Seems like a pretty good deal. Drops to 999 once you get to the checkout. How does this TV compare to the Vizio M series?
I saw that today as well. They both use an IPS panel with passive 3D tech. The Panasonic has more features for calibrating the display and on paper better motion enhancements. The Vizio (120hz panel with backlight scanning equaling 240hz) and Panasonic (120hz panel with 720hz backlight scanning). The Vizio has been reported to have better black levels than the Panasonic in part to the employment of smart "local" dimming and the lack of on the Panasonic. I know the ET60 European model offers local dimming with an "Adaptive backlight", but have not seen it on the North American version. If black levels are a concern than I would get an ST60 plasma or the Vizio if prefer an LED, but overall features with great picture quality w/decent black levels go for the Panasonic.
