That is a pretty sweet deal, but I'm going to wait on the 50".

OMG! Glad I waited. This is the same price as a Samsung or Panasonic 720p set.

This is a great sign for me, hopefully. I'm hoping it's not long before I can get the 50" for around $550. Just wondering if I should go for the S64, or if the AR filter will actually make the display seem too dark. Will have to wait and see on that one!

Anyone know if ABT will do a price adjustment? I paid $659.99 for my 42S60 just a few weeks ago.

Indecision may or may not be my problem.

I would speak with them if you haven't already. Plead your case and if they won't budge, ask for some kind of credit or discount. You gotta ask.

I haven't called yet but they no longer have the 42S60 on their website. Probably not a good sign.

Indecision may or may not be my problem.

Wonder why 55 inch plasma is not a widely available choice in the big box stores, unlike LED which has many brands in that size. Can't find a 55" S60 or ST60 at BB or HHG anywhere. Although a PC Richard store in Jersey had the 55S60 for $694 last week. Wish I could have jumped on that. But apparently 55 inch is a popular size for LED/LCD, but not plasma.

It could be a place like PC Richards put in a big order for the 55". I think you should see if you can still get that price. The last time I was there I was just looking at the 55 on the wall, and the salesman came up to me and gave me a price of $750. This was in another store apart from the tent sale.

Unfortunately, I am in SC and there is no PC Richards nearby. But may checkout Brandsmart and Fry's next time I drive down to Ga which is about 2 hours away. But I still question why 55 inch is a popular size for LED but not plasma.

In the Picture menu, are the Pro Settings available on the S60 or blocked out? Do you have to step up to the ST60 to access these custom controls?

Anyone have any idea if Sears may do the 42" S60 for $399 deal again? This would be a great deal for a bedroom tv.

Quick heads up. Sears is running a 100,000 "Shop Your Way" promotion on any TV purchased over $599. So, I did the following deal:

- 50" S60 for $699.99
- Less: Ebates click through for 6.0% cash back ($42)
- Less: Shop Your Way promotion points; 100,000 points is equal to $100 off future purchase ($100)

Total: $558 plus Sales Tax (8.25% here in Texas). Free delivery as well.

To be fair, it's not exactly $100 off - it's $100 towards a future purchase. Still, great to know. I'm holding out for a $50 S64 at CostCo for the anti glare, but hopefully someone finds use for this.

No kidding. Kicking myself for missing it. Thinking about going ahead and paying $499 for it.

Was at my local Costco today and saw that the price for the S64 50" has dropped from $629.99 to $599.99. I had bought my set- which I'm really liking BTW- just under a month ago and had no problem at all getting a price adjustment. Costco really is great to deal with.

For anyone looking for a TV this size, it is hard to imagine a better deal. The bang for the buck is unmatched.

The 50S60 is still available at Best Buy for $699. But the 50S64 is $100 cheaper at Costco for $599, and is arguably a better TV with the added anti-glare filter. Should have better blacks and less reflections. But not all Costcos have the S64 available.

S60 and S64 should effectively have the same black levels - they share the same panel. Don't confuse the infinite black panel with the AR filter/louver. Reflectivity I agree with though, notably from overheard light sources.

Amazon has the 65" for $1288 and it looks to be in stock. The 60" is $999, but no delivery until mid-October.

Hi, Ian, haven't seen nor heard from you in a while!

Here's a post in the Costco S64 thread that I posted Tuesday: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1475776/panasonic-s64-at-costco/330#post_23997452

Couldn't pass the deal up just like I couldn't pass up the Costco 42GT25 years ago!

I'm "retared" now drawing SOSO Security! rolleyes.gif

Still helping people I see! Hope all goes well with you!!

I wanted to let everyone know I picked up a 65" S60 at Costco for $900 (marked down from $1400). Yes, it is an S60 NOT an S64. Very happy about the purchased as I had previously jumped on the 50" S60 at Sears for $600 which will either be returned or sold to someone.

Since people will be asking, it was the Costco at Clyborn and Damen in Chicago. It was the last in box unit with the display unit being the other.
