I went to BestBuy's website to see if there was any price change to the TV I just purchased last month, and come to find out BestBuy is no longer selling this TV (TC-P54V10). I don't know if it is due to them maybe being out of stock and not getting anymore, or what the case would be (new year)?? I contacted BestBuy in asking them this question, if anyone was thinking about getting the 54" I will post an update with the response I get back from BestBuy.

They still show selling the 50",58"and 65" but no 54".

The list of tv's they are selling.

That was my experience as well. Was at HHGregg last Tuesday to buy the 54V10, only one left was the floor sample. Sales guys computer flashing "discontinued" and they never carried the 58. Go to BB Wednesday where they show 3 54's in a warehouse somewhere and 58 is backordered. On Tuesday, the 54 was on both BB and HHGregg sites, Wednesday they were gone from both sites. I decided to go the extra 300 beans and get the 58. Should get around the 20th of Jan.

Discontinued WTF !!!, at least do the 50" model first. I just bought the damn thing. Does Bestbuy still have to honor the warranty?

Well I am talking to Panasonic on live chat right now, they are still selling the models, and have not had any word about discontinuing the 54" model. They don't know what is going on with Bestbuy removing it. But that is what they say.

I was assuming that "discontinued" meant that HHGregg just wasnt carrying it anymore as they had none in the pipeline. Discontinued may indeed mean Panosonic is dropping that size, but I do not know that for certain. I wouldnt worry about the warranty, they are obligated to stand behind it. Should you need a replacement at some point, you will most likely get a credit for price paid, or a credit minus prorated depreciation.

yeah I just find it weird they would discontinue the 54" over the 50" if that is the case. Which sucks I was hoping bestbuy would of dropped the price of the 54" come 2010, then I would of got the price difference back. Now seeing they removed it from their list entirely guess I can't count on that. :(

I went to a local tv store "bernies" tonight. they had the 50" v10 for 1699 (great price) but their computer also had the 54" v10 as discontinued.
