    I must be the only one that is not in the know about these Panasonic Plasmas. When are the VT60s coming out?

    The ZT series is the bomb now.

    and just when you think that you are getting up to speed... someone blows right past you. What else should I know? I am looking at 65' (or bigger if possible) Plasma. I was trying to stay around 2k. I know that I probably cant get the VT or the ZT at that price, hence why I was looking at the 65GT50. But I might be able to scrape up 500 more.

    Which is why I'd stick with the VT series. They're selling for ~ $2400 to $2500 these days.

    Not all the models are for big box stores. Didn't mean that. Some of them are, some are the same models you can buy anywhere. The Sony I looked at was one of the "specialty" TVs. The best way to tell is to go to the manufacturer's website and search for the model numbers.

    I haven't bought a TV at Costco in years. When 6th Ave was still in business, they sold the proper models at less than Costco was selling the "special" TVs. I had to do a bit of haggling to get the lower prices, something else you can't do at Costco. The latest Panny plasma I bought I got from Amazon and got it cheaper than Costco was selling it for. No taxes, white glove delivery, set up in the house, free shipping.

    Amazon is pretty amazing.

    I got mine from there as well.

    Unfortunately for me the greedy govenor has decided my state will now have to collect tax from Amazon, so that incentive is gone.

    Don't hesitate to do business with Amazon though, it was a good experience for me.:)

    A big reason that manufacturers produce ever so slight different models within the same series has a lot to do with the sales and marketing aspect. Store "BB" says they will price match any ad from any store PLUS 10% of the difference. OH Great, you say, their price is the best and they're taking care of me. The truth is that the sale model is unique to that retailer only. A quick glance at the model at retailer "BB" and the apparent same model at retailer "CC" and store "WW" shows them to be the same size and and series. But look close...one model has 3 hdmi inputs and the other has 2; or one model has optical audio out and the other has coxial output. Therefore these slight model differences require a different model number and of course, no price match plus 10% allowed. This practice holds true for TVs, computers,printerts, etc. Having said all this, if you find a good deal on a certain brand of TV, computer, etc, and the only difference is a bell or whistle, go ahead and get it, knowing that the major components and board within the product are basically identical.:eek2:

    ...they are not producing unique models for wholesale retailers vs traditional retailers. They are the same displays with a slight variation in the model numbers. Display manufacturers have one product line for all retail partners. The only difference would variations in North American, European, and/or Asian retail markets.
