Just as the title states.... Currently have a 42" 720p Panny plasma in the master bedroom, and a TC-P50s1 in the living room. Well, the 50" shut down today, got the blinking power LED, now LED won't turn on. Plan is to replace it, repair it, and move it upstairs... but in the mean time...


Do I stick with Panasonic? is the Sharp even worth looking at?

I have a very tight budget of about $1000, and I will not do LG... not sure if VIZIO is any good but I know they weren't back when I was shopping for my first TV...


Thanks!

go for the S60, it's a better all-around set assuming you room doesn't have bright direct sunlight hitting the TV screen... in a dim to dark room, the S60 has better PQ than most LED-LCDs on the market today (especially in the $1,000 and less category)

it will also do well in a room with moderate lighting as long as the light isn't hitting the screen directly (since the screen is very reflective and lacks the AR filter that the S64 and ST60 have)

Having owned a Sharp Aquos before and now a Panasonic plasma, I would go for the Panasonic. Although the Sharp had a nice picture , it could not compete with the motion and blacks of the Panasonic. With the LCD you will have motion blur specially being a 70" and your angle viewing will not be very good and in a at night time, you will have clouding and flash lighting. Hope this helps a bit.

our lighting actually does hit the screen directly - an annoyance with our current s1

BUT - we will likely be moving in Feb, and even then, different mountings, angles, might help.
My only complaint thus far is our s1 went kaput yesterday after just 4 years. I need a new A-board, which is sold out EVERYWHERE!

if you can still get your hands on a S64 (S60 with AR filter), get that

if not, the S60 will be a great TV if you can control the lighting in your room a bit better
