Samsung's PN58A550 is on sale at Future Shop again for $2500 here in the great White North. I am so darn tempted to pull the plug on this thing, only problems are finances (which I can probably work out) and it's not available to view here in Peterborough.

Has anyone had any success bartering with the Future Shop, even on sale items?? If so, any suggestions?

It depends alot on which salesman you get, as you know FS is owned by BB now but they have a different sales approach (mainly high pressure, lol). FS is commission based, presumably any additional discount they give you comes out of that commission. I had one guy at FS show me a list of upcoming sales and told me he could "do better" than the listed prices. He undercut the sale price on a receiver that was on sale by another 15%. Also depends on the markup of course.

Well, the sale on the TV ends tomorrow so as things look right now I'm going to pull the plug and get it either tonight or tomorrow. I have some questions and it would be greatly appreciated if you guys could help me out ASAP because as mentioned I may be going in after supper. First and most important and I know it's come up on the forum before is can you turn a plasma on its side or in any other position other than upright? This is a large TV and the only way I'm going to get it downstairs would be turning it 180° to get it through a doorway and down the stairwell or into my elevator and down it. Also, could you guys give me any suggestions as to how far off the floor it should be. I don't have the money for a stand right now so I was thinking of having something made out of plywood and painting it, hoping it won't look too cheap.

Thanks guys and gals

Re TV stand, do you have any furniture clearance places near you, ie. Sears, The Bay ect. You could pick up a decent table or cabinet at cheap$$ at some of these warehouses.

That's a great idea Adrian, I guess I could check out the Habitat for Humanity store in town, I think it really depends on the height off the floor. I sit 10 feet away from the TV, I guess I could also base it on the height that my current television screen is at? Or should the height change because it's a widescreen?

Really appreciate this guys

Just called Samsung and they said that there's no problem turning the unit on its side to go through a doorway etc. just as long as I let it sit for a couple hours to allow the gases to settle
