I owned 2 Kuros. I was on them long before most people. I remember the length of time they were sold at MSRP and when one could get a discount. Those prices are what the 9gs listed at after the much touted 8g.
Looks like you got in late in the game when the were sold dirt cheap.
Angry? bit dramatic, are we? Not even close.
Barely "COMPREHANSIBLE"? My post was concise, straightforward, and correct.
Good grief. You posted completely misleading and false information and got called on it is all. List price is of course all but inconsequential in the modern markeptlace. It's not about a suggested anything from a CEM...it's about what vendors can get for them...and it wasn't $6500 for the Elite for very long at all.
I bought my 6020 LONG before (5 months) there were even whispers about Pioneer leaving the business, and when 60" Elites could be had for about $4200 (and lower)...which I simply was not willing to pay at the time. Go and check the 9G Kuro thread...you'll see how long they were selling at MSRP.
Yeah, we all realize it's "just a tv" but that doesn't mean people can state whatever they choose, unchecked. Misrepresenting reality here won't give you a lot of traction with folks who follow the industry this closely.
