Yes, I saw people posting this deal on Slickdeals, a couple of days ago. Ever since I decided to upgrade my tube, it feels like I'm either their or here constantly each day.
It might be a step up on paper, but I took a good amount of time looking at both, and I thought the EX looked better. The NX has gorilla glass, which is thick. The EX is semi-matte screen, the NX is not.
I currently live in Virginia until July, and by the time I move back near a Frys, I'll have to wait for the 2012 to go on sale. I really don't want to wait another year to update my 9yr old tv.
So at this point, I either wait for BB to have a super sale on it, which they are out of already intore, or another online vendor. There is a HHgregg here, but I don't like their pressure selling, and the prices aren't all that great on the models I'm looking at.
At this point, I'm eyeing the EX720, EX723 hard. I'm also willing to take the D8000 or D7900 if there is a super sale or someone wants to gift me one.
I can afford the top of the line, but I'm not really digging the super reflective and glossy glass of all those models. I can only assume the 2012s will be just as glossy. I prefer Samsung PQ, but Sony's displays are less reflective and glossy. The LGs have Matte screens, but their PQ is not good IMO.
