Now for the fun part! After watching the "order status" thing all day it went from "processing in our warehouse" to "All Backordered - These items are currently on backorder, and will ship as soon as we receive stock on them. ( We are currently doing a physical inventory. Your order may temporarily show on backorder. Please allow 48 hours for your status to update. )"
Big sigh. I missed that friday deal and was stoked when they re-did it, but I guess I have to be patient a little longer. I also noticed that the other tv I was watching (Hannspree 120hz 42" LCD) went back on sale at newegg last night. Id rather have the samsung 50" but that is my backup plan.
EDIT: Just got off the phone with TD. They have no idea about when they will get more in. They are willing to do the same deal on the 430 but since that is a cheaper model I am just going to wait.
SECOND EDIT: Talked to Samsung USA; their 2011 models wont be out until March, so there is extremely little likelihood that the existing ones have been discontinued. I'll continue to wait before settling for a 430.
