If anyone in the Boston area is interested in a floor model 65ZT60 with about 2200 hours on it I am returning one to Paul's TV in Natick this morning. Price would be about $2,800. No box and there is a small dent and a scratch on the base - no problem if you're going to wall mount of course. I'm no TV expert but the screen looks good to me.

That leaves the carryover F8500 as default champion of non-OLED picture quality. Last year the superb Samsung PNF8500 series of plasmas was our third-favorite TV overall for picture quality, losing out to Panasonic's VT/ZT series by a nose. Now that those two are gone, never to be replaced, the 8500 is top dog for picture quality.

The 8500 is a great TV. I've had it for about 3 weeks and loving it!

Searching in vain for an ST60--preferably a 50 inch, if you happen to hear about one--I stumbled upon a 60-in ZT60 demo at the Manalapan NJ Best Buy.
There's a "scratch" on the screen. Upper right corner, evidently not visible when the TV is on.

They want $1800 for it.
I didn't see the TV, I only talked to the manager and determined the price was more than I wanted to spend.
FWIW, Manalapan is near Freehold a little more than an hour from NYC.

You should get them down to 700$ or even 650 ...I can only imagine how long it's been on the floor because it was one of the first models released

If you are around fort wayne Indiana. Sears in fort wayne has a NIB 50st60 for 800. I picked up the last NIB 50s60 for 450 from them yesterday for my daughters room. Also HH Gregg has a 65vt60 display model for 1800. ABC warehouse has a display 65zt60 but they want $3000. ABC warehouse in my opinion is the worst to deal with. Other than that they are dried up in my area.

About 4.5 weeks ago, I had been shopping a 65 VT60 at an HH Gregg, it was the display model. I also saw the Samsung F8000, but they had none in stock. The 65 VT60 was marked for 2000.00 and had sat for a few weeks since I first saw it.  I went in about 2.5 weeks ago and they went down to 1679.00.  I went to another HH Gregg and they had the 8000 series Samsung in stock. I called the other HH Gregg that had the VT60 and they came down in price again to entice me to come back and buy the used VT60.  Now down to 1600.00.  To make a long story short, Pauls TV had the Samsung 8000 on sale, I think it was 2479, almost 2500.00.  The HH Gregg with the new one in stock would not match it but came down to 2600.00.  I bought the Samsung 8000.

 

Unboxed it, set up the stand, put it on the stand, and it was very thin and wobbly. Needs to be anchored down in the back to be steady.  That made me uneasy.  The picture, stunning colors and bright whites.  Of course I should have known better, motion issues and judder. With the settings to smooth it out, big time soap opera effect, some screen door and judder.  It was funny, the first thing I played was The Walking Dead in Hi Def.  Zombies kind of jerk and all that, but not where the arm is back and then all of sudden they went forward a little and you did not see the in between movement.  The same with some of the walking steps. 

 

I have a Plasma in my bedroom and love it. I had a DLP top of the line Samsung and loved it, no motion issues at all. LED, still not ready for prime time. Other people like it and get used to it, I cannot.

 

I returned the LED to the HH Gregg where the VT60 display is and got it down to 1500.00 as they had said it had the 3d glasses but could not find them.  That was why it went from 1600 to 1500.  The TV is in perfect condition, came with the stand and remotes.  The only things missing, owners manual, printed it and the 3D glasses, purchased 4 pairs at Best Buy with a price match from Amazon, a little under 53 each.  I love this TV.  The 3D works well, I even tried Shrek regular DVD with the 2d to 3d conversion and I like it a lot.  So far I have only watched half of the Hobbit in 3D and I like it so far. Blu Ray movies are fantastic. TV stations SD are very good.  Hi def TV fantastic.   

 

I need a second Panasonic plasma for 1200 or under, 60 or 65 inch.  If anyone knows where new or display ones are in the Tampa area, let me know.  No screen scratches, but can be missing the stand or glasses, remote and the like.  I just like to make sure there is no burn in and I will but it.

As I posted in the VT section, those looking for a ZT, Pauls TV had a few 65" ZT floor displays for $2400. Physically they looked very good. Because it's a tent sale I did not see them turned on. I did pick up a 65" VT and couldn't be happier. While the "Tent Sale" was exclusive to the two stores Riverside and La habra California. I picked up my VT from Murietta a different store. When I came to pick up the TV I noticed the model floor price tag was the same as the tent sale's price. I asked the sales person from that store as to why their site was advertising to only two stores if the price was the same? He said the floor prices should be the same in store and the only reason they advertised it to two stores was to route the traffic to those two specific stores. There you go if you can't make it to Riverside or La habra hit your local Pauls TV and ask them to match the price. FYI- the se ends tomorrow.

What brands are the plasma TVs? My oldest is a Panasonic 500U. I've never had major problems with the four sets we own except for the rising blacks in a 54" V10. And gonna fix that problem one day.

Wow thats the same plasma I have! Panasonic 42 500U ! Awesome plasma. I also have a 32" sony, that is the oldest one. It must be at least 10-11 years old.

My plasma have also made frequent trips with no problems. Michigan to Chicago, Chicago to Georgia and Georgia back to Michigan. Still good!

What was the price? I purchased a 500U directly from Panasonic after the were sold out everywhere. Probably found some in a warehouse.

Thats high. I paid $2300 back in January. I would probably pay it if I was looking for one. Worth it in my opinion.

Too bad OLED currently looks like crap curved... bad technology if you ask me. I could see how it would work if it completely wrapped around you (200+" panoramic?) - but curved 55" looks like crap.

I assure you that in owning one, I rarely ever notice the curve. Would I take a flat, all else equal? Certainly, but the sole manufacturer hasn't deemed it necessary to go that route. The loud complaints coming from the armchair videophiles is getting a bit tiresome all the same.
