I was told when you buy a floor model, open box, its not New of course. So all these warranties, squareTrade from Costco, say they warranty the Televisions, but it has to be NEW. when you submit your invoice, recepit, it must be written or put down as NEW. One stupid question, it Panasonic really comes to check on the TV for any issues the first year, dont they check their user settings, like tv has been turned on 244 times and has already 2000+ hours, do they ever question that part?
Update, call all the Best Buys in NJ, spoke to like 5 managers, check the inventory of any left new VT50 in warehouse in Pearth Amboy, there is 0 left, NONE!!!!! I'm not sure how true or real this is?
Thanks for al the help
They are going to let it go for $1600 instead with 4 samsung active glasses, delivery, taxes included, and receipt is going to be listed as NEW.... There is a 2 inch scratch on the stand, which I can live with. I'm creative, so either gonna wrap the stand with some Chrome/ Glossy Black, Adhesive they sell in AC Moore or use my g37 paint code platinum graphite pen to fill it in jajajaja. No scatches on Glass, litt'e scuffs in the frame, no biggy. so the total time of tv up was 2,126 hours of use and 204 power cycles. Went to set the tv to clear all passwords in the master reset, did the white clear burn ins, played Dark Knight WOW. I told them to bubble wrap the hell of the TV for delivery, and cover the GLASS with something. Lets c how it arrives.
Last word of the manager....... My friend, you are NEVER going to find any better deal on a TV like this, if you want i can get you the $2300 ST60 model, which is no way in comparasion to what I sold you.
