Panasonic TC-P54S2 54" 1080p Plasma HDTV at Buy.com for $969.99 + FS

http://www.buy.com/prod/panasonic...11347.html

I realize that this is not as good a deals as we saw in early January which were in the $850ish price range. However, this is the best deal on this set we've seen since then.

Is there any way to tell who ships this? Had a bad experience with home direct. I like the price. Wish I had seen it at the 850 you mentioned.

I would imagine the shipper would be whomever World Wide Stereo uses for their freight shipments. I haven't ordered any large items from wwstereo before so I'm not sure.

Hmm... I have been watching for the 54" G25 over the S2. Mostly for the better contrast ratio. Technical opinion anyone: THX and the bump in contrast worth it? Might be for my personal mental health so I don't wonder for the next year.

G25 is $1240 at Amazon now. (S2 is $1059) Hmm...

I'm killing myself (and likely my bank account) with my indecisiveness. My max budget is $1500, but if I can get closer to $1k-1200, I'd be happy. I could go with a 58" Samsung Plasma (C550) for this price point too. I think prices seem to have bottomed out for now.

I just need to stop this - they are all upgrades over my 37" Aquos from 2006. Seriously, hockey season will be over by the time I decide. Of course - not sure I want to see my Avs in anything larger than 37" right now anyways.

i am in the same boat and was set on g/gt vs s, but today read the reviews on plasma buying guide and guys rate s picture greater after calibration over g. or at least very similar. they also noted then THX is just too dark and weak for pretty much any room. I played with them in the store and granted not a great light condition, but was not impressed with thx a lot... there is difference in g series in SD video source, but I personally do not care for my needs that are movies and HD over the air TV. All regular cable in my eyes look like crp anyway

Good point on the THX and darkness. I have a bright room. And also not as worried about SD. HD hockey and some video games.

Although now I'm looking at that LCD Samsung 630 w BluRay player for just over $1k...

edit: 630 is gone... so, do I jump on this... Didn't think I'd buy Plasma a month ago, but the value really is here. Reaching for trigger... Slowly...

I can only speak on Panasonic Viera quality, But not this exact one. We have a 50 inch 720p we have had for about a 8 months now. Everyone that comes over has no idea its a 720p and always comments on the picture. The comments come from those that have 1080p lcd and led sets.

And durability....dont get me started. We have 6 kids and this set has been through the mill.....Balls hitting it, Wii remotes, Hands, Left games on pause for HOURS and it has lasted through it all with still a great picture and not a scratch.:bounce: Now our toddler is starting to walk and comes phase 2 of testing....:lol:

We have decided our next set will be a plasma 1080p 3D Panny all the way!

No it's not a misprint, it is a 60hz TV. Plasma tech has sub-field frames though, that are 10 per second that would equal the 600 you're talking about. But that's all besides the point.

60hz only matters on LCD tech. Plasma tech is different (read: better).

I think this is the same set that was on Amazon for around $850 last month for a little while. Missed it then. Hoping it will drop again.
