You claimed that your local Best Buy had them priced at $199.99 a piece. Since
the MSRP on all of the sets was $149.99 (dropped down to $99.99 when the S9
set was released), that makes your alleged Best Buy price 33% above MSRP.

As far as everyone else being wrong about the MSRP, there are any number of
places on the web where one can confirm the $149.99 MSRP. There's no evidence
to support your assertion. Further, at the time, I suggested that you tell us
the location of your local Best Buy store so that any one of us could call
the store up and ask them what they were charging for the sets. You did not
do so. Why? Because you knew that we'd find out what we already know: that
you're full of ****.

Right, that was the 2.35:1 model, wasn't it. Showing that Canadian
broadcast of Harry Potter months before ABC's world premiere.

You're a loony
