Just joined the plasma club - when do I get my matching jacket?
1. The "Model" you have.
Panasonic TH-50PHD8UK. Bought it from Newegg. I have dealt with them for years (almost exclusively buying computer components) and found the price (which has recently gone up) and shipping very reasonable. Shipped the same day it was ordered.
2. What convinced you to purchase this particular "Model".
Reviews and comments from other people. I had never seen the commercial model in action but had seen the consumer version several times and had been very impressed. Figured same glass and electronics, so why not? Also, couldn't stand the silver accent on the consumer model.
3. What you like best about your Plasma.
Ummm, it's mine - get away from it.
4. What you don't like about your Plasma.
It's not legal in my state to become married to an object. However, it is legal to marry someone you objectify.
5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your Plasma had.
In-home warranty. Hope I won't need it because it will be h*ll to carry in.
6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacture" about your Plasma.
None, I actually was so impressed, I bought stock in the parent company (seriously - following Warren Buffet's "buy what you know" theory).
7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your Plasma.
That 50" is over four feet.
8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your Plasma.
None yet (knock on wood, thany you merciful god...)
9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Pretty close. A fully loaded (HDMI and DVI carded 8UK, with stand, shipped) is still mid-three large. I think if they can break 3 large for this package, it is more than fair.
10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
If you get one, remind yourself to blink every hour or so...
Seriously, search these pages for help with the initial settings. They are not gosphel, but rather a good starting place.
BTW, thank you to all the contributors and adminstrators of this board. You are an immense help to all of us who are behind on the learning curve. Every post is appreciated.
