Are the Sony Plasma KDE-42XS955 or 37" models close to current flat panel quality levels. I know these are older and Sony does not do consumer Plasma anymore. I can get these for well below half the orig retail. I see the 42" weighs 124 lbs!

Anybody with any thoughts on the Sony Plasma KDE-42XS955 ??
I know it is 720p native, 1024x1024. I do not care about 1080p right now.
Any drawbacks or outdated aspects of this Plasma?
Thanks for any help.

The Sony weights 33% higher than most, but great picture. I think you could get more current version of a lot of products for the same price point.

What's the contrast ratio?

I'll be it doesn't handle the low end of the gray scale very well...
