    Default Plasma help

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16889005095

    This is a tv i'm looking at to possibly replace my current 65" DLP. I have almost no experience with Plasma tv's, so if someone could take a look at it and let me know if it's worth what they're charging, i'd really appreciate it.

    Also, would this plasma have a good enough picture to make it worth losing 5" of screen?

    5" on a screen that size won't really make a difference I think....from what I've read it's generally considered to be a good TV, and the 1080P and 600Hz means that it's pretty good for motion (sports, auto racing, flowing water, etc.).

    Go with the plasma! I love my Pioneer Kuro better than any other display I own. There's nothing quite like watching a good movie on that display! Enjoy!

    Great price for a 60" plasma. Plasma has many benefits over DLP, but I'd read the reviews over at AVSforum before jumping in. I don't know much about that particular model, but in general, Panasonic and/or Pioneer are the gold standards, while LG and Samsung are 2nd tier (but improving). Also look for Pro reviews at the various AV websites.

    EDIT: Here is a thread at AVS

    Seems it is a pretty good TV, but looks like it is sold out at Newegg right now.

    +1 on the Samsung, Panasonic or Pioneer.

    I chose a Samsung because I thought the picture was a bit better than that of Panasonic.

    Thanks for the input guys. I'm thinking of getting that tv, and either selling my current tv, or buying the lamp for it and putting it into my bedroom (or bathroom!!)

    As long as your room does not have any big light sources go with plasma. If you have a lot of windows go with dlp or lcd such as what I did.

    My thoughts exactly!

    As for my living room, I have a sliding glass door to the backyard, and a skylight (which angles towards the kitchen). The glass door can let some glare in sometimes, but that's why I have blinds.

    Look at the Panasonic G10 and V10 series, the price to performance is incredibly hard to beat.

    I have the 50" model in my bedroom and the performance really is unbelievable, contrast ratio, colors, motion handling, black levels, all top notch.

    +1 for the Panasonic. I have had one for two years. It has an incredible picture and is great with fast-motion scenes.
