As of a week before Thanksgiving it was hard to get the Samsung 507 displaying in NYC. The only place I heard had one but "burned" was Harvey Electronics at 45th and 6th Ave. in Manhattan. The retailer price was $6,000 for the 60" and $4,000 for the 50".
They also had the 60" XBR but were not willing to do any "tweaks" to the service or main menu. They also had very poor Direct TV signal and a progressive DVD player but the was something wrong with their displaying; it was not good at all. I concluded that it was their wrong connection.
This is the problem with the Samsung; I never saw one displayed because they do not have a national dealer like CC or PC Richards or any other that will show their TV. Sony on the other hand did.
