I just bought a Panasonic 60U50 a month and a half ago to replace my 40 inch Sony EX500 (which is a good TV) which has been relegated to basement duty. I love my new Panny, and its the lowest Panasonic 1080p plasma they make, which isn't a big deal because most of the money goes into the 3D and smart features beyond this model until you get to the GT/VT series. I have big bay windows to the left of my viewing area, and when the TV is off I could probably use the reflection in the screen to shave if I had to, but when the TV is on all I have to do is draw the shades, and the reflection is a non issue, it's still watchable with the shades open too. I had a friend come over after I got my tv and he went out and bought a plasma 2 weeks later (all be it a Samsung, not a Panny) and he loves it. Plasma sales are down because a huge majority of people buying TV's are either uninformed about the PQ of plasmas, they still think plasmas have the same issues they did 10 years ago, and most people aren't buying big screen (50" +) tv's. I think the smallest plasma you can get is in the 42" range. Not to mention a large amount of tv purchases consist of people that don't care about the specs of the tv their buying, only the price, walking out of Wal-Mart with 37" Sansui's or Scepters, or Emersons that they paid $225 for and are just going to screw the cable into the back of them and watch it just like they did their old tube TV.
