Well just ordered a 43D450 for my new bedroom tv. First time jumping into plasma. I own a 55" Vizio 553xvt full array backlighting in the living room. Tv has an amazing picture but the blooming is pretty rough on off angle. So I'm hoping this tv will give me an idea on what, even at entry level, to expect with a plasma. It will just have an HD Directv receiver hooked up to it and nothing else. What always kept me from buying a plasma when I bought the 553 was all the image retention talk, some say bad, some say good, so I guess I'll find out for myself. If all goes well maybe in 5 or so years I'll switch out the 553 with a plasma, but by then who knows what technology tv's will have.
