I got my new PN59D8000 last week. I spent a couple days mounting it, etc. But now I have everything working and it looks great! Part of why it took so long was because I had another set there previously. I had to take it down, run new wires over to the side armoire, rewire all the components in the armoire, install a new center speaker, reprogram all my components (and the remote), etc.
It's mounted above the fireplace, as you can see. I used an omnimount ultra low profile mount LP120F
which has a .55" clearance. So my total from wall to front of the set is a mere 2". My previous set, a Pioneer 910 Elite came out from the wall a total of 8 inches (I was using omnimount U3 tilt mount).
Thanks to Cleveland Plasma for the set. Very good customer service, although I think Chris got a little annoyed with me when I couldn't justify buying the mount for him. In any case, he walked me through the purchase as well as the delivery.
Also thanks to Blue Jeans Cable who always gets me the cables I need very quickly.
