I was just in BB and asked them the same thing. The sales guy printed out the specs for each so we could compare because he wasn't sure either. Basically it looks like the main difference is the 6003 only has 2 HDMI connections and the 6000 has 4. Everything else looked the same.

The 6003 is the holiday cheapened version that will have less features including HDMI inputs. It may (but I cannot confirm that) be using last years left over parts as well.

the 6003 has a contrast ratio of 4,000,000:1 and 2 hdmi ports 1 component video and no optical audo out
where the 6000 has a contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1 and has 4 hdmi ports 2 component and 1 optical digital out
i cant confirm about the pc imput becuase the 6000 pc imput is actualy a hdmi/dvi port and the 6003 does not say anything about the hdmi/dvi support with pc audio in.
other than that it does look like a cheapened trimmed down version of the 6000
I bought the 6000 open box on black friday for 970 and everything was still wrapped in the bag never opened stickers were still on the tv.
lets just hope they didnt sell me the display model Because that would not be cool. im sure they would have sold it as a display model.
can someone confirm with me if bestbuy would sell a display model tv as an open box item or would they mark it display item.

Mr abadan is correct. It's a cheapened trimmed down version of the D6000. I purchased the 6003 also and returned it due to the 2 HMDI, no optical and 1 component. For $100 more I should of gotten the D6000. I'll wait it out till around xmas time and see what deals might be out there.

I went to 2 of the BB stores during Cyber Monday. I called the stores before going there and asked if they have any open box specials. Apparently, their display models are also considered open box.

I also bought the 6003 model. I wanted to buy the 6000 model but it was completely sold out. 2 HDMI input is not really a big deal to me because we use a receiver for all HDMI connections. It controls sound, picture, and alows us to connect to all our game consoles. All you need is 1 HDMI port if you have a receiver.

I understand that 2 HDMI is more than plenty for some people, but for me personally I wanted one that had optical out as well. Paying $999 for this TV when adding another $100 on top for a better version (D6000) with more options (4HDMI, 1 optical, higher resolution) why not? I have an older version receiver with no HDMI and only optical. With the D6003 not having that option I was definitely not going to spend another $500 for a new receiver just to run optical. Better solution for me was to just return it and go with a TV that has optical for a Dolby digital sound.
