Just to update - I purchased a Panasonic 60ST50 on Saturday and it was delivered today without any issues at all. The box was in perfect shape, the delivery guys were nice and cordial, and the TV was perfect.
Yes, Paul's is a reputable store. They are offering me a free 51" plasma, but it is 720p. I'm debating to pay the difference for the 1080p one. It comes with two 3D glasses. I like that they are local and so is their warehouse for the region.
I ordered panny 65GT50 and after great emails and phones calls with service I received right on schedule of 7 days in perfect condition and have had for couple weeks and they just called to seee if everything is fine. Saved bunch of money and received the $300 restaurant certificate someone had mentioned in another thread (which is what made me look at Paul's - so thanks for that!)
