If anyone is still interested in this TV, Bestbuy has it for $1498 and offer 36 month deferred interested finance. Be aware though that the in store price showed $1899. I showed the rep the bestbuy.com online price and they matched it without hesitation. I just bought it this evening and awaiting for delivery this Wednesday. Only reason I don't have it now is because they will haul away my old Samsung DLP TV which is 8 years old (What a relief!) Was going back and forth between this and the Samsung UN55ES8000 and for that price, I went for it. This will be my first LG purchase. If it doesn't work for my video gaming needs, can always do the 'perfect match' thing and go for the other one, even though it's $1,000 more.
