    The header says it all, for those that are interested. I saw this in their typical big Friday ad.

    Hope this helps.

    Damn, this price is awesome!! Will this be a local only thing, or go nation wide?? The Panny 47" is a beautiful TV!

    Gregg,

    I have no idea if this is nationwide, but I would expect that it applies to all Fry's stores (but maybe not).

    These sets should go pretty fast at this price.

    Hopefully they will start a trend and then other retailers will follow.[​IMG]

    Is this a good set? I'm hearing good and bad things about it. For $1499, it sound like an awesome deal. I set this TV every time I go to Fry's. It seem like it showing a great picture but, I wish it had screen protector though.

    The PT47WX51 is the exact same set but with a better remote and the protective screen. If you need one like I did, then you are better off getting that set. The list is $200 more, but you can get deals on it. I bought mine for $1570 from a local dealer.

    Awesome price!

    And I spent nearly that much on an NTSC-only Sony Wega. Damn.

    Holy crow! Panny must have dropped the dealer cost on this thing (as they did with their STB decoder). Otherwise Fry's is making close to nothing on this sale...

    From my understanding, they are making next to nothing. They probably hope to make it on extended warranties.
