After a lot of research, including using this forum I called John Kim (949-596-8324 his direct line ) with Paul's TV. I left him a message on 10/30 and he called me back later that evening. I told him what I was in the market for and he said he would call me back to let me know what he could do for me.
I was interested in:
I ended up ordering the following on 10/31:
65" ZT for $2999.99 delivered
5 year warranty for the ZT for $299.99 and if I don't use it, I get $150 credit at Paul's TV.
Denon X2000 for $519.99
John was great to deal with.
The price he gave me on the 50" ST was $929.99 delivered. The price is good for a week. I know it's a bit of a cross post, but any thoughts on how good a price this is?
I am scheduled for delivery next week and I will post how everything went.
Update (11/17): Received the 65ZT60 from Paul's and everything went great. White Glove delivery unpacked, attached stand and gave me the remote to "turn it on". My wife and I examined the screen and everything looked good to us. They then put the tv onto the tv stand for us. After they left I set up the Denon x2000 and had everything (Oppo 103), Xbox 360, Wii, Denon, Panny and 5.0 speaker set up (no sub yet) up and running in no time.
A week later the 50ST60 I ordered arrived. They took to the bedroom, unboxed, fired it up so my wife and I could examine the screen and then reboxed it since it's a Christmas gift.
Heard about the lower price on the ZT, so called Paul's yesterday and they applied the $100 back to my credit card. Said it could take 3 - 5 business days for it to show up, so I will be checking to make sure it shows, but so far I am very happy with Paul's.
Side note: Glad to hear so many are getting good match deals at Best Buy. Since I'd spent a lot of time looking at TVs and asking questions at my local BB I called the Home Sales Supervisor I'd talked with and gave him an opportunity to match the 65ZT60 at $2999.99, which was the price they had on their website the day before AND to see what deal they would give on the Denon and 50ST60. They wouldn't budge on the ZT price or the ST and the price they quoted n the Denon was $100 more than I paid at Paul's. Plus they wouldn't give me the Denon price unless I bought the 2 Panny's at their price. I gave them their chance and as far as I'm concerned they don't deserve my business.
