For what's it's worth to you, the purchase price I paid for the glorious 64PNF8500 you're helping me 'calibrate' was exactly the price advertised on ECTV's website.
Thanks for your good work and I look forward to reading your future posts.
I guess I'm more annoyed at them because I know for every avs member that gets a good price, there's 10 other's who paid too much.
there's been a lot of rumours about the f8500 being on sale right now for 2199, and the sales staff telling ppl to wait because it's going to be 1999 soon. this is for the 64, so it seems that right now, there's a lot of opportunities to buy from other sellers, depending on your location of course.
ultimately, if you go in with a good amount of knowledge, you can come out just fine. it just bothers me that they straight up lie to try to get more money out of the less knowledgeable customers.
I'm sorry if I went too far, I am definitely biased against any company that behaves the way these 'grey market' sellers do. even if they do have the best prices
