Panasonic used to have a list of authorized on-line dealers on their website, but they don't any more. You have to search for a dealer by model number and if you do a search for the PA20U, they say "There are no on-line buying options for this model". Are they going to start being like other manufacturers and say on-line purchases are not covered by warrenty?


Thanks,


Jack

I doubt that's what you are seeing. I suspect that you will see a rigorous authorization procedure for online dealers, but not an elimination of online sales.


FWIW, one of Panasonic's executives is well aware of the sale of commercial plasmas by countless merchants and how this pisses off their consumer-plasma store-based dealers. And the reaction is, in effect, "we can't illegally price-fix to stop it."

rogo,


good thing you did not give the name of this Panasonic executive. Had you outed him, you would have ruined any potential future career they might have had with a member of the RIAA.
