50" Plasma suggestions?
« on: May 30, 2008, 03:56:27 PM »
Alright, so I got a new house and I want to get the old RPTV out of the living room.  It still gives a great picture, but it's just too big.  So, what does anyone recommend?  So far, from what I've read, I should basically to stick with Panasonic or Samsung.  Pioneer is most likely going to be out of my price range.  I'd like to keep it below $2000 for the set.  I'll be sitting about 9-10' away, so I'll probably go with a 1080p set.

As of right now, the the Samsung 550 series or the Panasonic Z80U or Z85U are the major competitors.  I've seen them in the store, and they all look great.  I guess at this point, it's just a matter of finding out if there's other TV's I should be considering and then finding the best possible price.

Any input/recommendations would be appreciated :)

I have the Panasonic Viera 50" and I love it. Does not get hot, great to watch sports on, and has plenty of inputs for my needs. I highly recommend it to anyone.

If you can afford it, the Pioneer Kuro PDP-5010FD is the TOP of the line flat screen display.  You can't get any better than it.

I own a Panasonic Viera as well and I also love it.  IMO it beats every other display for the picture quality at its price range.

The Kuro is out of my price range, unfortunately.  I agree though, they look awesome.

I'm still debating on which one to get, either the samsung a550 or the panasonic z80 or z85.  I'll probably just end up getting whichever one I can find the best deal on, as all three look great, IMO.

I have a friend with a 550 Samsung and it is gorgeous.  You'll be happy with either option. ;)
