I know we can't post prices, but just wanted to give folks who have a hhgregg in their area a heads-up: I stopped by my local one (Kennesaw, GA area) again today to drool at it and mull it over again and again, when I found out they had just today slashed another $400 off their already-competitive price! Sure they didn't have it in stock, but I simply could not pass up the deal. Let's just that the TV, with 3-years extended warranty, was still competitive when compared to other retailers. It was lower than any online retailed I've seen.
If you can, give it a go!
p.s.: thanks to all on this forum who've helped me through this decision in more way than one. Now it's just a waiting and prepping-the-house game ...
