With the free shipping it doesn't seem like a bad deal. At least 1 to 2 hundred more at other online sites.

Good current deal. Amazon and WalMart had it for $798 a month or two ago.

Wouldn't be at its best in a bright room since the whole front is one piece of reflective glass. Better in a light controlled room.

1 HDMI input? Really?

It's a good deal otherwise, but I've never seen one with a single HDMI

Most people that buy this either have the disposable income or inclination to add a Audio-Video Receiver to it, not only to enhance the sound (movies) but to take over the video 'switching'. Once the AVR is connected to the TV, everything else (DVD, Blu-Ray, Xbox, etc) plugs into the receiver, negating the need for any more than 1 HDMI port.

If you're hearing impared, or just cheap, you could probably add your own HDMI switcher instead.

It has 2 HDMI inputs. I bought this a few weeks back on the same site ($10 more than this deal), and am very pleased with the picture quality.

Where does it say that? The tech specs show 2 HDMI, and the CNET review of the 50" model (they very rarely change anything across sizes) backs that up.

frys had these for 699 last week

That was a different model.

... Some of us don't live in California. (New York, if you cared.)

This seems like a solid deal. If nothing its what I paid for my 720p 42" Vierra I currently use.

I hate living in California where I'm hit with 9.5% sales tax and 10% income tax. All these freeloaders...

Was $720 @ Panasonic EPP last month, no deal IMO!

Thanks.

Sigh, really wish that $688 BF 60" Vizio didn't sell out before my browser even loaded, I'd love to upgrade my 720p 42" set but you guys and your helpfulness are preventing me : First with all the Westinghouse deals, now this. Thanks for the help [serious] and thanks for the help [sarcastic].

Hope along with change in your pocket..........

I signed up, but it's not showing any epp/club discount? What gives? Any help would be appreciated.

You don't have an EPP account.

Don't forget the recycling fee. What is the 10% income tax?

Consider yourself lucky for not getting the Vizio. I got the TV on black Friday and it was half dead when hooked up. Half of the screen was white and the other half was black. Pic. could only be seen on one half. Talked to vizio cust. support and apparently there is no home fix for it. Returned the TV a few days later. I checked the web to see that a bunch of other people also reported the same issue with vizio's various panels.

He's just saying that in California they have sales and income tax. Most states just have one or the other.

No, most states do have both. A small minority of states don't.

Agree, don't be sway just by price. The Panasonic 60" plasma is far superior to a similarly sized Vizio or gasp, Westinghouse! I'm bias and favor plasmas, but the quality of the Panasonic is superb. You won't get that with these other brands. Yes, it might be slightly higher, $764 versus $688 for the BF Vizio, but that small difference is nothing when you consider the Panasonic bring you a better picture. Go to the stores and compare, if you truly can't see the difference, then get the cheaper one. But, I think you will. Good Luck!

Thank you for the correction. I am in 1 of the 8 states that just has sales tax, for some reason I thought there were more of us...

That statement is not entirely true, these are not specifically "reflective" pieces of glass (and it all better be one piece ;o), there is some degree of light filtering--the main reason this comes up all the time when deals are posted for the U50 lineup is that Panasonic's models (starting with the 2nd one up from this) have advanced filtering that helps negate any reflection you 'might' see. I have the P60UT50 which is one model up from this (~$1000 on www.panasonic.com w/ EPP), and directly across from my tv are windows and a sliding glass door--I have no problem watching tv ANY time of day. Sure, at CERTAIN ANGLES you may catch some reflection, but it's actually quite minimal compared to the 2 previous Panasonic plasma's I've owned, and certainly not enough to be anywhere near bothersome. Bear in mind that this is coming from the type of person that will fixate on an issue once I've found it, and go nuts if something is not quite right.

My point is, don't overlook the U50 or UT50 lines based upon an interpretation of the display glass/filter, from someone who doesn't own it...or for that matter, even from a reviewer. 99% of the time you don't see any reflection...now if you decide to look specifically for a reflection, I'm sure you could find one, (hell, you could find one on ANY display if you really wanted to); that being said, if you just use the display to, oh, I don't know, watch tv--you probably wouldn't ever notice anything.

I only mentioned this because

1) the whole front (including the bezel) is covered by a piece of glass
2) this model doesn't have any filtering like the higher models

The pictures of this unit on Amazon give a better idea
