Thats true, actually was going to buy an LG cause it was like 900 bucks cheaper, but while I was i the store getting paper work done a picking out wires it crapped out, so I bought the Panny instead.
I spent like 6 months, literally, every day at work researching these bastards before dropping a couple grand. Absolutly had to make sure I was making the right decision
I came to the conclusion that if you have a lightfilled room, or want to play alot of video games and use as a computer monitor, go with LCD
If you have a darker room and only use tv for movies and Raptors
ball, go plasma(although I do play a little Xbox on mine)
