I was able to pre-order the TC-P50G25 Feb. 19 on the Panasonic web site. I really needed a new TV right away as my ex-wife is taking the existing Sharp LC-42D64U. Actually, I offered it to her so I could get a new Panasonic plasma. ;-) I have seen the new 3D TV's and am not impressed by that feature. Yes, the VT series will be better for 2D also, but I really could not wait until mid-summer, so felt the G25 is good enough and a big step up from the G10.
I received a surprise call yesterday that the delivery company will be bringing the new TV on Tuesday, March 2. I am really jazzed that it is arriving so fast. If you go to the Panasonic web site now, then the G25 has delivery of April to May.
I will post what I find out once the set arrives. I have a Spyder2, so will make some measurements of the set when I get the time. Unfortunately, am really busy at work next week.
