Ok, so after a few months looking at the New Sharp LC70's, I decided on the 732U. It has everything I want, and a couple things I don't consider a necessity... Namely, 240Hz and 3D. So after searching for the lowest prices out there in internet land, I came across a seller from Amazon that was advertising on Craigslist as well. They're a seller out of Cincinnati that mainly does PC/Laptop repair, sales, service but can get other electronics.
Now we all know word of mouth (spoken or typed on the Net!) means a lot to folks, and they're NOT paying me to say this, but they ARE the Best!!! They offered me a good deal on a Nice 60" Sharp, but I wanted a 70" so they offered me an even better deal. When I asked about the 2011 7xxU series, they got me one! I paid $1800 TOTAL out the door cash for it, BRAND NEW, in their plain box with all the warranty and accessories.
Had to drive over an hour each way, but it was worth it. Now, they did say for another $150, they would deliver it to my door. But I don't mind road trips.
So if you contact them, they should be able to get you ANY TV there is available, plus the ones they do have in stock.
I hope this doesn't violate the thread rules or Forum policies ElectroTechOutlet.com
