I had my eye on the M Series last year, but the Panny caught my attention, and for the price at 65", I jumped. The M Series still has common LCD issues (i.e., the flashlighting, for example), but it produces a good picture and has good aesthetics.

If you are interested I suggest checking Sears Outlet they still have some New in box Panasonic Plasmas (varies from area to area).
Is PB6650 that bad? I was looking to get one.

Picture dynamics are usually not LG's strong suit. I haven't been able to find the numbers on this particular set, but not to my surprise, the contrast and black levels on the similar B6600 are very mediocre. http://televisions.reviewed.com/cont...ew/the-science. You may want to consider the much better Samsung F5300 series instead.

Yesterday my TC-P42s60 made a loud popping noise and went blank. When plugged in, it now emits 3 or 4 LED blinks. The set was manufactured in Jan 2013 and purchased in August 2013. It was working just fine till this point. I have ordered a replacement part and will likely take it into the local repair shop. But I'm not sure it's worth it...well, actually I hope it is since the TV is so awesome. Any thoughts?

The TV is close enough to the warranty period that it may still be covered. Unless the set requires a new panel, you probably have nothing to be concerned about. I would contact Panasonic before doing anything.

Ian provided a great link that shows how this manifests in content. It drove me to buy a plasma. I just couldn't stand the constant glow from the corners of my edge-lit LED when watching movies that had the black bars. And even during full-screen 16:9 content I would notice the corners were lighter than the rest of the screen.

^ agreed. My father-in-law bought a 2012 Samsung D4000 series LED LCD.. he picked that one because the panel was actually black instead of off-black/grey, for better picture ya know.

Problem is that the lower corners flashlight so bad I really cant watch his tv if its a dark show or one that has letterbox bars on it. Colors and motion are very good on his tv, crisp clear image. But the black levels and flashlighting make me want to vomit. I go home and sit in front of my 55s60 and am BLOWN AWAY by the difference.

Unfortunately these issues are difficult to see in overly bright environments when these TV's are on display. Manufacturers like Vizio and Toshiba are currently offering FALD sets even for those on a budget. Although they don't offer the same PQ and black level uniformity as most plasmas, you can now avoid edge lit LED LCD's without burning a hole in your pocket.

Assuming you're getting the PN51F5300"B"FXZA, both models have comparable PQ. (The original 'A' version is fairly behind the Panny, the new 'B' revision is not) The S60 will have edge in keeping ANSI contrast ratio while the F5300 will have advantage in ABL/brightness. The F5300 suffers more from reflections though. The F5300 also has an risk with a pink tinting. The S60 is has more grains and noise because of dithering.

When everything is said and done, it's pretty much a tie for both models. You will not be having a buyer's remorse just because you picked one over the other, both are great sets for movies!

Thank you. The reason i asked because some one from my local area selling his ps5o for 600 used. And i can get the samsjng 51 for the same price brand new. So if they are both the same goos for.movies i will just get the samsung. Thanks again.

And if you can get the 51 inch one for $600, why not spend $50~$100 more and go up to the 60 inch pentile model? The 60 inch F5300B is being sold at a killer price. Too bad about its pink tinting though...
