For what it's worth, I just came back from Best Buy where I had negotiated the Magnolia sales manager down to $2,000+tax (5 percent in VA) for the 64D7000 with their 3d glasses and Blu ray player package included. This was after I quoted Amazon's price of $2,140 (no package). I am guessing they are either getting more aggressive on moving the old models out, or he just quoted me next week's sale price. He did check the computer, so I think the latter is probably the case.
I also checked on their current best price for the Panny 65VT30 while I had his ear since it is the other panel on my radar and he came back with $2,850+tax and delivered.
