Plasma TVs suck twice the juice of a LCD or LED....just sayin ! ! !
If you run up the brightness on a large plasma set and have it on over 5 hours per day, every day, then it could cost you as much as $4 per month over an equivalently-sized LED/LCD set (as per CNET's numbers). The question you then should ask yourself is if the better picture is worth skipping a latte every month.

Any bad issues with glare on a tv like this? I've always had LCD's so I'm unsure of Plasmas.
Thanks in advance.
I recently purchased the 60 inch U50 model. The glare is really bad, but mine is in my basement. I happen to have a small window directly opposite the TV, making it almost impossible for me to watch during the day, and the overhead light also causes a lot of glare. It works for us since it is in our basement and only really gets used at night. The picture is great, so I would definitely recommend if you don't anticipate the glare issues in your room.
Bought this tv at Fry's a few weeks ago at the $699 price. I do need to draw the blinds down during the day, but considering the price difference between this and the ST it's well worth it. Awesome set if you don't care about 3D or Smart features.
