Wel, I looked at the last 141 in the Los Angeles Best Buys, and it was disappointing. I ran the burn-in slides, and there was a significant occurance of dark spotting in the lower right corner and the screen was highly marred and streaked. I was able to buff out a little bit of the screen marring with some saliva and a microfibre, but they had clearly been spraying the Monster Power cleaner directly on a hot screen for far too long. It's been there since July, as well.
Of course I'm game for a bargain, so I tried to get their lowest price. They claim they paid $3400 for it and that would be the lowest they could go. I missed a chance to negotiate with the manager there on Sunday for a extended warranty/calibration package (which I would have returned) in order to lower the price more. The Home Theater manager came in today and squashed any sale of the monitor for less than $3400. And to be honest, the BI/IR looked pretty significant and could be seen on any non-white or light gray screen. Who knows if it would have ever come out. For ~$3K I would have taken it home to find out, but alas, it was not meant to be.
On to other options, I suppose. Congrats to those who got the display they always wanted.
