x2. I visited Best Buy/Magnolia last night to view it for the final time to make sure. I even gave them a chance for best offer and all they could do was $4500 pre-tax.(unQuote)
I've owned several plasmas since 2004 and used them religiously. This is the first time I've been convinced to switch technology for a large flat panel display. So much so that I cancelled a Panasonic 65GT30 enroute from Amazon; it seems so small against an 80in and 3D is not a concern. Crazy that I spent $5K back in 2004 for a 50" 720P Pioneer plasma. We AVSers were all talking about how it was so affordable to go with an industrial plasma versions (vs. consumer) back then. Nice, but expensive memories.

Why wait? I simply called US Appliance and placed my order. If you don't mind them charging you prior to shipping, then I don't see a problem. I'm not taking any chances on any potential price increase or availability.
The salesman noted that they have 60 on order and expect to receive at least 75% of them in ~3 weeks. He even told me my place in the backorder wait list; there are five people ahead of me and my order will be in the first batch. Three weeks (or four with shipping time) is ideal timing since I'm renovating the room. I used my AMEX card and have crazy customer protection if anything goes awry. AMEX also gives me one additional year of warranty coverage.
I asked the salesman if I could post his name on AVS for referal and he said no problems. They are accepting backorders.
