i pulled the trigger on this. i've been waiting for a good bedroom tv for awhile now. nothing tickled my fancy until this. i'm going to primarily use it for playing xbox and wii, so i dont need all the fancy bells and whistles that come with smart tvs. as for 1080p, most xbox games are 720p native, and the wii is a joke. viewing angles and refresh rates are a must. according to amazon, it's .6" thicker and 4 lbs heavier than the 42" panny that's also on slickdeals. i've read that plama's are not as bright, but i hope that's not an issue. i also wish this had a composite input so i could play my n64 and super nintendo. as you can see, im more of a retro gamer than a videophile.
I bought the 42 inch Panasonic mentioned in this thread from Paul's TV for $399 (free shipping, no tax). It was a heck of a deal, great picture and sound. And it arrived in two days. If I'm giving my two cents, I'd recommend this one.
Sam's has it for $388 locally here in Sacramento. I've also seen it in Vacaville with plenty of stock a few weeks ago (http://www.samsclub.com/sams/43-s...6110104.ip). It wasn't a sell price so I'm not sure why it appears to be one online.
I actually just helped my fiance's Grandpa set this same TV up over the weekend and he is pleased with it. It's a no frills plasma with component and I believe it was two HDMI inputs. It's a great price for a spare bedroom or master bedroom.
I plan to get it later in the year for the master bedroom if it is still available. Still trying to fill out the new house with more important things. Though I did jump on the 60" LG plasma that was on here a few weeks ago, I'm definitely enjoying it.
Keep in mind, if you need this for THE BIG GAME, this is NOT prime shipping.
Tracked my order yesterday and it's already in my area. Called the shipping service and they said they will deliver today around 4 to 8pm instead of the scheduled 2/5 delivery date. I already have a 55 led in my living room. I bought this for my basement so i'll see this sunday if plasma is what everybody's been saying better in watching sports.
