Congrats on your new set.
I'll probably wind up getting a 65 inch ST60 locally for a whopping $2400ish CAD in the next month or so. Hoping I can get a couple hundred knocked off.
Hello everyone! I had to sign up again as it has been so long since I have made a post. The S64 has to be one of the best values out there. I would like to buy it from Costco, but the nearest store is 100 miles and I don't have a truck. If only it would go for sale again on the Costco website.. I am tempted to purchase it online from an ebay seller like Doug and Sammy. Sammy - let us know how it goes once you unpack the set!
I wonder if we can add the Costco Squaretrade coverage if we buy on Ebay? It seems it was possible when buying from Sams Club. Also, is there any real truth to not being able to transport a -new- 2013 plasma television laying down in its original box? There are some well established members of AVS who seem to think this is not an issue with modern plasma tvs. Also, I understand stresses on the internal glass if large PDP or LCD screens are transported out of there box, but from what I have read at some manufacturer websites if transported in the box the screen is fully supported by the custom-shaped packing materials.
AKA - thanks for the input. Yes, there are two still left in the Sacramento area. The darned thing is I have no way to transport it upright. It appears the same unit can be bought from ebay for around $1250 including delivery and no sales tax (not a small issue in California). Though I would much prefer to purchase from Costco because of their stellar customer service and general reliability.
Funny thing though.. The 50" version of the S64 is currently in stock in my local Costco -- and the entire inventory of three have been laying one on top of the other - on their side for the two months I have seen them there. Hmmm.. makes one wonder!
