I went to BB today in Towson, MD, wanting to buy the 42" 60u and the guy had it in the warehouse. He said MAYBE they could do 2499. When he went to speak with the manager, he came back and just said, "Can't do it." Don't know if that means 2,499, but I was tired of dealing with the thing. You'd think they'd know what they were doing on these models, and that they'd want my business. (No mention of the Best Buy credit card thing, either.) I guess I'll order from Panasonic and wait for the thing to arrive. Dealing in the retail arena is just plain aggravating sometimes.
