Looking for a the 60" model. Looks like Amazon has it for $1597.99, was hoping it could be had for less.

I have access to the Panasonic EPP program, but honestly think this set is better bang for the buck.

That's the best price there is right now. I just bought the E550 the other day from Amazon for the $1297. I thought hard about the 6500, but I need the swivel stand for my setup.

Samsung just doesn't seem to be budging on prices, it's got to be hurting their sales. Even dropping prices $100 for a week spurs more followup sales.

This year Samsung doesn't seem to allow dealer sale discounts so far, maybe later in the year.
For now the only deals I see are like at Best Buy offering a free Blu-Ray player or small TV with a larger screen Samsung HDTV.

Samsung plasma sales in the US is likely very low.

Looking at sales ranking on Amazon for television,

Panasonic P60ST50 #34
Samsung PN60E550 #47
Samsung PN51E550 #66
Panasonic P60GT50 #69
Panasonic P50ST50 #306
Panasonic P50UT50 #1,674
Samsung PN60E6500 #2,917
Panasonic P50GT50 #3,579
Samsung PN51E6500 #3,761
Samsung PN51E7000 #4,133
Samsung PN51E8000 #6,089
Samsung PN60E8000 #9,879
Samsung PN60E7000 #10,552
Panasonic P60UT50 #23,685

The 60inch ST50 is killing it and only the E550 is in top 100. Doubt the could be doing any better in b&m

I think if they dropped the price on the E6500 to match (or even under cut) the ST50 could seriously increase their sales.
