After more than a great deal of thought, I finally decided to pass on my initial response, which was to buy the Samsung F8500 64". I woke up this morning ready to do just that. As the shootout showed, its clearly the best flat screen tv currently available. And if I was going to buy something that would provide me the best picture over the next few years, that would, without question, be my choice. However, my corporate forced early retirement means that the tv I buy now may well have to cover me for another 7-8 years, and in the end, I can't comfortably lock myself into such a limiting choice in terms of technology. A tv capable of 4k seems to now, reluctantly, be a requirement, looking logically towards the future. As much as I love plasma, and wanted to purchase its last great offering, on the advice of many forum members, I am throwing all my chips on the table for the very soon to be available Vizio P Series. If it fails to be what is expected, I will have made an irrevocably wrong choice because, after the failures in the shootout, I know of no other affordable or available options. But it was my choice, and so I roll the dice. Long live the P series, I hope!
Thanks to all of you for your input.
