Here is the deal I have a 50 inch Pioneer Plasma, I don't remember the model number but its the one that came out just before the 1080p. My delema is that I love the picture but I want bigger want being the key word. I have been looking at the Panasonic TC-P65VT60 and I know they are getting out of the plasma business. I hate the way LCD shows blacks. everyone I have seen you can see the blockyness in the blacks. So I guess what I am saying is the next thing that will probable meet my standards will be an OLED tv, but I will not be paying the 10K price.

So the question the Panasonic TC-P65VT60 or wait until the OLED Tvs come down to a reasonable price and how long will that be.

It will likely be several years before similar sized OLEDs are the price of a VT60

I had a Pioneer Kuro 5080HD 720p set and bought a 60ST60 Panasonic. Very happy. Just pull the trigger. No reason to wait to upgrade.

I am in sort of the same dilemma. I would like to buy Panasonic 55" Plasma TC-P55VT60, but I keep reading that after Christmas will be the best time to buy. From what I've read the manufactures will be trying to unload their 2013 inventory to move on to the 2014 models. I have been watching this model decrease in price 1K since last year. I am retired and on a small fixed income so I have to watch what I spend very carefully.

Do you think this strategy is correct?
Thank You

I replaced a perfectly good 50G10 and personally think waiting is silly, Panasonic has no need to drop the price for a new model as there will be no new models. Once the current ones are gone that will be it.
