By all the research I've done, for 3D the ST is the best value for picture quality. If you don't have an issue with windows/excessive light, the UT would work since the primary difference is the lack of a reflective filter.
Thanks for the input. One more plus point to go for ST.
If you're gonna go that route, I would suggest Squaretrade instead.
Thanks.. Looks like SquareTrade is the default one available via Panasonic website. $99.99 on for 3 year Protection Plan and $132.99 for 4 year PP from SquareTrade. This is for the $899.99 priced TV after EPP discount.
I guess the TV posted in the original post (50U50) may have only half price. Don't know how they calculate it.
I can't decide if this would be good for a desktop monitor, I do intermediate gaming but it would mostly be for net and movies. I would use dvi-hdmi from my comp. I would sit on a couch six feet away
In general plasmas aren't great for desktop use and web browsing. While burn in isn't as much of an issue in plasmas nowadays (short term image retention is still very real, though), if you abuse it with static images you will degrade image quality and hurt the panel in the long run. If your intention is long sessions of web browsing/desktop use versus full screen movies/tv/gaming, stick with LCD or LED.
