I got worried about the demise of plasma and tried to get the Samsung 8500. BB's inventory system screwed me. They let you buy something that can't be shipped or delivered to a store. That's a heck of a way to run a business.
I ended up with a 60" LG 6900 for $750, about 100 more than I paid for my 42" g25 and half of what I would have paid for the 8500. The g25 was off for a month while I was waiting to move it to the bedroom. The g25 no longer impresses me. An avs member that I know bought yhr 6900 and he's an ISF calibrator! They are probably hard to find now, I got it in November. Consumer reports liked it too.
We still prefer the 106" projector, size trumps!
