Best 60"+ TV Under $2,500

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to replace my Pioneer Kuro PDP-5080 with a new 60"+ TV for under $2,500 in my home theater room. From everything I've read online, it looks like the Panasonic TC-VT50 is the clear front runner (I'm not trying to start an argument), but the 65" model is still around $3,000. Too expensive, in my opinion. Therefore, should I wait until this price comes down or go with a different brand/model.

Also, I've been reading a lot about Panasonic uniformity issues. Is this a real concern?

Here are the models that I'm looking at
Panasonic TC-65VT50 (Too expensive)
Panasonic TC-P65ST50
Samsung PN60E6500
Panasonic TC-P60UT50
Panasonic TC-P65GT50

Any help will be appreciated.

Id take the UT50 out as its not even in teh same class as the others and add the Samsung E7000\8000........

You cant go wrong with any of the choices, none will match the black levels of your Kuro, BUT it they should\will give the rest of the set a run for its money.......Its best to get see them in person as they are all close this year and each has its drawbacks. The best one, is the one taht looks best to you....

Thanks for the reply. I'll add the Samsung E7000\8000s to my list. I was wondering about the black levels. Man, I wish that Pioneer still made TVs.
