To have a set with good sound in a room where an external sound system is not an option, it matters.
If you like your PZ700U that's great, but don't think for a minute that it's picture quality is comparable to the 2008 and newer models because it falls very short in every picture quality category. When i set up my next door neighbor's new PZ85U in 2008 i was impressed with how much brighter and blacker it was then my beloved PZ700U and i suddenly felt a little deflated. I almost bought it from her when she moved. Later i bought a G10 and moved the PZ700U to a bedroom and the G10 kills it. And now when i compare my GT50 to my creaky old PZ700U it makes me want to get rid of the PZ700U because it looks dark and dull and lifeless and washed out compared to the GT50
Plasma has improved greatly since 2007.
But yeah, the PZ700U has great speakers and is only rivaled by the VT50
