    Any issues?

    Didn't see a lot of negative feedback in teh various forums - this one my be a winner

    Any insight or recs are appreciated

    I haven't seen any reports of problems with that Panasonic TV. I've seen good reviews about it, though.

    I've got a TH-58PX60U which is the 58" version of last year's model and I love it.

    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 have two 50" panasonics a TH50PX50U and 60U. They're great TV's and a good value.
    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.

    Thanks all - this one sounds like it will be great bedroom set.

    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
