Thanks for the update but I guess I'm gonna keep looking as the fine print I just read can be pretty ridiculous if there's any issue.

Their reviews look kind of fishy to me. 99% of them occurred during January from first time reviewers.

Plus their return policy for large TVs is:
The 7 day defective exchange policy does not apply to TVs 32" and larger, any oversized product(s) shipped via our motor freight company (not UPS/FedEx), appliances or receivers. If any of these items are deemed defective, they will be covered exclusively by the manufacturers' warranties, and you must contact the manufacturer for any repairs.

Yes, there's also something about needing to box the TV and it's original box in a 2nd outside box if damage is noticed. Well, back to shopping. I may try to leverage someone else using this price.

Very interesting story. I'll be brief.
Purchased at Amazon. (Very Important: Sold by Pauls. Fulfilled by Amazon.

Paid $4100, understanding (to my best ability) that there was a price match for 30 days. Amazon touts this guarantee.

Received and installed the TV. Beautiful!!! Saw the price for $3700 at USAppliance. I called Amazon and they claimed the price match isn't valid.

Called Pauls, and they claimed it was Amazon's inventory. "Rep said Sorry, but it looks like it's in the Middle." Pauls' support was very indifferent. Amazon was apologetic but stood by their policy.

So Amazon had to take the TV back, instead of a $400 match. Reboxed, Used TV, and they pay the shipper to come back to my house.
Ordered from US Appliance, and actually had 2 TVs sitting here for a day. Amazon picked up their 80" tv.

i have purchased from Amazon for years and have never had an issue until now.

BTW, the TV is awfully nice, and big!!

It doesn't make much sense for Amazon to do what they did, as it'll most likely cost them more than $400 after the return costs and selling it again as "almost new." However, their price matching policy only applies to TVs sold by Amazon and not by third parties, and it's 14 days, not 30.

You might think that but many of these large retailers have merchant agreements on returns. In other words they pay nothing for shipping costs and returns

Amazon gte is only for products sold and fulfilled by amazon.

I think the idea is that it's going to cost "somebody" to now have to sell this set as used or like new or refurbished. One of those times when the supply chain is extremely inefficient.

All that said if big brother is watching I'll give you $3k for that open box set!

Did you call and just make an offer?

Are these people reasonable to work with if there is a problem?

Thanks for any info!

As for Us-Appliance. No issues. Delivery was on time. Guys brought it into the garage. Set is great, and I'm a happy camper. So's my neighbor down the street who is watching the NBA on my set.

Been stalking the sharp 80 threads for some time and i'm confused more now than ever. I keep reading prices will drop....just wait.....well?..... I have seen people posr that Clevland Plasma sells it for $3900....um no......$4200 as of today. ALLTIMETVS had it for $3937 for quite a while....now its $3956! Why does the price keep fluctuating? And the comman direction is upwards not down. Getting really impatient with no price drop. I wont be caught dead paying BB's inflated prices....hell I cant even find anywhere near here that carries the 80.... The idiots at BB didnt even know there was a difference between a quattron 70 and a non quattron...so ridiculous....i would never buy from a retail chain...
.absolute fools!

Did you call Chris and get that price or is that what's listed on the website? If it's on the website, I'd give him a call...you never know.

Ended up pulling the trigger at US Appliance as others are mentioning $3697 shipped. Can't wait! Delivery to the East Coast is 10 days as I sit here tapping my foot.

I thinking that I had to go all the way to the confirm payment page to see the sale price when I bought it a few days ago. I would confirm but I'm now a bit hesitant to enter my info and go that far again and inadvertently end up with another one.

I actually had a similar issue when I brought a tv from Costco way back in 2005. Brought a 50" Panasonic for 2K, the next day it went on sale on their website for $1700. They wouldn't give me the difference, so I had to a return a perfectly good set and reorder from the website. Now they had an open box they had to sell for even less. Even spoke to the manager and he said it didn't make sense.
Anyway, I think $3500 is going to be near the bottom for this set. The 2012 models are coming out and it looks like the old inventory is going fast as the price drops.

I went all the way to the final page, and I can confirm that the 80 is in stock, and the price is indeed $3,697 shipped, no taxes.

(I used a credit card that also requires you to enter stuff to get the charge to go through. So no chance of ending up with one before I reallly want it! Hmmm, now there's an angle I hadn't thought of!!! Reckon the WAR DEPARTMENT would believe...)

I printed out the final page, I may go to Fry's, and try to get a price match on one.

Is US Appliance an AUTHORIZED DEALER for Sharp?

Did anyone check with Sharp, or better yet, post a link to Sharp authorized dealers?

Any idea what the 2012 model base price is? I'm going to assume it is much higher and that the new model won't bottom out anywhere near $3,500 correct?

Whilst muddling around on their website, I discovered:

Earn Referral Cash
With our customer referral program, simply tell friends and family about US Appliance. For every new customer that provides your name and/ or order number when placing their order, we'll send you a check for $50.00! (Applies on new customer orders over $500. Must have different bill to and ship to addresses.)

Yeah, it's only 50 bucks, but if we hadn't been referred from someone here, we would not have bought at US Appliance!

US Appliance is owned by ABC Warehouse. ABC is authorized and on the Sharp Website. I spoke to US-A about this and they told me they are authorized due to their relationship with ABC. I suspect it all goes back through ABC Warehouse.

I believe I saw a list price of $6,400 - that is the new 3D, 240Hz set.

Actually Anthony, I think it was another one of your posts that I saw with the $6,400 list price...but apparently it was $6,499...sorry about that.

Even if you get the price match from Frys you are still going to have to pay tax. Buying from US Appliance is the better deal. No tax and free shipping.

I noticed that the FREE SHIPPING date keeps adjusting to stay valid. At least for the past 2 weeks that was the case.
