What would you rather have?

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
I am just want to hear the reaction of what people would do within your house. If you had the space on your wall would you have:

(3) Panasonic 42PZ700U's
(3) Panasonic 50PX75U
(3) Samsung HT-P5064's

(2) Panasonic 50PZ700U's
(2) Panasonic 58PH10UK's
(2) Samsung FT-P5084's

or

(1) Pioneer PDP-6010FD

I am asking this because for the price you should be able to afford (3) or (2) for (1) over the 6010. I just want to see where people stand on this issue.

Also keep in mind, these will all be on articulating mounts to give you the tilt and swivel action.

My vote is for the (2) 58PH10UK's!!!!

But your response is interesting!!!

Keep them coming guys!

I buy what I buy to impress me, not my friends.

What impresses me is quality, not quantity.

Just my opinion. (I picked the Pio, because of the size and the quality. I would have picked the 150FD for a higher price even)
post #11 of 42
Definitely the 150FD. I'm going to own this TV for a heck of a lot of years,
and having more than 1 means nothing. I simply want the best, and spending
an extra grand or 2 on day one for something that'll last me 5-7 years is well
worth it. Heck, I ended up owning 2 laptops (a dell and an acer) over the same
year by being cheap both times, but guess what? I should have spent the extra
money on the Lenovo T60 thinkpad. I ended up selling the acer laptop to my friend.

Put it this way, I regret not spending the extra $1200 on getting a leather interior/
cruise control package for my car. Meanwhile, I ended up spending an extra $4,000
to buy an Integra when I could have simply gotten a comparable Honda Civic back
then. I've owned the car for 10 years so far. I'm so very glad for that decision.

Basically, if you're going to spend the bucks to buy something that's going to be
sitting in your home for 5+ years, don't cheap out or you'll regret it. A year from
now, that extra money won't mean nothing to you, but the PQ difference in the
TV will, even if something better comes out.

Hmmm... buy 3 TVs that won't make me happy... buy 2 TVs that'll not make me happy...

or buy 1 TV that makes me very happy?

I dunno...

So you really care about your friends reactions (which will die down) to your owning of 3 plasmas more than the picture quality of the plasma you'd be using? What on earth would you do with multiple plasmas besides show off?

Well I just returned a 58 700u and ordered a 6010, but if someone said instead of returning it for a 6010, just take a second 58 I'd be all over it. So my vote was two 58 10uks.

Although the Pio may be the best, the Panny is still very good and having one upstairs and one downstairs would be nice!

Well I was making a hypothetical reaction statement if someone saw 1 60" plasma over 2 or 3 plasmas. So if you believe in 1 60" to get it done then I respect that.

Keep them coming guys!!!

I like your picks, because the 10UK's would be my choices too...

The whole purpose is to be used as an exercise. I respect your opinion. Some love quantity over quality. However, some like quality over quantity. However, it looks like Pioneer is winning by a huge margin in the poll!

Nice response!

Well, in my situation, I would probably go with the one 6010. I am all about quality now. I am actually going to be replacing my Sony 60A2000 with a Pio 5080. Yes, moving down in size, but I will be getting a better picture. (I'll just move the chair up a couple of feet)

By, this time next year after the prices have dropped on the Kuro 1080ps, I will move the 5080 to the bedroom and buy the 9G 60 inch Pio for the family room. (Then move the chair back)

Excellent thinking... That is how upgrading should be...

A 50in is going to look incredibly small compared to the 60sxrd. I would go panny58 over the 5080.

Absolutely. I totally understand your question and your thoughts and the type of responses different people will provide. I just provided my opinion and my reasons for it. This is an interesting question. I would suspect the general public to go with the quantity over quality as well, but at the same time, AVS Forum readers are not the general public. So that might be why the answers are skewed.

One 6010 is my vote. I set it up for me and the family. Do not need a second one to impress friends. Our second tv is not used that much and our third (old 35" Mits) is only hooked up to game systems. If I had two smaller, I would only use the one with the good sound system hooked up with it. Sound is half of the experience.

High Quality Source = HD Feed, Blu-Ray, HD-DVD. The source is the most important aspect of creating an excellent picture. Without a good source your television will look mediocre at best. Also keep in mind, HD does not equal HD. Their are some bad HD feeds, for example WGN Chicago, which does not look as good as ESPN or CBS. So you will be able to tell the difference.

Good question!

Russ,
I totally agree with you. This is very skewed and does not represent the general public. However, what would choose? Just curious!!!

I would take the Pio 6010. I plan to buy the 5080 whenever the prices drop and would love to get the 6010 if I had an extra $2,000 lying around (and if the wife would approve).

I don't have room in my house for two TVs (I'm not into bedroom TVs). The only way I would have two HD setups would be if I had a dedicated home-theater room with a projector.

I do. If I have 3 TV's that have poor black level, I may as well not have any TV's at all. It's like having 3 turds instead of one.

Well said! I will second that.

Well stated; I agree. Also, FSN north is a TERRIBLE broadcast. It's hard to watch Brewer games in SD...well, and because we are sucking the bag lately.

Oh, and I would take the 6010, of course. Best display out right now, IMO.

Well, I hope your wrong, but I will just have to get used to it. I've always felt the 60 inch was a tad big for my smaller living room. Like I said, I will try and compensate by scooting my recliner up a few feet. That will leave me about 8-9 feet away from the TV.

Later when I upgrade to the 6010, I will be sure to wall mount which will bring it back a good foot or so. I am so stoked with these new Kuros!

Ahh.....Panasonic and Samsung are top dawgs here. Before Kuro series we admired everything about them. Now that Kuro has come out everyone is making an exception that they are no where near Pioneer's level. LOL!!!
However, I respect your response though!!!

Come on guys keep them coming!

Things change and the worm has turned. Pioneer has hit a home run outta the park. Check your votes before you speak or did you mean to say "under dawgs"??
