Unfortunately, it appears the Pioneer SD-532HD5 is no longer available at Sam's Club. It was there early last evening but disappeared later in the night. It's not even listed when you go through a search for "Pioneer." Dang! He who hesitates is lost, I guess.
Hopefully, they're just temporarily out of stock and will-reinstitute that fantastic price if and when more arrive.
Wow, I guess i made up my mind just in time. I ordered mine just before that, (on the 8th) it shipped on the 10th and got it on the 15th. Less than 3000 delivered into my 3rd floor apt! Maybe i got the last one http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif And so far, i'm diggin the TV. I hope you are right though, i was debating between that and the 56H80, the price is what sold me. So hopefully they will have it again. I found it odd that they didn't carry it in their stores.

I also got mine for ~$2800 a year ago (last august) and have been very pleased with the set. Good luck to everyone in acquiring one of their own at such a great price!
FWIW: After 11 months of very frequent (hours daily) usage I've noticed very little convergence drift and also no perceptible brightness/burn-in issues whatsoever. The only thing I like more about the Toshiba is the ability to change sceen modes while in 480p or 1080i, which the pioneer doesn't do (only in NTSC/480i will it stretch/zoom/etc).
