Panasonic TH-65PB2U 64.7" Plasma Touchscreen Monitor for Cheeeeap $387.99

I ordered one but it has not arrived yet but for $400, I'll chance it.

Will I get a S60 equivalent 65 plasma or will I get a rock?

Order with caution...GO!


It was too good to be true, they are sending me a different monitor Do not order this.

Mods, please delete

PB2 is a 2013 panel and the very last of the monitors

feature wise it is missing interpolation and 3D (and possibly faster phosphors that go with it) and there is a good chance it might be a reworked ST30 with more power and higher amperage components like the PF30/PF50 that preceded it, could be a real nice set if you like Cinema mode with some extra brightness

Ok this is strange, it is definitely a 60 series design all the way through and 50PB2 has more FETs than the 55ST60 and 55VT60..

I don't know why Panasonic does this stuff

50" PB2 YSUS board


55" VT60 YSUS board

The didn't, I was able to cancel it while it was in transit. The box weight on the tracking number said 30 lbs and they called to confirm it was a 32 inch medical display.

Look at the bottom of the listing, you'll see it says 32 inches.

32" plasma? Wow, that's a new one on me. I don't remember even seeing a plasma that small in the late 1990s.

I remember Vizio had one about 6 years ago.
