    Don't feel bad - my 70 inch Sharp sells for $1,000 less in stores than what I paid for it from the distributor in AUGUST!

    Its video. That's the way of the world.

    Good to see Panasonic lowering prices to offer better TVs for less. I think they will be more recommendable by us going forward to more people - even with smaller budgets. This is a very good thing.

    I love Pannie plasmas! I think we all know Panasonic bought much of Pioneer's Elite technology.

    Sharp bought the name and hired some of the Elite engineers......

    Correction: Sharp bought the Elite technology from Pioneer. Regarding Panasonic and other brands who sell TV's, within the past year, many have changed their distribution of their products. This was a direct result of the manufacturer's getting really pissed off everytime they saw their products being sold on eBay for a cheaper or much cheaper price. The only way they could do that was to try & track serial numbers. If they caught anyone selling them too cheap, they immediately cut off the offending company who sold them on eBay. They would then use MAP pricing for every reseller. Selling TV's has now become like selling gas at a gas station. Prices are all within a few cents of each other. It doesn't matter if you buy a TV from Best Buys, etc or from a Custom Installer. Some Custom Installers are not bothering to sell TV's any more; just the Installation, brackets, audio, etc. They actually make more money that way.

    VT25, isn't that a 2010 model? Not a bad price for a 65" VT.

    Makes me wonder if Panasonic would honor the warranty.
