Can someone explain to me why you would rather buy this TV than the 55" Panasonic VT Plasma that was advertised at Bestbuy for $100 less?
-Lower input lag (good for online shooter console games)
-Less heat
-Less power consumption
-Brighter picture (good for bright rooms), less glare

Unless your willing to buy the TV for someone, you may want to let people decide how they want to spend their own hard earned money. And btw, I own a 65 in Panny.

Good luck finding a Best Buy with any Panasonic plasma in stock. Even if you try and order online, you'll most likely get an error when you attempt to check out.

Just purchased this TV, have had it about a month. Here are my comments:

Pros:
-Picture is amazing.
-Netflix works great.
-Pairs amazingly well with sony receiver
-3D looks pretty good (not the best I've seen, but certainly not the worst), and bluetooth is standard, so you can use cheaper samsung glasses if you want
-Input lag (or lack thereof) destroys my previous plasma.
-Colors are amazing once you calibrate.
-Black levels are pretty amazing for non-plasma.

Cons:
-Hulu is poorly formatted, but plays well
-Application selection is limited (no crunchyroll or dramafever)
-distracting rainbow glare from lights
-Motion smoothing causes artifacts if left on, especially with subtitles.
-Strangely placed power button for manual turn off.

You'll save that $100 in the life of the tv in Power and AC alone.

Also, some have to consider overall TV dimensions due to a built-in or otherwise expensive entertainment center -- what is the largest and best television I can buy that will fit the space I have available?

Pana VT with stand: Width = 51.9", Height = 33.7"
Sony W900A with stand: Width = 48.9", Height = 29.8"

That 3-4" dimensional difference may be a deal-breaker for the Panasonic VT. The Samsung UN55F8000 has similar dimensions to the Sony, making these two models arguably the best 55" TV's available that are less than 50" wide and 30" tall (with stand). One could also consider the Samsung PN51F8500 plasma -- meets the dimensional criteria, same price category and is highly thought of ... but gives up 4" diagonal screen real estate.

Amazon will price match BuyDig
If you're going to get Amazon to PM, get them to PM Fry's. Today (Thursday) they still have it for $1599.

Well, first you have to decide how you feel about the soap opera effect. Almost all recommended calibrations shut down motion smoothing, so keep that in mind.

I'll post my personal calibration when I get home tonight. Almost every calibration I searched for used the cinema mode, so I stuck with that, but I bumped up the brightness. While I'm sure it would have looked amazing in a pitch dark room, most of my viewing is done with lights up as I tend to multi-task.

So close to pulling the trigger... someone quick tell me how amazing this TV is compared to my 4 or 5 year old 46" Samsung LED (one of the first ones I think)... I've seen it in the store and it looks fantastic, but my old one isn't bad either.

How good is this compared to the LG 55LA7400 ? That is $1298 currently on Amazon, I'm eying it hoping it drops to 1k for Superbowl sale.

Any ideas on if the Samsung UN55F8000 is going to go on sale soon? I'd prefer the Samsung, but for $1599 for the Sony and $1745 (non-Amazon) for the Samsung, I'd probably go with the Sony.

Picture is not better than a VT plasma by Panny, sorry.

Less heat? Yes, not much though.

Less power? Yea, I guess about $30/yr.

Less input lag? Yes, 20ms vs 40ms. Both are considered "excellent".

If you're gaming get the LCD, if sports and movies are more your thing get the plasma.

Not sure where you can buy the UN55F8000 for that price unless you are talking about the NY/NJ clan of shady on-line retailers. Most mainstream retailers are at $2299, although this unit was several hundred lower around Black Friday. If you are buying a TV today the Sony is clearly a better buy. If you wait, maybe the Samsung price will drop to the range of the Sony, but who knows. Both are premium LED-LCD 1080p models.
