FWIW, I say take the new plasma over the $300 as well, shipped to your new place. There's value in the peace of mind associated with a perfectly working display.

Not sure why they specified those three Mac signals at the bottom of the list, its kind of ridiculous since Macs output the exact same VGA signals as PCs. I think they listed them as Mac resolutions...

I'm curious, how does the visa warranty doubling work when the warrany is US-based? i.e. if the display breaks down during the 2nd year, will Visa pay to ship the display to Panasonic US for repair?
