OK... here is the skinny. Last night I stopped over to my favorite TV store to get the latest info on the Laser. I asked if they ordered their floor model yet.... he said, "Yes about a month ago, but he didn't know when they would arrive". And in the same breath, he says.... "but you can ask my sales rep".... I turn arround and in walks the midwest regional sales rep... huffing and puffing with a bunch of equipment. I then ask him when can we expect to see the new LaserVue in showrooms....etc. and he smiles and says "Soon". He then continues to say he just got off the phone (with people in the know) and they are scheduled to leave the factory tomorrow, Friday (TODAY) at the earliest and/or Monday at the latest.
He asked if I had a few minutes to watch a 3D demo .... which was fantastic by the way. I couldn't stay long because I had to pickup my daughter at the airport, but I did find out that the light leakage thing is fixed (redesigned). That's why the depth/shape of the TV has changed from the original model. More Colors (all the colors just poop) and even better picture...and the ISFccc capability. However, he said that the units coming out of the factory should be spot on, but if you are a purist, then the ability to fine tune is made available. So, for those (retailers selling the LaserVue) fortunate enough to be close to the factory, they should be getting a 75" floor model any day now!!!! Also, CLOSEOUT on the 65" is $3499. Once the 75" is in stores the 65" will be dropped (no longer made). Oh and the new 82" Diamond series (non-Laser) will be loaded to the max... WiFi, Soundbar, ethernet, 3D etc.... and should be out July/early August.
I've got to get to work now..... and to all you naysayers.... CHILL!!!!
Have a wonderful Nuclear Day!! :-)
