You're in the bay area right? Down here in socal the situation is exactly the same. The stores I visit near work have a box sitting on the floor next to he TV. Those boxes have not moved since launch. One AVS member local to me bought one and then returned it to wait for the 4K 65" model. I also see no drop in their online store-pickup inventory for my area.

I think we've pretty much established that the MicroCenter and Fry's closeout prices of $2K on the EA9800 are the only way to move these TVs. We've already seen a $500 drop and I would not be shocked if they are at $2K by Black Friday.

Good news for potential shoppers. I also think they will introduce an equivalent to the flat European 55EA870v for an even lower price than the curved. It's a much simpler design that should be cheaper to produce without the stupid gallery frame.

$8.5K+ for the 65" is complete insanity and is basically just a paper launch. It probably means we won't see any reviews for many months. The first EA9800 owners here on AVS didn't show up until 6 months later when it hit ~$5K from the original $15K
