I had looked at 600u and 5053, and decided to go with 600u.

BTW, I think I made a mistake, I should have gotten the 58 inch model. PM me if you need a 600u ( used for 1 hour). lol.

The shades of gray is what gives a plasma the ability to display details in dark scenes. Panasonic plasmas are know for being excellent in this regards.

I owned a 50" 500U and it's shades of gray and blacks could not come close to what an SXRD could present in details, shadows when I owned both panels - it did not have that effect of matching the SXRD in my Home with identical HD material yet I see Panasonic owners stress that as it's strength? It esepcially could not do it in daylight with the sun in the room nor could it at night - and Yes the SXRD requires the sweet spot but it is a rewading one.

Samsung 65F8000, 60D8000, 40HU6350, Panasonic 50E60 LCD's

Westa,

I respect your views and I often find you to be a voice of reason. However, it's not just the Panasonic owners who talk about their ability to display details in blacks and grays - it's in every review I've ever read of Panasonic plasmas.

The SXRD is a great tv with its own strengths and weaknesses. We are talking about plasmas here. Name one plasma tv that has better details in blacks and grays. Some might say Fujitsui may have better details, but IMHO it still does not have the black level of the Panasonic and costs thousands more.

well people...i value all of your input and it has helped me a lot...

i came to my decision and went with the Samsung 5073...

When I went back to BB and compared the two again I just kept noticing that the panasonic could not keep up with fast movement as well as the samsung. The panasonic would become pixallated at times while the samsung was smooth. Also the blacks are the samsung were so much more evident...

We were watching somone in a black scuba suit and on the panasonic it was real black but the samsung was a well...i guess a cleaner black because you could see much more detail on the suit on the samsung...you could see the folds and ripples and the company name on it real well and the panasonic you could not see this...it was just all a dark black

panasonic was just too pixallated at times so i had to go with the samsung for that reason

got the samsung pretty cheap too...2650 i feel is a nice deal

so the sammy's just went on sale and now panny's and sammy's are a push.. I have 3 days left to return my panasonic.. at the price I'd say there a push.. the greens are the issue in panasonic but you can adjust them. they say they last as long as a CRT and can be treated the same after the initial 100hrs..

Personally I liked the panasonic because of the price.. but now the samsung is about the same...

I love my TV.. would I return it??? well that's what I'm here for. check these out:

So far I'm very pleased with my panasonic, however I'm going to check out the sammy and see for good. either way.. their both really nice sets.. and huge upgrade from my 27" mistubishi
