My wife made the comment the other day that our 34" CRT Sony HD took up too much space & a wall hung TV would be nice. Well I am taking this & running w/ it. I couldn't get out of the door fast enough to go look @ BB & CC for plasmas, again. I watch all SD via D*TV & DVDs. I can't fork over the $ for HD for only a few channels. We'll be about 10' away. I really like the slim black bezels w/ no speakers, which is basically what the commercial kinds look like. I would like to spend 1500.00 or less. What are my options? I notice the Panasonic 8uk & 9uk, the Samsung 42m5s, & the pioneer. Do these come ready to watch or do I have to buy a tuner? Do they have HDMI or DVI or component? I like the idea of buying HD, but I have read that ED will look as good on SD & DVDs look great too & I can live w/ ED if it saves me some money. Is there a big difference in the 8uk & 9uk? Will prices drop considerably over Christmas? I guess I could wait. I just don't want to buy it & the price drop a few months later to appx. 1/2 what I paid(like my 50" Sony A10). Any advice or comments on these or other commercial type plasmas is appreciated. Thanks.
