I'm aware this is a terrible question destined for the ultimate in fodder rhetoric, but I still have to ask it. Was going to buy my dad a 65VT50 for his 60th, but he games to much (seriously) and by my guess is to lazy to run a white wash program etc., so yea was looking at Samsung 7000 and 8000 plasma's but they're pretty much meh, but it turns out my mom wants to go in on it with me and match whatever I'm going to spend sooooo now we're at the $$$ range of the Sharp Elite 70". So I have to ask is it worth buying now, is there something to wait for? etc etc.

thanks in advance

I'd call Cleveland Plasma for pricing--don't think it's quite that high. They are a forum sponsor and participate a lot in the Pro-elite owner's thread.

Hey Steve, I am in the Fresno area as well. Are you a custom installer or work for an electronics store? Read a post a while back about you unpacking some VT 50's so I figured that I would ask. PM me if you wish. Thanks.

first off, go to the owners thread for this posting. It will only fragment things for you.

Second, Call around. $7500 is about 2k above what it can be had for from a "few" places such as Value Electronics and CP

Three, Its not worth $7500 but IS worth what I mention in above

The VT has its own challenges and is 5 inches smaller. Trust me you notice it right away.
