Ya, i'm going to wait until after CES to make my decision because the 2012 Panasonics are getting some good hype right now. They're using a new "first" technology in plasmas next year to help them compete on the sales floor w/ lcds. New filters, brightness, and other things are expected. I think it will be worth the wait to find out if the 2012s will live up to the hype.
Didn't know they price matched Amazon. I've never seen it under $3499.99 at BB. Too bad I'm waiting for the 2012 model.
It's heavily dependent on store and manager. Took me 3 tries to find one that would PM Amazon below their cost. Earliest 2012 will be available (based upon last 2 years) is likely mid-April. I couldn't wait that long even though the new changes are supposed to be $$$.
Yup as an existing amazon prime customer $2800 delivered is very tough to pass up. Still on the fence though. Anyone know dealer cost? How much lower can these credibly be sold for, especially once the 2012 models are shown at CES?
Apparently US appliance has it for $2600 white glove (!) which apparently amazon will match if you call. You have to go all the way through check out on US appliance to see the price. It shows up right before the last Click to purchase.
