    So, my birthday is next week and when I got home last night from work, my girlfriend suprises me with a new Panny TH-50PZ700U, 1080p Plasma! All I can say is WOW, what a picture on MPEG 4 or 2. Have read many good things about the Panny's here and in other forums and she obviously did her homework with a national consumer reporting agency / publication / website. She knew I wanted it, got exactly what I asked for.

    Now, as for the 42" Vizio now moved in the bedroom.... I won on two fronts! :lol:

    Just wanted to share the new addition to the family...... next up: new surround speakers.

    Or I will.

    I have the 42" version of your Panasonic. You'll get that in the settlement.

    Yeah, she may be the one.... but the Pre Nup will definitely have some electronic caveats in it!

    So what is the Wow for?

    The fact that your girlfriend bought you the TV....
    The fact that you are seeing the HD quality....
    Or for what happened later on?

    BTW: I work in the jewlery gig... ;)
    You need to wow her equally.. :D

    Earl: Yes, Yes, and Yes! May need to take you up on that jewlery gig!

    I am turning 40 (she is making a bigger deal about it than I am), but having never been engaged or married, the time has come!

    You are a lucky man! Congratulations! You need to reciprocate likewise...jewlery will be the best option, IMHO! Mileage may vary though.

    Nothing says "I Love You" quite like a Dolby Digital 7.2 Surround system.

    How big of a diamond does it take to offset a 50" Plazma TV.

    Yup you are a lucky guy, you will probably have to spend more on the diamond though giving your profile:)

    I also recently added a Panny 50pz77u plasma, almost identical to yours, agree with the WOW factor. The best yet I bought it along with D* subscription at CC and saved another $300 instantly on the TV too for going D*.

    For Valentine's Day he can hint around for an HD DVD player for that TV so he can watch those "adult content" HD DVDs in crystal clear clarity. :D
