What better way to start off my first post than with an opinion on 2 Plasma TV's. I purchased the Samsung PN59D8000 about 2 weeks ago from HHGregg. It was an open box special that seemed like a good deal at $1,200 so I grabbed it. Being from an LCD exposed background, I was hesistant to buy a plasma at first, but upon educating myself I figured it was a good idea. I would say I do love the picture quality but the "cleanliness" and brightness of the white levels leave a little to be desired. My question is this, how much better is the picture quality and white levels on the Panasonic TC-P60ST50? I still have 2 weeks to return the Samsung and wanted to possibly entertain swapping it for the Panasonic which is currently $1,699 on Amazon. I don't mind spending the extra $500 if it means increased picture quality and white levels..which the latter has a "greyish" hue to it no matter how much calibration I do.
Now if I'm being silly and the Samsung and Pana are almost indiscernible in terms of picture quality, I'd rather not have to go through the trouble of reboxing the Sammy to take back to HHGregg.
Thanks in advance for the help!
