    Any one have this display? Looks like a really good deal for $1,400 + $100 shipping from Newegg. Can't decide to pull the trigger.....

    Its a decent set, Samsung and Panasonic are a bit better though overall.

    IMO for plasmas (best to worst):
    -Pioneer (now out of production and Panasonic bought their patents)
    -Panasonic
    -Samsung
    -LG
    -Other house brands

    Sears has been having some crazy good deals on the Panasonic 54" S1:

    Best Buy has only one use..to see the TV you want in person...then buy online to save!! :D

    Amazon has done me right over the years when buying large TVs. No complaints at all.

    Unless they are cheaper, which does happen on occasion with their TVs and sales. I was comparison shopping one of my TVs a few years back and BB actually had the lowest price at the time :eek2:

    I would say:
    Samsung
    LG
    Panasonic

    I too would not buy a tv like that online. I normally have printed the docs and taken them to BestBuy for a price guarantee.

    I am surprised you would say that, but each has their own opinion.

    I was basing mine off the research I had done in the last few weeks looking for a new TV. The Samsungs are very nice, but have a lot more IR and some have extreme buzzing issues right now. The Panasonics seem to have the best resistance to IR, very very good picture quality after calibrating (easy to do with the settings people post over at AVSForum), and very good reliability.

    I based it on brands that I have used and personal experience. Your research is going to be of better quality to the OP but there have been times that the reviews didnt match the experiences I have seen from personal use. I have had many different types of equipment and Sammy's seem to always give me the best overall performance. Not yet in TV's either.

    Ya, I love my Samsungs as well. Probably would have a Samsung plasma if it were not for all the buzzing issues reported right now and the fact of being more prone to IR (I am using the plasma in a bedroom where lots of video games are used so IR is of concern).
