I recently purchased a 63" c550 as well and can tell you I sure like mine. I was all set to buy a Panny 65" S2 and after spending an hour or so in front of both sets, the Samsung won me over.

So, I pulled the trigger on the Samsung PN63c550 last night, delivery on Thursday.
I read more and more last night about the TV and people seem to love it (including here), but reviews call it "mid-range".
I am coming from a 3-year old 50" Samsung plasma (FPT-5084) as my reference. Has the general Plasma market gotten better as a whole, so while this new one is lower compared to the top of the line, it will still be the same or better quality than what I have now (rising tide raises all boats)?
Or, is there a possibility that I might actually be stepping down in picture quality by getting a mid-range set 3 years later?
I don't care about 3D, or top of the line (not a hardcode videophile), but I don't want less quality than I have now (and I will notice it if it is significant).
