I've been after one of the 50 or 55" (most likely the 50") for a few weeks now. I had a price of 1199 on a receipt from the guy at BB, but ofcourse they won't honor that and the price is sitting at like 1400.
Regarding the rarity of the 50 and 55": When I asked if they were good on stock he glanced at the screen and responded "oh yeah...we're just fine on stock". Said they had plenty.
I wouldnt normally buy from BB as they annoy me but I've got somewhere around 400 bucks in gift cards lol.
