Good point. I'm going to box it up and return it. This particular retailer does not offer refunds on TV's, so I will be re-selecting, but no more floor models, I've learned my lesson. I think I'm just going to forget plasma all together, great picture but too high maintenance.

Got myself a 50ST60 open box at best buy for 629. They said it had been shipped there from their service center. It looks great and according to the status4 has 3600 hours. I applied dnice settings as i figure the tv is broken in fully. No idea if it was a store demo or a house tv that someone kept on 10 hours a day for their kids. NO IR or logos i can see. Coming from a GT25 with the black level issues its really nice.

Anything I need to do? Worth a professional calibration? No idea what kinda of break in was done on this tv.

I thought I had found a NEW 50ST60 that I had been searching for from a marketplace seller on Sears. Unfortunately, they ended up shipping me a 50S64 (Costco model) which is not what I want - especially since I payed a marked up price for the ST60 in order to obtain it new. I will only buy new because I have to have a sales receipt to purchase an extended warranty.

If anyone has anymore leads on who might be selling a new one (regardless of price), let me know.

I'd offer the store somewhere between $900-$1000. That's it. Let us know how it works out.
I think the definition of "used' and floor model from an authorized dealer is different

I am not sure I have seen a "used" anything that had the warranty start the day that you purchased it

What you might say is that is to much to pay for a display..based on what new in box units were going for

I paid significantly less for a floor model 60" about 3 months ago...$424.00 from an authorized dealer

99% of the reason i bought it was that is was so discounted
