Thread Details

Last Edited by jinxeddeep December 2, 2012 at 08:14 PM
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...

Note that Panasonic charges tax to most locales but shipping is free.
EastCoastTvs.com only charges tax to NJ residents.

Do your research on all sellers before placing an order.

If you are a Costco member see post 216 in regards to warranty options and differences from square trade.

Unless there is some sort of accidental stacking deal, personally I think you are being unrealistically optimistic. The Panasonic EPP prices on TVs have been fantastic lately, and even then, the 55ST is $1025, and the 60UT is $1050. In other words, in order to get the prices you're looking for, I think you are going to need to lower the tier of set you are considering.

60ST is $1375, and 55GT is $1575. MSRP on both sets is $2100,

Hopefully, you're right though, and I do appreciate the thread greatly.
haha...confess i'm being a lil greedy...i came up with that price after looking at the EPP price...oh well! let's wait and see

Great Great thread OP..

I've been looking for the 50" GT for a couple of years now,, glad I waited b/c of the passive 3d change and now I want the 55",, but I'm done waiting and this tread is perfect to get away from the glut of the rest..

I'm looking for the 55ST50. Saw it on amazon for $1199, but I think it's gone lower. Will best buy pm amazon?

Hate to TC, but you rarely see any of the higher end Pansonic's marked down substantially during BF. Maybe a retailer will finally buck the trend this year, but they've traditionally only offered deals on lesser models (s30 and x3 as most recent 2011 examples).

I myself am looking for a deal on the 65ST50, but don't expect to pull the trigger until around CES (early Jan) when the newest models are first revealed.

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe I read that Best Buy will be price matching on-line retailers in store this year in order to combat "show-rooming." I would guess that their online store would price match as well.

you are right about that...u can actually expand that and say that most manufacturers/retailers have refrained from providing any significant BF deals on their high-end product lines. It could probably be due to the assumption that people who are willing to spend over a grand are not gonna whine about an extra 100 or two...they fail to recognize, however, that there are enthusiasts who don't necessarily have to be rich to have a good eye (pun intended) for quality/performance.

To be honest, i think that the only time we can expect a good deal on these products is when the newer models are out...

yes they will...as long as the item is available at the price you quote when you're at BB trying to pm...

Has anyone compared the 65VT50 with the GT50/ST50 in person? Would really like to grab the VT based on what I have seen, but I have yet to be able to compare the other two models to see whether the price hike is worth it...

The alternative is just waiting until they start selling the new 4K tv's and the prices on these 1080p ones drop...(but that will require a lot of self control seeing as how impatient I am when I want electronics!)

My Best Buy had the GT50 (60") next to the VT50 (65"). Both were playing Clash of the Titans. I spent maybe 5 minutes comparing PQ between the two. Granted, you can guarantee neither were calibrated. Both were probably running on default settings. That said, there was hardly a discernible difference in a dimly lit room. Again, I highly doubt the VT50 was set up to show off some of its added features (96Hz, THX, etc.), but for me at least, you're paying quite a premium for the VT50. It's an unquestionably gorgeous display. The single sheet glass design is second to none. However, the slickdealer in me finds the ST50 nearly as attractive at half the cost. It was a no-brainer for me.

Thanks for starting this thread. I am really looking for a 60 inch panny. If UT50 is for 800. I am in.

Are there any chances a sub 50" 1080p plasma might go as low as $500, or is that just a pipe dream?
Panasonics P50U50 is a budget plasma set that is your best bet for a sub $600 price. It uses the G15 plasma panel, which is actually pretty good, but does not have good calibration options, 3D, internet TV, and only has 2 HDMI inputs.

Still, Cnet gave it's picture quality an 8/10, which for a TV that can be found for $650 outside of black friday is pretty good, imho.

This set might be worthwhile to keep an eye on for BF.
