I ordered a PN59D6500 last week through Vann's for $1399 shipped with no tax. I have no complaints about the cost.
Their website lists it for a few hundred more as a bundle, if you click on the "Request current price without package" on the right side of the product web page, they will send you a clicky link to the reduced price.
So far I love the picture quality. My only slight complaint is that due to its size, it is much easier to notice the lower quality picture when upconverting regular DVDs to 1080p. I upgraded from a Panny P50G10.
