Deal Details

Piggybacking off last year's Samsung thread, I'd like to generate a wiki for the 3 major plasma brands for 2011. Most of the manufacturers place restrictions on pricing and don't allow online retailers to show prices until final checkout. This thread will allow us to weed through those restrictions and find the best current prices.

I am much more informed with pricing on the higher end models for all 3 manufacturers, but admittedly, I could use some help on the lower end.

Any help keeping the wiki current is appreciated. I will do my best with what I have already documented on some of these models, but again, I do not have info on every model.

Very timely thread....it's like you wrote it just for me! We just bought a new house and I donated my 36" tube Panasonic to a friend and I'm looking for a 50-60 inch plasma. I have been going around and around these three brands for the past month trying to decide what to do. Thanks for all your time posting this information!

US Appliance has made some nice price cuts on a few Samsung's this morning:

51D550 - Now $899 shipped
59D550 - Now $1549 shipped
64D8000 - Now $2999 shipped - great price on flagship plasma and probably worthy of its own SD thread.

For people unfamiliar with US Appliance, they offer free 30 day returns, 110% 30 day price match guarantee, and free white glove delivery. This is hard to beat.

You have to go to final checkout to see current price. No coupon code needed, it's $899 shipped.

You can try contacting Samsung customer support.

A number of people have had a hard time getting their glasses since this promotion was announced. CNET brought their frustration to Samsung's attention and this was their response on May 11th:

"Samsung will be issuing an official statement on this matter soon. We're aware consumers have been frustrated by the lack of clarity on how they can get their 2 pairs of 3D glasses with the purchase of a 2011 Samsung TV, as stated in our promotional announcement. We'd like to reassure you and your readers that they will get their glasses and will be sharing information shortly."

Been aiming for a Samsung UN65C8000 LED, seems like there will never be a deal. Would anyone else jump the 64D8000 plasma in my situation? -- I've researched Plasma vs Led.. but it seems each has its own loyal supporters.
