So for now you can't beat the panny when it comes to $$$ and value. I have seen the Panny in several different atmospheres and I had NO issues with Glare. The TV is nice and bright and I was SHOCKED how good it looked. (And again, I'm a HUGE LCD guy)
That's helpful, thank you. I'm having issues with my 61" JVC LCOS which would probably be replaced in the next few wks so the 58" Panny has been a front runner. 50/52" would be too dramatic of a downsize although my wife would prefer it. A 60" Kuro is a bit more than I'd want to spend with a no chance in hell W.A.F.
