I have to find out if its the same with the Vizio, because I've heard a few bad reviews about them dying for no reason... and fan issues...

Do you guys know of any other great deals on plasmas? I'm not copletely opposed to LCDs but I tend to like the brilliant colors of plasmas better...

Always check out TigerDirect.com Best Deals - Computer Parts, PC Components, Desktop Computers, Laptops, Notebooks. They constantly have good deals on both plasmas and LCDs.

Like this: Toshiba 50HP66 50" 1366x768 720p Native 10,000:1 Contrast Ratio HDMI PC ATSC HD Plasma TV with Speakers and Stand at TigerDirect.com

My opinion as far as plasmas is go with the trusted brands such as Panasonic. You'll spend a bit more, but the quality and reliability is really worth it.

What sort of lighting do you have in the room you're going to be putting this TV? LCDs are supposed to be better for well lit rooms, while plasmas tend to do better in dimmer rooms. With plasmas there is some glare off the glass, so the darker the room the better.

I did a lot of research before buying mine, I can post the links later.

Re: 360 damaging AV imputs?

plasmas generally look much better (but there are crappy plasmas and great LCDs too). the whole LCD pixelation/motion blur thing isn't really an issue like it was 4-5 years ago.

fatwallet.com and techbargains.com will list any really good deals on plasma TVs, costco and compusa/bestbuy/circuit city sometimes have good rebate deals as well.

beware of tigerdirect (or any online dealer including newegg.com) for TVs though, a lot of times they DO NOT accept returns AT ALL of TVs over X" (24-27 or so), and, especially on the cheap brands, if you have a problem (like green cast etc), the manufacturer might decide that they're not going to fix it. besides the fact that the shipping to return or RMA a plasma TV would be insane in the first place.

buy HDTVs in a physical store if at all possible, just in case.

I second that.

I bought mine at Circuit City and got free delivery and setup. Not sure if that was a special deal or what they usually offer, but either way it's something to look for.

We bought the 42" version of the Sony 46" Grand WEGA™ LCD Projection TV (KDF-46E2000). Very pleased with the picture and price. I'm pretty sure they discontinued it though.

Re: 360 damaging AV imputs?

I cant get a projection because I'm mounting it...

Also, a co-worker just told me not to mount it above the fireplace... but everyone I know with a plasma screen has it mounted above a fireplace... wtf? Its not like the heat above the mantle is anything serious... is it? It doeasn't get that hot up there...

Re: 360 damaging AV imputs?

well, in general, heat + electronics = bad. not sure of the specifics of a plasma over a fireplace, but it wouldn't surprise me that it might not be a good idea.

The thing to keep in mind is plasmas throw off a lot of heat, so any additional heat even if it's just minor could be a problem.
