I would like to get your opinion on this dilemma I am having. I got tired of replacing the bulb on my DLP RPTV every year, so last week I went out to the local Costco and pick up this set(well, the 5700 really, but I did the firmware hack).
I love the PQ so far, and the passive 3D, both me and my daughter enjoys watching the various IMAX 3D programs. The only problem is the TV I was replacing is a 62", and this one is a 55". Originally I thought I wasn't going to feel the difference, well, turns out I was wrong. I looked up the price difference with the newer 65" model, which is still over $3k, so I couldn't justify to spend double the amount just for the additional 10" viewing diagonal.
Today, however, I noticed they have a Panny P65ST30, a 65" plasma, active 3D, for sale for $1699, which is just $280 more than my 5700. Now I am seriously considering returning this set so I can get the Panny. The only drawback is obviously the Active 3D, but it's hard for me to justify keeping the TV since really, 95% of the time it will be used for 2D viewing, and 5% for 3D. And I would certainly enjoy the extra 10" during that 95% of the time. Any thoughts?
Any suggestions are welcome.
