I am planning to buy a plasma or LCD television in the near future. I am leaning towards the Panasonic TH-58PZ800 or TH-58PZ850.

But before I make a purchase, I would like to know if there is any likelihood of any of the major manufacturers bringing out a new/improved product line in the next few months.

Please post a reply if you know of any such plans.

Its not a plasma or LCD line but Mitsubishi is rolling out the first of it Laservue TVs right now. Quite a bit more expensive than the Panny sets you are looking at.

Feeling the Purple Power thanks to HD DVD and Blu Ray.

CES is in January and they will display pretty much all of 2009's new products with a round about release date. I think usually the first sets are released in March/April after CES, but it could change.

Exciting times if you are waiting for improved product.

For PDP's the Neo PDP's should be coming out this next year, with higher light levels and even better blacks.

On the LCD side I seen the new Sony XBR8 this weekend. This is a really good implimentation of the LED backlight and it is now the best PQ for black levels and black detail that I have seen to date. Sharp has an even more advanced LED backlight set that not only does local dimming, but does color control through the RGB LED backlight, it just came out and the reviews are really good so far.

I would wait, if I were you.

You have about 6 months before Panasonic rolls out the improved '09 models (NeoPDP tech).
