I please need help deciding. I had ordered the Panny VT50, but the first set was transported improperly, the second set was lost in transit, and the third arrived with the screen cracked internally. I never was able to set the system up, and was not very impressed witht he quality of materials. The unit is going to replace an old Sony XBR CRT TV from 2002. The unit is going to be mounted on the wall on a 14 x 14 room with only one window, so it will remain dark at all times. I rarely watch sports and do not play much video games. I love the bight colors of LED's, but also the deep blacks of Plasmas. Which one would you choose, and why? The price difference would be $400.00 higher for the Sony. Please advise. I am a little scared with the issues that I had with the Panasonic, dead or stuck pixels, IR, and other issues inherent with Plasmas. Is the Sony prone to any issues? I have heard of banding and creasing? Additionally, is the Sony being discontinued? I need to place the order by tomorrow, so please provide opinions. Is the Sony easier to calibrate than the Panasonic? Please advise. Thank you.
