I'm deciding between the 52B750 and the PN58B550 Plasma. I hear arguments for and against LCD or Plasma, but in the end, it all comes down to PQ and $$$, IMO.
No matter what I buy, the better version will be out in a year or two, and probably for less money. (I didn't put $$$ because I don't know if we'll still be using dollars then)
I appreciate all the advice, but it's almost too much information. We need a condensed post at the beginning of the thread that contains only the facts, both pros and cons, concerning this set. They could add links to important info like factory software updates, technical papers/warnings/recalls, etc. It would probably be against the rules to have a line reserved on that post for a link to the lowest price of the day, but that would be fantastic. Anything to help potential buyers get the info without having to read 20 pages of arguments and explanations of clouding, flashlighting, lag, etc.
Just my 2 centavos.
If anyone wants to weigh in on my decision to look into getting a plasma set, please feel free. I want to consider all the pros and cons in addition to choosing the prettiest picture.
