they rather just sell them at the current price to people that don't know about the coupon? if not, why not just put it on sale now?
either there's some sort of problem or they weren't really supposed to go on sale yet, for whatever reason. or costco's insane (not an impossibility at all given their return policy).
btw, i must say i love seeing the pictures because it gives me a better idea of what the set looks like, but i just don't see them as being very valuable for evaluating picture quality. Exposure settings, white balance, ambient light, etc. all affect the outcome of the picture, not to mention the display you're using to view the picture. Now, if we had a single picture of two different TV models for side by side comparison, that would be quite a bit more useful.
