Gamestop

Best Buy

Edit 5: Seems Best Buy is back in stock, Newegg is now $249.

Edit 4: [damn this thread won't die!] Newegg is now @ $199 [free ship, not tax for most, also Shoprunner eligible] Best Buy still has it @ $199 but it is back-ordered on .com, check for stock in store. Thanks to TheTruth1983 [that you Paul?] for the Newegg info!

EDIT 3: Now dead at Best Buy, YMMV Price Match?

EDIT 2: This does not include the extra glasses/MLB bundle at either location. Just the monitor, 1 pair of glasses, and Motorstorm Apocalypse. Thank you to all the posting Caggers for the updates!


Ok, Don't kill the messenger,this is just a kindly FYI service, the Playstation 3D display/bundle [what ever they have in stock] will be $199 next week.

Buy 4 and use them to prop up your bed for extra storage :bouncy:

EDIT:
I will just add this bit of information, though we will not be able to confirm it until the 27th. When I was talking to the GS employee who told me about this sale last week; he indicated that GS was "clearing out" the stock on hand and that what ever stock/bundle he had was going to be $199. Again, I CANNOT CONFIRM THIS. However, I will be in that store Wednesday morning just in case the bundles [with extra games/glasses] are $199.

i might jump on it @ Bestbuy with a PM, since i have about $150 worth the store credit at BB.
Thanks OP. :)

That's a tempting price, but I'm going to pass. Just bought a Vita for $200 so I have to be hesitant with my spending. Thanks again OP.

I vaguely recall a couple members who said they'd try it out once it hit under the $200 mark.

So this plus the ability to burn some GS GC might be favorable to a couple folks.

I need a new TV, so this is a great time. My son has a 32 inch LCD display that he would gladly give up for a 3D capable TV. I will def see if I can PM @ BBY as well and prob get a warranty on it considering it has had several problems reported with it.

Not a bad price for some to take a leap of faith.
But $99 or no deal for me

Buyer Beware: Based on reports of failure rates I'd highly recommend you also purchase an extended warranty for this; don't know if Gamestop offers them or not.

This is not a TV, but rather a display- meaning that it does not have a built in TV tuner or remote control. You probably already knew this, but others viewing this thread may not.

Also, for those thinking about using this as 3d monitor for your PC, if you have an nvidia graphic card 3d is not supported.

LAstly, here is a lengthy thread from the playstation forums about problems with the display.

Nope, those people will probably only buy when its $150 and under now and then when it hits $150, only when it's $100 and under etc...until only when it hits $5 at Best Buy.

Won't last that long they've been slowly dwindling away & with no restocks around $150-$175 that'll be the end.

If this comes with the MLB and extra pair of glasses, this is an insane deal.

How trustworth is this info? I only say that because the ad states it runs thru 6/26 - why would this start on the 25th?. This a one day sale? Just want to know how "Real" this is.

Very tempting if I could match at Best Buy. I've got $60 in credit and RZ. I had a use for it a few months ago, but not so much anymore. Hmmm...

When I bough mine at Best Buy a couple months ago, it came with an HDMI cable and Motorstorm. Also, no remote. You've been warned: buy the PS3 Blu-Ray remote. It works perfectly with the TV.

Perfect, just the price I was waiting for. I also happen to have a ton of Gamestop credit, so no tax either. Although maybe I should have it price matched at Best Buy so that I can get an extended warranty on it, since it sounds like these things aren't so reliable. On that note, would anyone happen to know how much a 2/4 year replacement plan for a $200 display is at Best Buy?

I'd have to guess $40 for two years or around 75 for four years. I'll attempt to check when I work tomorrow.

Wow, that sucks. Thanks for the info. I'm in need of a new TV for the work out room, a new monitor for the new PC build with an nvidia gpu, and I don't care for poor quality...so this thing is pretty much my enemy.

I use this as a second display for my MacBook Pro 2011 model with the mini-display port to hdmi adapter and it works like a dream!!! no handshake issues, no problems whatsoever. I love this display and am going to buy a second one at 199.99. I highly recommend it

Can I play 360 games with 3d support using this?


I can confirm this. I got one for $200 from the Sony store with a coupon offer they had a month ago or so. The first thing we did was hook up the 360 to it because my son wanted to try Halo Anniverary in 3D.

Since then it has been used as a second gaming screeen in our game room so that the boys can play at the same time (one on the 360, one on the PS3). We've put it to heavy use in a month and no problems so far. It is a beautiful screen, though to be honest we haven't used the 3D since the first day :lol:.

But at $200 and with Motorstorm Apocalypse bundled it wasn't a bad deal. Still, wish I had known about this as I'd rather have waited and used my GS credit instead of my credit card.
