The problem, of course, is Panasonic's head-scratching decision to release the VT to a limited number of retailers. Amazon, BB, HHGregg, Sears, and a number of other main stream electronics retailers are not getting the VTs.
Regardless, the promo's normally start in the summer months and I would expect some attractive deals for those who can wait. For now, however, $2249 is a great price for this set.
Where did you haer that?
Amazon has the TV, so does Best Buy.
The only thing Panasonic is doing for the VT is accepting in store or phone orders only.
