Just wondering if anyone has come across any good deals on the UT50 (looking at 50" myself) up here in Canada? I'm jealous of the $799 deals on the set and $899 with an Xbox360 or Blu-ray player. Right now the TV alone is $999 here (no bundle promos), apparently will go on sale for $899 occasionally, and there has been only one $799 sale with very limited quantities.
I've thought about driving down to the states to get one, but then I'd have to pay 6.5% WA sales tax (BC residents not exempt) + duty of 12% HST at the border and possibly environmental fees. Not to mention not having a valid warranty in Canada and returns/exchanges being a massive pain in the ass.
The dollar is within 1.5% of par and yet consumer electronics are still off by this much, frustrating.
Thanks for any tips guys.
