Perhaps so.. If thats the case, thats pathetic! I even told the guy others on AVS forum were getting that deal, but he told me they stopped that particular promotion a couple weeks ago. Seems fishy that before he could give me his best price, he wanted to know the exact price I had seen/ heard of from other places, or from other people at EE. Once he pryed the $1299 price from me, he first told me that he could do $1550 shipped. I told him that I could get it on ebay for $1479, or get an open box from audioholics for $1299 with free shipping. After warning me that audioholics wasnt an authorized dealer, he seemingly reluctantly told me $1450.
I then asked him if he could get me a better deal if I purchased a projector from them also. Maybe do a package deal sort of thing. I am planning to get an Epson 5010 for my build also. He said all he had was the 5010E (the wireless HDMI version). Best he could do on that was $2755. Anyone can get the 5010 pretty much anywhere for $2599. Granted, he was quoting the 5010E, but I don’t want or need that.
If anyone else gets a quote for $1299 (or less) from here on out, please post the name of the rep you got the quote from. I’ll be keeping a close eye on this thread now.
