Wow that is seriously tempting. For things like Televisions (especially large ones) I still prefer to buy locally. That way if I have a problem I can deal with it locally and most retailers in my area are very good about making the customer happy.
In reality Amazon is pretty safe and painless from experiences I have read here at the forum. If it does not work Amazon ships you a new one with no hassle and someone will come by to pick up the old one. Considering the deals they often have compared to a brick and mortar store you almost can't pass Amazon up. Its sad but the brick and mortar stores just can't compete and its really starting to show. Saving $500 buys a lot of something else now days.
At the moment I am seriously stressed out from the Holiday chaos and can't think straight. I am going to sit on the idea until after new years and then start shopping around then.
One thing to keep an eye on is according to the guy working majors at my local Costco they are supposed get there version of the 70" 3D Sharp at some point. Its not in the pipeline yet but it will be coming. Possibly as a 2012 model.
