  1. OLED Technology and Flat Panels General
    I am new to the forums here, so I apologize if this question has been answered previously or if I am doing this wrong. I have a Samsung PN51D7000 Plasma Display that I have had for about 5 years now. I really like the TV, but I pre-ordered the Xbox One X, and have been wanting to get into 4K...
  2. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    1. For a Viera TV (in particular the P50ST50), when watching videos* through the web browser, is there a way to do it full-screen? There's always the navigation bar there. 2. In the web browser, most videos need Adobe Flash, which won't download/install on the TV. Has anyone found a...
  3. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    Had the day off from work and decided to see what deals the local stores had on TVs. Well I really only have 3 options BB, Costco and Sears. To my surprise BB had not one plasma and to make things worse the dude in the blue shirt told me "they" stopped making plasmas in 2013 (because they are...

    I'm getting an oscillating hum from my Adcom amps whenever I turn on my Panasonic plasma tv. The hum isn't coming through the speakers, but from the amps themselves. I turn on the tv and the amps hum, I turn the tv off and the hum from the amps disappears. I'm stumped. The amps and the tv are...

  8. Community News & Polls
     Despite the recent news that Panasonic might halt research and development of plasma technology—and the fact that plasma TVs represent only about 10 percent of the flat-panel market—this remains the perennial question for all TV shoppers. Both types of flat panels have their pros and cons, so...

    *hand up Three game series between the Jays and the Redsox = MAJOR IR. I'm trying to forget about the 13-0 loss yet my panel is not letting me. I've got both logos and both city names seriously embedded right now. Panasonic 65" VT50...
  10. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Just wondering if there is any way to get into a projector setup that competes with plasma image quality for around the same price as a 65" panny plasma (VT60)? I have been planning all along on getting a new VT60 when they are available in April, but recently have realized that a projector...

  12. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    I've been wondering this for a while. Say you have two or three televisions you're looking at purchasing, they're all the same kind so for this example we'll just pretend all are LCD/LED televisions. 1080p, 120hz TVs. Now. What would separate them and/or justify the difference in cost if...
  13. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    I am thinking about getting this TV soon, but there is one item of information that I can't find anywhere. Annoyingly, not even on Samsung's site. The plasma has 1 USB port, but I'm not sure which video formats it reads. I know MKV is an uncommon one, but it's the one I'd like to use...

    Anyone have experience with these sets and which may be better or any issues with either? Or just an overall opinion on either? Panasonic one is about 150 dollars cheaper...just curious. Both are at Sams Club.

    So I am from north of the border. Here the Panny Plasma at a specific size is far a few in between. As such their prices are horrible. So I am down to the 55" HX850 for $1.8k vs the 55" GT50 for $1.85k. I did try to demo, but again, finding a store that has both units of any size at all, and...

    So I'm about to buy a tv and want a 60-65 inch one. All of this reading in here has made me paranoid to buy a plasma. I watch ESPN a lot and my son watches loads of kid shows, and we all in the house do play Xbox regulary. This plasma seems like a lot of maintenance. I want to buy a tv and take...

    Just moved and it is time to upgrade my TV and I want to go with the Panasonic 65" - however I have a use for the ole Pioneer 50" in a new location...what am I missing out on besides spending an extra 1500 on the upcoming ZT, having everything installed and fished through the walls so it would...

    Bought the Panasonic P50UT50 plasma for $699 since price was too hard to pass up on 1/20 but still sitting in the box as I've been wishy-washy on whether or not plasma is right for me. This is replacing a 2006 Sony RPTV that I've been looking to get rid of and now seems like a good time due...
  20. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Seems Vizio, Samsung, and Sharp all have a TV in this range. Has there been any consensus on the best of the bunch?
