I know there's still not much to be had at retail on these with UPP pricing, but I was scouring for some kind of discount and stumbled across Amazon's Used deals for the PN60E7000 series specifically has some rather interesting pricing. $1211 for an "acceptable" condition set, and up to $1295 for "Like New". This is significantly lower than even their other Used model pricing for some of the lesser sets, like the 6500 and E550. With that being a $700+ discount off UPP, I've decided to take a risk and go for it. Here's to hoping it wasn't returned for buzzing, pixels, or anything else obnoxious. I noticed the Sammy warranty basically is invalid on a used unit purchase through Amazon, but they offer their 30 day guarantee, and you can add 12 additional months of Square Trade warranty for $45. I added this to the purchase for extra peace of mind.
I will update after I receive and have a time to watch it.
