Summary: Decided on Plasma over LCD after some research. I love the picture quality. Great viewing from even side angle. Good HD broadcast (Comcast cable) gives great picture. Very little glare as the AR screen works very well. SD card picture viewing a little klunky and slow but workable. Have not tried Blu Ray yet to experience true 1080p. This has to be a best buy for the approx. $900 I ended up paying on Ebay after $200 Bing cashback.
Summary: Right out of the box it was easy to set up. We did a wall mount and the set wasn't heavy at all, about 75 lbs. As soon as we saw the picture it was all worth the price (less than $1000 with tax) turn on the high def and the picture will blow you away. And since we did alot of research, the plasma should last as long if not longer than any lcd tv, this set was a no brainer. Buy IT!!
Pros: Attractive Design, Fast Setup, Good Resolution, Great Picture Quality
Summary: I ordered this TV for my husband. He loves watching football, and it's football season, and he can see the hair on the football coach's ear now. He's thrilled with the clarity and the large size (50-inch). Our son set it up easily (a younger generation than we are). We had some concerns about it being shipped across the country, but the TV arrived in excellent shape.
Pros: Attractive Design, Fast Setup, Great Picture
Summary: This TV looks amazing mounted on my wall. HD sports are particularly impressive on this set. My room gets a fair amount of natural sun light and the display still looks plenty bright and vivid. I would absolutely buy this set again!
