I'm just wondering if you guys have been experiencing this as well. I've been using the cnet recommended settings so far.
Yes thats normal for plasmas.
View from a farther distance like 7feet or more, not up close.

I do watch from about 9.5 feet and I still notice it. It seems most poor sources are magnified more easily compared to the pristine ones.
post #575 of 855
I don't see any noise/dithering on my 42UT50 and 55VT50. I don't have an ST50 so can't say for sure but both of these sets are completely noise free ala LCD even at 2 feet. Unlike my Kuro which has massive dithering until you sit at a reasonable distance so I know what it looks like. Panasonic did a great job cleaning up the picture this year.

Does anyone have a source for a good 55vt50 deal?
post #577 of 855
Call Paul's TV and ask them for their best price.

Is there a consensus "best time" to buy a quality tv (vs black Friday's value tvs') like the s50? As in, now, day after Xmas, leading up to the Super Bowl?
post #579 of 855

50" ST50 for $998.00

December or January.

I made the mistake of buying my 46" Samsung LCD in like Sept. 3-4 months later, Pioneer was selling 50" 5020 plasmas for less than I paid. I wanted to shoot myself (wife wouldn't let me sell the Samsung).

Thanks, how much are they generally discounted? I'm waiting for the 60" st50 to hit the 1200-1300 range. However, I'm not sure if that $250+ discount is something feasible in the coming months, or whether it's more of an April/May close-out price.
post #582 of 855
I would keep an eye out for the 55ST50 at frys, it's been advertised over the past couple of weeks for $999, $1086 after tax in San Diego, Ca

I just bought one, so I'm selling my Samsung Un46d6900 in the classifieds section smile.gif

Looking at the 60ST50 and East Coast has it $1485 after 2% discount, free shipping. This looks to be the best deal out there. Thoughts?

Not an authorized dealer, but you might be able to use them for a price match.

That's a rather short list given the number of retailers out there, and it looks like mostly national brands. Our local TV shop, which is pretty well-respected, isn't on that list. The Panasonic website says their warranty doesn't apply to non-authorized dealers? Is that a load of BS?

Agree. It is totally BS. If you look at the official Panasonic Color Television/Display Products Limited Warranty (http://www2.panasonic.com/static/Warranty/WARRANTY_TV_Plasma.pdf), it states:

This Limited Warranty only applies to products purchased and serviced in the United States or Puerto Rico. This Limited Warranty is extended only to the original purchaser and only covers product purchased as new. A purchase receipt or other proof of the original purchase date is required for Limited Warranty service.

No where it says that the warranty only applies to products purchased from an authorized dealer.

You may want to review their online record. I have heard of many that cancelled their orders with them for various reasons. Do a search in them and you will see it.

Make a warranty claim, then you will see. Good luck!

The lowest price I can find right now on the 55" ST50 is $1,149 at Paul's, which includes "$250 in gift cards". But the deal doesn't say if the gift cards are for Paul's. It shows a picture of a bundle of assorted gift cards, none of which I'm probably interested in.

With the price being $1,150, taking away the $250 in gift cards makes the TV a $900 value. Do you think they'd be willing to take the gift cards off and give me a price of $950 or so? I've heard of people haggling TV prices before, but I've never done it myself.

Here's the deal: http://www.paulstv.com/Bundles/Panasonic-TCP55ST50-Plus-$250-in-Gift-Cards.asp

I doubt they'll haggle that much unless a competitor has it for the same price. Fry's had the 55" for $1000 a few weeks back. I'm interested in the 55" as well, but I'm waiting for a $800 or under price point. Those gift cards are a gimmick so don't fall for them. Just hold out until the price you want is reached.

Paul's also has the 60ST50 for $1499 and offers no tax and free shipping +250 in gift cards. As for the $250 in gift cards, I looked into it and think their true value is more like $50 when you look at the junk sold at the sites.

Really want to pull the trigger and buy one this week, but trying to hold out for slightly better price.
post #594 of 855
In the market for the 55st50 myself. Saw this ---->www.shoppyget.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=84&language=en&currency=USD. They have it for 900 but the site looks kinda shady. Tried to use this and get a price match at best buy with no luck. If any of you see something better let me know. That 800 price rage would be ideal!!!!
post #595 of 855
Good call. But "kinda shady" is a bit of an understatement. I tried to learn a bit more about the site, so I went to the "About Us" link, which was a blank page. Then I checked out their delivery information page, and the first thing I read was "Free shipping is to Malaysia only."

And it looks like Best Buy has gotten a little smarter about their price matching policies. smile.gif

I'm about to load up on some new stuff, and wanted you guys' input on whether or not these were good deals. They seem to be, but I haven't been checking prices until just recently.

Paulstv has the 65ST50 for $1,999.00 with no tax, and free white glove delivery.

They also have a 5 year warranty, with free blu ray player (a samsung bd5300, but they agreed to swap it with the panasonic bdt220) for $349.99.

They also agreed to price match the 3D glasses, which amazon has for $62.90 each.


Any thoughts are appreciated.

I'm not seeing any good TC-P55VT50 deals right now. I'm hoping to soon though.
post #598 of 855
East Coast TVs has the 55VT50 for $1,797.00 and the 65VT50 for $2,714.00. They also have a 2% discount running through 11/22 if you are willing to pay with certified check, money order, or wire transfer rather than credit card. I'm unsure of the trustworthiness of this company, but the price is definitely right.

I'm sorry, but... "Panasonic ST50 Deals" is the name of this thread.

You're looking for THIS one.

Please do not be sorry. I am. I saw Stevekw3134's post and ran with it. I will continue in that one.
