For a fairer comparison, compare the price of the Panasonic 9UK and the Pioneer 5070 at TV Authority. Even with two HDMI blades added in to the Panasonic, there is a substantial price difference.
If anyone wants to PM me a comparable price on the Pioneer from an authorized dealer, I'd definitely consider it over the Panasonic for aesthetics.
So far, I just haven't seen that.
When shopping for best pricing for two different models, why only use ONE store for the comparison? You need to compare the best price for each model across multiple authorized dealers (even if just the 3-4 AVS sponsors).
I will PM you.
