So who really is the king of the ever-growing $3,000 and under (Counting online pricing) 50" plasma mountain anyway? Panasonic or Samsung? (Unless there is a Pioneer or Toshiba that is worthy of consideration). I've read some reviews and looked at several models of each, like the TH50PX60U or the S5053, but seems that so far the lighting and video source varies at different stores, so it's been hard to distinguish 100% so far.
I'm going to be watching mostly movies & sporting events via Adelphia (Soon to be Time-Warner I believe) HD cable through my DVR box, as well as dvd's. NO video games.
Any detailed advice for which one to go with and why would be appreciated. Perhaps someone who has one of these, or knows someon who does. Are there any key drawbacks for the Panny or Samsung?
Thanks for help.
