After waiting a month tech service came back with a repair estimate of $700+, so time to buy a new one. Big fan of Plasma, have looked at LED a bit but cost is up there for something I'm not sure I like. So sticking with plasma, would like to go up to 55" but not sure I want to pay the extra bucks. Other decisions are 3D or not and what brand is best? It's a toss up on the 3D and I am looking mostly at Panasonic and LG for brands. Recommendations?
