I know a lot of people love plasmas, but how are the lower end plasmas? I know my 65VT50 looks great, but at samsclub there is a 65PS64 for only $1300. I paid close to 3k for the vt50 so how big of a quality difference are we talking about here? The room is huge so I was thinking about just going as big as possible and getting a sharp 70 but I just dont know much about the quality. This television is in the man cave so it will be used for gaming, movies, sports, tv shows.. you name it. My main concern is if I am going to be disappointed when comparing anything to my 65vt50 then should I just get the bigger screen since the room is huge? It is on top of the garage and close to a 1500 sqft single room, but all my stuff is up there in little sections. Poker table, pool table, exercise equipment, coke collection, etc. I don't want to spend crazy money here and would like to stay under 2k so any advice would be appreciated.
This is the sharp
In stores for 1798
This is the plasma
Online for 1288 but 1398 in stores.
Well I think you will be disappointed if you will be comparing it to the VT50, but at the same time it really depends on what you like to have downstairs. Size or quality? Panny will have better pic quality but Sharp will have that huge movie impact. Go see them perform at the store, I know it's a hassle but worse comes to worse if your not satisfied you can always exchange it to the other one.
