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.

The d6500 has the same panel as the flagship d7000/8000 w/o the black filter. The st/gt have the same panel, but not the same as the flagship vt. The pq in the d6500 is similar to the higher end models sans the black lvl. Since the d7000/8000 are in the running for best plasma vs the vt, the d6500 is a very good choice.
Was that a misquote? lol

I believe just like we guys are fretting/discussing deals/details/weighing pros/cons overs here - I'm sure Panasonic and Samsung marketing folks are also sitting in some 'forum' and trying to make life hell for us while giving us the illusion that 'we' are the smart ones Smack They are not making it easy for us. Are they? Scratchhead

Lol not this time around. I've been reading up on the set to give myself more buying options. A lot of ppl on the forums who wanted the d7000/8000 but is afraid of the peeling filter are looking at this set as another option.

I don't doubt that they have people on review sites in their pocket. However, you read enough reviews that you get a clear picture and put your own conclusion together.

Anyone have opinions on Paul's TV (through Amazon)? How do you think they compare to Amazon? I could just buy from Amazon and then Price Match to Paul's through Amazon but then I have to pay sales tax. If I buy from Pauls through Amazon , no tax, and no price match hassle needed.

since the tv is huge, can I ask the delivery guys to help open the box so that I can check it?

6ave dropped the price on the Panasonic 50ST30 to $1030 with free shipping. Amazon should PM and customers should still be eligible for the $150 GC (deal expiring today) and the Avatar 3D kit.

My TV just arrived yesterday morning. The delivery guys were pretty nice. They took the TV out of the box and set everything up without us asking them. Afterwards, they didn't even wait or ask for tip. I had to go catch them to tip them.

did you inspect the tv using flash light and have them wait? wow, I thought the free ship service from amazon is to deliver to the door only. did you have the regular free ship service or white glove?

interesting thing is that my Ship Carrier is USPS. I did not know that US postal office does big item delivery.

trying to pm now to pauls $1029 but they are using the gift card /bundle arguement

update: transferred me to a specialist and guy confirmed he would price match but said that adjustment could not be made until it ships out - he said that I would get an email confirmation.... waiting for that

so if this works great deal.... I had to uncheck use Kindle coupon because I am saving that for a bigger tv... which would have thrown off price match anyway
$1030 - $150GC = $870 with bundle - about what I would have paid for the non-3D S30 without bundle- only downside with Amazon is that us NYers get stuck paying tax


Got confirmation email for pm: $229.19 back!
