Hello

I just bought the Vizio 70" at Costco, for $1,665 with tax
But they also have a Samsung 64" (Plasma) for ~$500 less
It's a big difference for 6".
Of course, the bigger screen the better.....but $500 difference is huge

What do you think?

The Visio reviews are pretty good as long as it's in movie mode. Black levels aren't the greatest but it's an LCD. Couldn't find anything inthe Samsung. Being a plasma I'd ASSUME it has better blacks but can't be certain. I bought a C550 a few yrs ago and returned it because I wanted better blacks and picture adjustments. It also had a weird thing where it'd change the zoom depending on what I was watching and would have to reset it. Traded it in for a c7000 and it has a much better picture (minus the pink banding that I'm now seeing and will be getting the panel replaced.) if you like the picture on the Visio I wouldn't hesitate to keep it, especially since its so much bigger. If not, go plasma. I definitely believe that the higher end sets do give a better picture but you just have to decide if its worth it to you. I also spent an extra $500 to upgrade so...
