    GT50 then ST50. Don't even consider the Samsung.

    I have the ST30 and honestly it's the best investment I have made to my system in the last year. i would never admit that to the wife lol, I was originally dropping 1500 on a 5 channel amp instead until she talked me out of it.

    It's a tv that will make you start buying blu rays to watch on it rather than streaming them.

    I just went through the same process. Here is the thread about it. http://www.polkaudio.com/forums/show...-Plasma-or-LED

    I ended up going with the Panny GT50. It was a great decision. My eyes are amazed with it every day.

    Another vote for the GT50. I have an ST 30, the deal was just too good to pass up, but the GT was my first choice. Still very happy with what I have.

    I love my Samsung but if you can afford it get the GT50. Overall GT50 has the best Pic.
