So this is my first post so be gentle pls....ok so right now i have a 42in panny plasma and its really good but i dont have the model number right now, ill put it up in a bit. After about 3yrs now im just so use to it and it just seems small now. Im a gamer and a huge movie buff. Im in an appt and i pplay games watch netflix and blu ray off of ps3. I only watch and play at night pretty much so washing out wouldnt really be a problem with light. After trying to look for some hours i saw that Panasonic TC-P60U50 seems to be maybe the best choice?? I would like something above 55in or that...my budget is under 1000. Any help would be great or any other choices. I know this site is the place to go to help me the most on my decision.

You seem like you're having such a good time all by yourself...be patient, this isn't a chat room. Personally I'd steer you towards a Samsung but not familiar with offerings at that price point, I'd start with the Samsung site and look for the options/sizes you're interested in then go shopping...

This kind of forum you can wait days, let alone hours. You may never get a response depending on how much evidence you provide of your own research....which so far is pretty much zero. "ppl" "saying" things is pretty much useless....

You're asking a question only you can provide the answer to. You're asking for someone to pick a tv for you and everyone's opinion is different. One tv for someone might not be the tv for another person. The one you picked sounds good (P60U50) sounds good, since you don't need a smart tv, because you're using your PS3 for internet content. It's under 1000, as a matter of fact, 898 on Amazon. Have at it hoss.

How about 2 or 3 that you're interested in and what features they have that you like/want? After your hours of research you must have some criteria? What is it about the P60U50 you like other than screen size and price? Personally I think you should save a bit more and go a bit larger than 50/51...like this http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-PN59D7000-59-Inch-1080p-Plasma/dp/B004MN79A0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1352954305&sr=8-1&keywords=pn60d7000

Well mainly like I said it will be for gaming and movies....my budget is pretty much 1000. I dont really need apps on the tv or 3d for that matter. Im pretty much just going for a good big screen budget plasma thats good for picture quality and i dont need all the bells and whistles. If that helps any.

The TC-P60U50 does seem to fit the bill based on what you've said.

The thing about picking out a TV is everyone has their own preferences. All TVs have pluses and mnuses. For instance, some TVs perform better for 3D than others. You may want to scan some Cnet reviews of models you are considering. The next step is to go out and look at the TVs in person.

Yeah i tried to go look at some but I wasnt sure where else to look. I went to walmart to look cause it was on the website but i guess it was a online sale only. I mean i would really like to see it in person before hand so maybe i can try some other places. We either have really high end home audio here or just walmart and best buy stuff but not alot of selection. Thx for the help so far....im pretty sure i will be getting this one anyways.

Well your $1,000 budget really limits your choices in the 60 inch class and the 60U50 is far and away the best 60 incher for the money, so unless you're willing to raise your budget by at least a few hundred bucks then this is the only one to get.

What good will it do you to look at it before buying? The picture quality in the store will probably be marginal to poor (crappy feed and improper settings), and since it's just as reflective as your 42U2 the bright store lighting will adversely affect the picture and may scare you away from buying it wink.gif

Just buy it - preferably from a seller with a 30-day return policy. Amazon has it for under $800 right now!

So ive been looking around and trying to read some things and i noticed ppl talking about input lag. I saw what it is and im a huge gamer so thats a pretty big deal for me...is it different from tv to tv or a bigger the tv thing or something?? Just trying to see if this would be a big factor on choosing a tv as well.
