My understanding is the 75U series is everything the 60U series is plus it supports 1080p which the 60u does not.
I would say go for it, but since you are doing your homework I suggest going to www.avsforum.com.
In fact here is a link to the 75U series owners discussion thread over there.
EDIT: Some of the posters over there are hard-core videophiles and video snobs. Don't let those few intimidate you. There is a lot of good information to be gained over there.
Bottom line, I would get the Panasonic. I have been thrilled with mine. Conventional wisdom is that Pioneer is the best plasma out there but you could spend a few thousand more on a Pioneer and not really do that much better than the Panny. Check out www.plasmatvbuyingguide.com also. Last year there were I think two of the 60U series ranked in the top 10 plasmas on the market.
Good luck and enjoy.

I've read good reviews on the 75U. I really like the all black finish.
Like others above, I think you will be vrey happy with it.

My current main system has a 42" JVC that is now a couple of years old - it'll be interesting to see how the new one compares.
Amazon has this for $1350, no shipping - hopefully even cheaper in a couple of weeks, I need to time this so it arrives around fathers day
