Figured I'd start a separate thread for the panny plasma's since the HDTV thread seems to be moving more towards a budget HDTV buying guide side and I got tired of reading through a lot of information about westinghouse, proscan and other budget HDTV brands.

I myself am most interested in the GT50 or ST50 models...hoping that the 55 inch GT will go under 1100 or that the 60 inch ST will go below 1000...

do you think it'll work?...that GC only applies to one crappy place called eoutletstores (never heard of it)...i checked out the outlet and it sucks big time...absolutely nothing on there!
Im hoping... they seemed very motivated to sell in Magnolia, I think Im gonna say "and I dont expect you to match the warranty, I will pay for yours its worth it" Ill let you know if it works.

I bit on the 60" Panny today for $798 from Amazon. Especially after seeing it in action at Sam's today which they coincidentally, had priced at $799. It's just a great, basic set with very few options but a set that offers an incredible picture and IMO, incredible value for what you're getting.

Kinda hard to get all bent out of shape over a 60" PANASONIC plasma for less than what we were paying four years ago for a 720p 42" set. $798 plus white glove delivery and no sales tax made this a bargain. If it goes lower than this which I'm not so sure it will as margins are already razor thin on these lower priced sets, I won't worry about if it does a little. Now I can focus on other things on BF like finding a decent tv stand for it!

If you're in the market, get one this week and no later than Saturday. Historically, tv prices are their lowest leading up to and on BF. After that, they start creeping up all the way til Christmas and through the New Year and only start going back down when the new model years are getting released.

ALL THOSE WHO WAITED PATIENTLY, WE'VE BEEN REWARDED!FINALLY!

Was just checking Paul's Tv's website and seems like they've just released their BF Ad and they're offering a 250 Gift Card on the ST and GT Series models (all sizes)....

http://www.paulstv.com/250gc-bundles.asp

EDIT: Hold on!...it's not a generic gift card..infact its not even one GC but instead a group of em...don't know if it's really good...damn! got too excited before even going through the details!
not really that great, its a not a visa gift card or something like that, it is a bundle of a bunch of gift-cards from $25-50 to 8 different retailers.

Most Plasmas have this on by default, it's the anti-burn in feature. I know on my Samsung Plasma you can turn it off but I wouldn't advise it.

From what you are describing, it sounds like it could also be dithering [wikipedia.org], which I understand to be normal in all digital displays (although that info may be outdated).
Meh I do not know, it is very strange. I can understand during like widescreen movies where there is BLACK bars up top but I even notice while the picture is playing. Would it really still be going on while the picture is playing?

Does anyone else have this issue?

So does anyone have the skinny on this "gift card" scheme? Seems shady to me.

Best buy dropped 55gt50 to 1499 plus tax. Not as good as 1499 no tax when they matches to Paul's getz100 coupon though.

J&R [jr.com] has the TCP55VT50 for $1837.99 + shipping & tax (if it applies). Amazon will not price match but BestBuy in my area (NY/NJ) will. So go crazy and best of luck.

If you end up buying from J&R make sure to use TURKEY10 for an additional $10 discount.

I finally committed to go do the touchy feely thing and went store hopping yesterday. Needless to say I was a bit overwhelmed. BB magnolia where kinda rude and didn't have any ST's because they don't carry lower end TV's??? Seriously, she begged me to buy the GT for 1499.......wasn't happening. After seeing the 50's, 55's and 60's, I am pretty dead set on getting a 60 but the ST in that size are out of my range. That being said all the "lower end" units in a panny where pretty cheap in price, now I am back to square one and not sure in what to buy. I may just pull the trigger on the 798 panny at Sams club out of frustration. What's your take on that?

The 60ST50 on Amazon is now $1499. According to CamelCamelCamel the 60ST30 hit around $1300 this time last year. Tempted to pull the trigger but hoping for another price reduction.
