I know this model was probably the best consumer level plasma out last year, without going into the crazy high end price range.
The problem is, last year the set was still about 500+ more expensive than other sets. Now that the price has dropped significantly, how does it compare to the new generation models from other brands [i.e. Panasonic, LG, Samsung] Is this Pioneer still superior to these newer models, or are the new generations of these other brands equal to the pioneer?
Basically I'm trying to figure out if I'd be better off with last years Pio or this years Panny/Sam/etc.
