As for the C540, Sears and London Drugs sell both of these models...
As for the differences, that is a tough question, they are very similar, don't believe what is written currently on the Samsung USA site about these models, they are in the process of updating the information, there is nothing on the Canadian site.
The 540 series might have one less HDMI port but I have to take a peak at one to be sure, they don't mention AllShare or DLNA for this model but I looked in the menu and it is there. They also don't call the PDP an E3 panel but the do call it an E panel, IMHO just marketing games. Physically if you look at the 2 models they are impossible to tell them apart.
I opted for the PN58C550 from Costco as it was the same price as the C540 at Sears on sale, reasoning was a better return policy at Costco and an included 2 year warranty, that and a measure of "just in case" there is something the C550 has the C540 does not.
