    This is just sad - poorly informed consumers bought into a inferior technology and the better performing one is now just about gone. Even Consumer Reports is lamenting this:

    I just hope my 3 plasma sets hold out for a long time until there is actually something comparable to replace them with.

    I just purchased my Samsung 60" plasma (PN60FN5300) this weekend. I'm far from a videophile and I know this isn't considered a "high end" plasma, but I am absolutely loving this television. Found it in the clearance section all by its lonesome, away from the flash and flare of its LED-LCD friends, for hundreds less than a LED or LCD 60" counterpart. I've been scouting and searching for a few weeks before making a purchase and felt comfortable enough to jump at this one when I saw it on the shelves. Found some settings online to help maximize its potential and have been nothing but happy over the past 96 hours!

    I'm so happy I grabbed a Panasonic 65" ZT60 before Panny discontinued its plasma business. It has the best PQ among the displays I've owned, including a couple of Fujitsus. Even better, I got it at dealer cost! :)

    I've had mine for over two years, and couldn't be happier with the set- you made a great purchase! It's not particularly "smart", but then neither am I. I like watching HD anyway, and my bandwidth isn't big enough to allow any smart content to go HD.

    I've got a Google Chromecast stick to handle Netflix/YouTube/etc. I've been toying back and forth between component vs HDMI (which is another discussion for another thread) to watch satellite content to keep an HDMI port available strictly for Blu-Ray. I haven't noticed much difference so far, but it's still breaking itself in, I guess. So maybe in a couple of weeks things will change.

    There are any number of HDMI switches available on the market. I have an IOGear automatic switch that works very well. I also have a Monoprice switch with remote that also works quite well.
