In ref to your pm question:
Sam's price match is stated as within 7 days. Delivery of my 65PS64 was delayed to where delivery was 1 day after that and 2 reps and 2 supervisors were combative about the initial SAM'S $50 price drop. They were very discourteous.
I was disgusted enough, I contacted member cancellations planning to cancel and not hoping for anything else at that point... and spoke with my first genuinely interested and nice Sam's rep in mbr cancellations. She fixed it pronto and apologized saying she couldn't believe they were splitting hairs like that, so that may be an option if you're still close to the 7 day deadline regarding the latest price drop. I'm not; it's 1.5 months for me now, so I'm not going after this latest price drop.
For clarity, they say it is 7 days from when the order is placed, not from delivery date. Delivery delays made no difference to the first 4 people I contacted.
In the S60 thread, some had success getting the first S64 price drop matched a day or two outside the 7 days, some didn't. Seemed to come down to luck of the draw on which rep and/or supervisor one reaches with no expectation of uniformity. One guy said he called 3 pairs of reps/supervisors. 3rd pair simply said: No problem whereas the former - no dice.
To the thread: I replaced a defective 55ST60 with the 65PS64 because I didn't need or really want 3D. I'm really liking the S64 a lot. There is a lot of info on the S64's in the S60 thread.
I came from a 36" CRT, so both panels made me see filming motion errors a lot more - I thought mostly due to massively increased size - and I still think that is largely the case. I felt I was just getting used to that over the past 2.5 months (first month with the ST60) thankfully, but I'm now fairly convinced that there is truth to the notion that plasma TV's reduce "plasma trailing" somewhat during break in. I'm nearing 300 hours now and can no longer deny it. It has noticeably improved, IMHO. Just one guy's opinion(s).
Very happy with my S64.
