I don't know anything about this set, but I think this is a pretty good deal. Lasts for one day only on www.woot.com . $2999 - $500 rebate + $5 shipping = $2544. I think there is a code like taxsucks or tax sucks to get out of paying tax.
Costco is not an authorized IF dealer, meaning no warranty and no $500 rebate. Woot, rather amazingly, is an authorized IF dealer, according to IF. The general web selling price for this set is around $5k, which is also IF's new MSRP, so I would expect web prices to drop, but not to $2500 and $5 shipping w/warranty
At my local Costco they are selling it for $2999 and offering a $500 rebate. Maybe Costco is doing the rebate then but they are advertizing a rebate right on the price in the store. Costco also sells InFocus projectors. But I do agree that some manufacturers items are only warrantied through Costco, I believe Toshiba also does that. But Costco will Warranty the item.
I don't want one personally, I'm waiting for more 1080p units.
