Great thread. Finally finished scimming through the all of it. I'm tired of waiting for our 27" Sony CRT TV in the bedroom to die. So I'm moving the 40" Samsung Plasma I bought on craigslist a year ago, that is currently in the basement, into the bedroom. My main TV that is the living room upstairs will go downstairs. It is a 50" Samsung HPT5064 720p Plasma that I bought new from Amazon just over 7 years ago for $1,700. I love this TV, still looks great.
I am considering the PN64H5000 to replace it. I only have 2 main concerns. The first is the size, but overall it is only 10" wider than the old 50" and 3.2" taller, so shouldn't be a big deal. The other is the reflection, which a lot of people say have been exaggerated. But does anyone know how that would compare to my current HPT5064? About the same, or worse?
Back then I got the 720p for cost savings and the reviews back then said it would be hard to tell the difference. Now it's 7 years later and technology has improved. Can I expect a dramatic increase in PQ over the HPT5064?
I'm about ready to submit my Amazon order and would love to have the last Plasma made by Samsung.
Thanks for any and all feedback.
