and how do you rate them, 1-10? Personally, I have a 42 inch Sanyo Plasma HD that i bought in Jan. 07, paid $1050 for, and absolutely love it. I currently have Time Warner Cable and their HD lineup really sucks. I am a sales trainer for a multi satellite provider and am really undecided as to what service provider i want. Dish has the most HD right now, but DTV is talking big s*#t about 70 plus channels in a few months. What is your experience?


I have a 50 inch Pioneer Plasma Hd that i purchase in Nov 06 for the family room and a 43 inch Pioneer Plasma Hd for the bed room. I can say im very happy with both and im connected to DTV.

Panasonic TH-65PX600U (1080P)
NEC PX-61XM2PA/S (This set is so old it does not have HDMI inputs, February
2004, but still has a great picture with component inputs)
Sony KLV-S23A10
Panasonic TC-22LH1

I have Verizon Fios hooked up to the Panasonic 65 via HDMI. I have component
digital cable also to the same set with component, because the cable box does not have HDMI.

On the NEC 61, I have Verizon Fios and digital cable hooked up via component.
Watching HD baseball on the NEC 61 wih Fios channels Comcast Sportsnet
Philadelphia, YES or SNY there is a much sharper and more vibrant picture than
MLB HD on digital cable. MLB HD looks like HD lite with faded colors.

However, watching HD baseball on the Panasonic 65, there is very little difference
in picture quality between Fios HD channels CSN, YES and SNY and digital cable
MLB HD (which is hooked up via component). There still is a difference in PQ,
with Fios being a little better, but digital cable no longer looks like HD lite on
the Panasonic 65. So the only thing that I can figure is the 1080P set somehow
improves the picture. Also the Fios HD channels on the 65 set have better PQ than the 61 set.

I like all my sets. The 1080P set has the best picture even though the broadcast
is not in 1080P. Also, there is a distinct improvement in HD quality when watching
HD on a larger TV, 61 or 65 vs 22 or 23 in my house.

Panasonic TH-42PX50U, paid around $2,800 two years ago, worth every penny spent. Since then, the number of boxes & wires in my small media center doubles every 6 months.

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.
