If you can stretch to the st60, I would say do it. I think you will be happier in every aspect except maybe the smart hub features.

Welcome aboard. Plenty of Plasma owners game without problems, while others have concerns or issues with motion and IR etc. There are dedicated threads about gaming on Plasmas you might want to check out.

There's also a dedicated thread about the F5500:

There really isn't an equitable model from Panasonic - the F5500 would be closer to the S60 but the S60 doesn't have 3D. The ST60 has 3D but is in a higher class - here's a thread comparing them:

i'm getting the PN51F5500 for one my budget im getting it from amazon for $849.00 plus this tv is for my den a very small room this is not my main viewing area but a nice area to get away in plus i was going to go with the 60F5500 but it is just a little too wide for my space. i have the 60E8000 out there in the living room that i got just a year ago and i'm not going to spend another three grand on the 60E8500. this pn51F5500 will satisfy my itch for now, i'm replacing my PN50C7000 thats in the dan.
