I had one Walmart that had this TV instock 20 miles away ($8 in gas money alone). But on seeing all the nightmare with the store guys posted on your thread, I searched this morning for this TV and was willing to pay little more, as I want this for my office desk. Was plesently surprised to find this price with no tax.
Agree with you on warranty. Matter of fact the last tv I bought was in 2005 from Circuit City B&M, still runs 1080i 34" Sony weighing 200lbs. At that time I had online retailers selling it for $400 less but I still went to B&M, unfortunately if I have to return that monster, I will not be too unfortunate.
I drive a Prius! that'd only have been $2.50 round trip! anyway, glad you could get the TV. Hope you enjoy it!
