I picked up today (with help from my son John) a new Panasonic TH50PZ80 50" Plasma TV. The price was just too good. $1659.00 Canadian which is about $1324.00 American dollars right now. 1080P 50" for that price unreal. All the reviews say this is a great set. I'm going from a Hitachi 1080i 42" Plasma that was still very good but we wanted more screen real estate and 1080P to make full use of Blu ray. Initial impressions are it's really big compared to the old one. The last episode of last season's Dexter was playing on my HD Satellite system and the detail was truly spectactular and that's at only 720P. I'll give a full review in a week or two.
