replace Panny TC-P46S1 with Samsung F8500?
I have a 2009 Panasonic TC-P46S1 - it's been a great TV, my first plasma, and has really showed me what awesome high-def TV can really be. It's great for TV, blu-rays, and PS4 gaming. I was thinking recently I might upgrade to something a little larger, I was hoping for a new Panasonic plasma, maybe 55". To my horror I have now discovered that Panasonic stopped making plasmas, and the VT60 I'd love to have can't be found any more. So I've read a bunch of reviews and posts here, and everyone seems to be saying the best plasma still around is the Samsung F8500. I can't find any 55" but there is a 51" available through Best Buy.
However, some of the reviews I've read suggest the F8500's just dont' measure up to the Panasonic VT's or ZT's. I've also read a bunch about buzzing problems with the 60" models (maybe less so with the 51" but not sure).
There's nothing wrong with my current Panasonic so I'm not in dire need of replacing, so I'm wondering what everyone's opinion is on whether not moving from my current Panasonic to a 51" F8500 would really be much of an upgrade.
What do you think?
