I just saw a display plasma TV, 50S65 at my local Costco and they want $450. This TV has manufactured date June 2013. Is it worth it to buy the display model as supposed a new one at Sears ($699)? They had it on the whole time and the picture look very lousy in SD (probably due to not being calibrated). Any thoughts?

It does not look very good in SD ever. In HD it is beautiful. I bought one and I do not watch any SD but HD is very good. Recommend it if you are planning on HD use.

Costco and Sams are two of the best places to buy floor models because it's never sitting on one channel all the time to get ir or burn in, (at least around here) but you still need to check it and check the hrs.

 

From my experience Costco will negotiate if you can get the store manager to come talk to you, while Sams has to stick to whatever the home office says the price should be.

 

Read this post to see how I worked the Costco manager.

BTW, plasmas always look lousy in a place like Costco when sitting next to an led in that lighting. Remember, you have like 2 or 3 months to bring it back for a full refund, no questions asked. You also get a 2 year warranty from Costco for no extra charge.

thanks for the tips. I was be able to negotiate it down to $425 and the total hours is only 575 hours.

I've called all Costco's in the Greater Phoenix, AZ area and all of the units they have on display have this issue. Visit the "Panasonic TC-65PS64 and TC-50PS64 ~OWNER'S POLL~" thread (http://www.avsforum.com/t/1474301/pa...64-owners-poll) for more info.
If you own this TV, check if you have this problem and call Panasonic immediately. I'm including images below.



Mine has the same issue and mine is a P50S60. Is that a normal occurrence with these sets?

This is simply because the panel is made in GRB arrangement. The subpixels have to stop somewhere... so you see green one end and blue the other... you will see this on any display that uses subpixels in this arrangement, such as most LCDs. It should disappear at viewing distance.
