Hey all- first post here. Been reading for a few months
I have not had TV for 6 years. When I did have TV, it was a small screen <30".
I usually watch movies and shows on my macbook, which has been pretty good.
But recently, I've paid off debt, gotten raises, etc. etc. and I have decided to get a TV. I've chosen plasma as my tech. I pretty much just watch movies and some shows on DVD- I do not watch live TV.
I've also narrowed down the manufacturer to Panasonic. I almost got a G before Christmas- but then I saw Avatar in 3D. I rank that experience right up there with the first time watching Star Wars and one of my top 5 favorite movie experiences. The first few minutes of the 3D my eyes had to adjust. But once they did, it was great. No headache, no problems, other than pretty much being blown away. (Also first 3D movie I have seen)
And then I read on here about next/this year's Panasonic Plasmas having 3D. Some people are down on the 3D. I originally didn't care about the 3D. But now I'm pretty sure I want that capability.
So I guess I'm stuck with a VT25. I am assuming the price of the VT25 needed to get 3D over the G will probably be a few hundred bucks.
Since I haven't just bought an HDTV in the last few years... I think I am going to go all the way and get the VT25, unless it's WAY more expensive.
I think I'd pay 2500 for a 58" VT 25. If it's over 3K, probably would just go with the S2. What is the point of the G10 vs S2? (Especially if I get Vieracast/netflix/etc from the blu ray player)
Thanks all for all the great info and interesting reading.
Hopefully the prices/release date will be out soon.
