This is my first post on the forums although I have been lurking around AVS sight since I joined and should add contributed.
The forums have been a tremendous resource for gathering information on todays technology BUT I imerssed myself so much in reading many comments, reviews, discussions and in some cases arguments that I literally was getting to a point of confusion and dispair because there are as many opionions and views as there are model numbers for todays TV's and Monitors.
Anyway I was really leaning towards the newer LCD/LED models like the XVT series but after reading and studying about that technology I decided to look further into the Plasma's since they may better fit my needs and price range.
Like any electronic device there are flaws, strengths and weaknesses and it can be a daunting task to make a decision, again, its even more difficult when your exposed to a plefora of information like we have here at the AVS forums.
The bottom line is I want to THANK YOU for your excellent insight on this series of Plasmas. I was very pleased when I stumbled across your post because you have the same sort of environment and needs for your TV that I would have, that being useage, gaming and movies and price.
Your post, pretty much sealed the deal for me and I have decided that I am going to get the C7000 model. At this point, I may wait a little while and see if there are any clearance prices, so I may latch onto a larger screen size for a deal.
Thanks again keep it up
