At the big box stores, which is what the average shopper frequents, I have yet to see a 50" Panny for less than $2500. The Sammys have a definite and significant edge in price. Also, Samsung seems to be making far more inroads into warehouse clubs like BJ's and department stores like Walmart. Samsung TV's are easier to come by and cheaper. Discounting the videophiles, who make up an insignificant percentage of the entire market, I don't know too many people who will pay a $700 premium just to get a copy of Avatar.

LOL - I show MSRP and you show street prices.
So are Samsung dealers offerring 2 pair of glasses (rechargeable) and a 3D BD player included with the purchase of any of their PDP 3DTVs?
