. I am thinking that was a pricing error and every time MC sold a unit they lost money..........
Pricing error that lasted the better part of a week? Despite multiple people asking store reps why the price was this low and nobody bothering to check if it was an error?
I'm not doubting that your dealer price is higher. But for larger chains like BB, Fry's, or MC, they might have gotten a better deal from LG.

There were also some white non-uniformity issues, but they weren’t as serious as in the grays and no worse than what you’ll see in many otherwise good LCD sets."
Now with all the bickering that goes on about uniformity issues on LEDs, Tom Norton says the LG OLED uniformity issues are 'no worse than what you'll see in many otherwise good LCD sets'. HUH? Say what?
This is the first I've heard of this and would be curious to see if owners agree with this. Are you guys experiencing this? Is this another case of the 'panel lottery'? I knew about the full-screen gray streaking, that doesn't concern me that much.
I should add that Tom Norton is probably my favorite reviewer of displays, so I sit up and take notice when he says something like this.
You really missed a lot. I would say look through the image gallery for this thread but that feature appears to have vanished. There were many pictures posted by owners of streaks and other dark patches when displaying near-black gray. There are also many images of the issue in various reviews like these:

Is 55" too small for 11.5ft viewing distance or but another way, is 65" too big? I'm ready to buy another OLED.
So your store is still selling for $2k? Looks like a few others are too because I noticed stock numbers declining or selling out within the past 24 hours. Maybe it's not too late for more folks to get in on the deal.
