I'm a frequent Fry's store visitor and spoke about such prices with the A/V Dept. in my local store when I noticed the same super-low prices on other HDTVs a year ago. Evidently, Fry's clears items by placing them on clearance pricing. Even after inventory may be fully depleted, the item can still stay in their system to catch any potential straggling remaining units. Most of the time, all units have already been sold when the pricing was much higher. After all units of that cleared item have been sold, the item may still stay in their system with their pricing system continuing to further reduce the price at certain intervals for months. These "artificial" prices with no inventory is what OP is seeing. Note that the last of those units sold long ago when the price was substantially higher than what is currently listed (what OP mentioned).
At the time (a year ago), when I didn't believe the sales rep. (I really wanted that $200 55" TV too), he even let me key in a bunch of SKUs into their system, where I could see inventory at all their stores and prove to myself that they didn't have any inventory, despite the fact the item was still listed online at a ridiculously low price. Based on some of the model numbers I keyed in, some of those models turned out to be as much as 2 yrs old. So, some of the items hadn't been available for quite some time. The only good deals at Fry's are some of the advertised ones. Thus, the prices OP mentioned do not exist but are such due to Fry's bizzare accounting systems.
