They are legit, been around for at least a decade.
dead I'm curious where you found this deal. The amazon affiliate tag on that link is "best-plasma-tvs-20" which I am having difficulty finding anywhere else with google.
For future reference, typing in all caps has the exact opposite effect of what you intend. It HURTS normal people to read more than a few words in all caps. Most people will skip something like that. I did.
Here is the direct link without all the tracking of your web-browsing that the first link has: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BCGRQ5S/
Here's a link without all that affiliate and tracking junk: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008M4MB8K/
For all the people in this thread interested in pricing pressure, you might find this article interesting. In short, global tv sales have been dropping for a couple of a years now and 2014 is shaping up to be the biggest drop in sales ever -- 11% less than 2013. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/03/24/tv_sales_dropping/
Unfortunately, the picture quality on these is pretty poor. It is unlikely we'll ever see anything better though, given the state of the source material.
They may be making sales to business customers who, for a variety possible reasons, absolutely must replace a broken unit with a new identical unit. Sometimes the cost to spec-out a replacement is significantly greater than just buying an over-priced, obsolete unit that is known to be fit for purpose instead.
I don't know if this applies to this specific company's closeout sale, but the typical practice over the last decade has been when that a chain goes out of business, they bring in a 'closeout sale specialist' company to staff the stores and set pricing. Invariably their pricing tactics are exactly what has been described in this thread. The stuff that does not sell at the ridiculous prices ends up being shipped out somewhere else, maybe even to another closeout at some...
Welcome to the eternal september.
