price war between Amazon and Newegg?

Should we expect another retailer to jump in with $500 shipped?

If they do Amazon has a Low Price Guarantee

"We're working hard to make sure our prices are the best around. If you find a lower price on another website within 14 days after the date we ship your order, let us know and we'll credit your original payment method for the difference. If we lower our own price within 14 days after we ship your TV, let us know and we'll refund you the difference as well.

You can request a refund for the price difference through the "Found a lower price?" button on your Order Summary page in Your Account.

We will generally match the prices of TVs found on these websites:"

If you would like a LG instead of the panasonic on the front page. This is a good option for $50 more. This one has a USB port for more options, and also is thinner and lighter.

It also has 178 degree angle so does that mean it's also IPS ?

I am wondering if that's the only reason why people are saying the panasonic is IPS because of 178. Seems like IPS should be way more expensive in reality judging by Dell panel prices.

Just wanted to comment that I got mine a week ago from newegg and it has a very nice picture. Viewing angles are only mediocre though as you lose a LOT of brightness viewing off-center (we are talking at least 45 degrees off center). Also I wish there was a button on the remote to turn truemotion on and off... there are buttons on the remote to quickly change the energy settings (though any energy saving mode beyond minimum is WAY too dark) and also a button to change AV picture mode. Since truemotion is supposedly a big feature, why does it take so many button presses to turn it on and off? Would be nice to swap quickly as it looks nice when watching sports but terrible when watching tv shows and movies.

Did you check to see if you have an IPS panel? I have an IPS and my viewing angle is awesome with this tv.

I didn't check and am too lazy to look now since I mounted it up on the wall. I mean its fine as long as I am somewhat in front of the screen, but I swear I didn't notice a viewing angle problem at all with my old 32" sony 720p tv this one replaced. It's definitely not a deal breaker though.

Also I should mention the box was beat up all to hell when I got it. I am amazed the TV wasn't damaged.

Has anyone gotten the USB hack(referenced on page 2 of this thread) to work so that you can play MKV, MPEG4, etc files from the USB?

Received mine today. Had the "W", should be an IPS panel. Power consumption is about 135w with energy saver off.

Yeah, I had to buy 3 diff universal remotes but eventually got one that would do it. I don't remember the model #, but the $9 GE uni remote (cheapest at both best buy & target) did the trick just great. Also you only use it to press "2", you have to use the remote bundled with the tv to actually change the function.

I got one with a "W" in the number, but took a pic of the pixels close up an it doesn't appear to be the IPS pattern, so im not so sure about the W being a perfect indicator of what version you have. IPS or not, it's an incredible TV!!!

I confirmed mine as an IPS. I did a close up on the pixel and mines was good. Another way to make sure is to shine a flashlight into the middle vent in the back of the tv right above the stand. There is a sticker there which is the panel's model number. If you got a W in there then you should have the IPS. Mines read LG420WUG.
