Panasonic TH-50PX77U 50" Plasma Just got it a month ago. Great picture. Love the non-glare screen. I replaced a Sony KDS-50A10, 50" rear projection. It had a very good picture, but the new one has much better detail.

I have a Mits 65732. I got it from Tweeter on an internet special for $2200. It has a beautiful picture, the only drawback so far is the somewhat loud fan. Of course, if you turn up the volume enough, you can't hear it!

If that was to me, thanks. It was a long time in coming. It wasn't til we moved out East that we had a house with a basement, and then it was 5 years after we bought it that we started in on finishing it.

That's the problem with living in Florida (well, living 3 blocks from the ocean anyway). There are no basements in my neighborhood at all. I would like to do something similar to what you did, but I would have to add a second floor to the house. :lol:

Tvs are in my sig...

Just put a Panasonic 50 inch 1080p Plasma TH-50PZ700U in my living room last night... Best picture I've seen in awhile... Glad I got it over a 1080p LCD.

Still love my Toshiba RPTVs though... They've been solid for the past 2 years.

Wow.. thanks guys. I'm suprised it didn't actually PUT you to sleep. :)

All in all the project was about 9 months. I actually had an initial "false start" about 2 years earlier... but I really started in earnest late December of 05, and largely completed it in about September. I still have some small work to do here and there to satisfy me, and the inspectors.

I hired out framing and sheetrock. And carpet. I did the rest myself. We are plretty please with how it turned out. We wanted a shared "bonus space" that also performs well as a media space. Along with the other rooms, etc... it was quite a project.

The Pearl is a great projector, and some of Dish's better HD content on the 622 is awesmoe looking. Not as good as HD DVD can be, however....

How about my 5 year old 47" Panny RPTV. It only gets 4/10 because every couple of months I have to fix the convergence. Ten hours parked in front of a crosshatch isn't what I'd prefer to be doing.

Samsung HLS-6187W 1080P DLP
9/10 (wish it had PiP/PoP features and direct Input tuning)

Replaced
Hitachi 57S700 RPTV
10/10 as a TV. 5/10 as a feature in the Family room and its ability to be viewed in the middle of the day.

Replaced
Panasonic 47" RPTV
7/10 as a TV. 9/10 after ISF calibration. 9/10 for not having a glare screen. 0/10 for being toddler friendly :)
