on 04\\30\\02 Tuesday.i purchase 75u.
this is story of $2200 pt-lc 75u.
after i`ve read a few threads i was going 711xu , but i changed my mind to 75u. not to pay extra$$$ for more light. i need to low light to get good black any way. extra light i think its for presentation which they don't use too much black . we need more black for movies.
any way . i called one site i asked sales person about 75u. and how much
lower price i could get it, he told how much i want to pay.
i said $2100,
he said his boss went out for lunch.he will tell him the price and give me call back. he added that his boss may go for that price. because its end of the month. i said OK . i was thinking end of the month what this got to do with projectors. oh well.
its like any business you need to meet certain level of gross sales. so if they didn't make enough sales whole month. its your chance to buy it cheap the last two days of the month.
he called back said he will sell it for $2300. i said i`ll think about. click.
i called another site. i said to sales person i need projector. he said how much you willing to spend.
i said i need 75u for $ 2200.
i hear him going uummm.
30 second silence.
he said OK.only if you gonna buy it now.
so i jumped on .
sale was done. $2200
after i hung up i said to myself i should told him $2100.
in my mind oh come on don`t be greedy. you got the best price on the net . you should be happy.
so i`m happy.
its coming Tuesday UPS . i know the driver morning stops i`ll be waiting for him at his lunch spot. 12:15 pm.
i can`t wait.
i don`t think panasonic going down on prices. cause they presenting th100 this summer in US. witch has less specs than 75u. so 75u and 711xu is still and will be at that price for long time. i hope panasonic go down on prices cause i wanna buy 2 extra bulb for pj
good luck every one
