Wow! This is the most quotes I got on a single post!

I don't mind paying good money for a TV, but I'd have a hard time stomaching a significant reduction in price shortly after buying one.
How would you go about selling something like a 60 inch TV? On e-bay, locally. . .? I never did anything like that and I'm not sure how difficult it would be. Do you have any suggestions on how you would sell your Kuro? Part of the trouble is I'm not sure I'm ready to part with my beloved Kuro!! (I actually lucked out and had owned the Sony SXRD projection TV and their optical engines were crapping out all over the place. After 3 replacements my Best Buy warranty kicked in and they gave me FULL credit of that TV towards the Kuro, which was being discontinued and I got a great price on it.)

I knew that from reading all the posts but until today I hadn't SEEN it!!! I knew once I saw deep deep blacks I might be tempted to buy one so that's why I didn't want to see one!!
There are many of us Kuro and former Kuro owners that know what you are talking about. I felt the same way.
. . .
Therefore, as one former Kuro owner to a current Kuro owner. You have a great set and when it is time you will have a terrific replacement. Since the picture quality is virtually the same down the 2016 line, there is a price suitable for all.
Well, I am VERY TEMPTED!!!!! I sometimes watch my Kuro and the video is plain old 1080i coming from a FiOS fiber STB and the picture is stunning. Yes it has very good blacks but not OLED type blacks! If I did get one it certainly would be one of these newer models, but I'm really not keen on being a early adopter, although I have been in the past.
So at least for now it still way too early for me to consider getting one of these gems as they are literally just coming off of the production line and getting to consumers. I'll continue to monitor this thread as I want to make sure that if I were to buy one I wouldn't have to deal with a panel lottery as was in the past.
So in closing, the best of luck to you new owners and I am VERY JEALOUS OF YOU!!!!!
