I've decided to just say heck with it. I was about to pull the trigger last night in-store but got home and read some more comments. I'm just going to wait and probably go LCD. Ridiculous, because if the Panny + S2 in particular had fewer issues (grainy picture, floating blacks, potential black increase) and had an audio out that wasn't optical and
a VGA port, I'd have bought it days ago.
And since the Panasonic is the only brand with a 1080p 42", I"m pretty much stuck with LCD at this point. Hopefully I can get a Samsung with the glossy screen like my current living room model which looks very plasma-like with the better blacks and colors but is missing the nice hz rate.
Oh well. I'm just going to hook up my 32" Westinghouse and say screw it for now. Too much stress. Maybe next year if reviews are stellar I'll get a Panny.
