.. yes, good selection plus distance is good for 720p.

Picked up my PX80 @ Sears a few weeks ago for a steal. If your budget is $1K, go w/ the PX80 and don't look back. Do a search for the PX80 and you'll see a thread that shows my similar dialog, as well as some impressions that you might find interesting. For what it's worth, the TV seems to get better and better each day.

I don't think I can resist the PX80U deals at Sears this weekend ...

checked out both tonight, and for me I could see the difference between the two, but not much. But, I went with the 42pz80 since this is for my bedroom. From a farther distance you really can't tell much difference but since I have 720p sets already, I wanted to get a 1080p.

Unlikely you'll see PZ80 for less than $1200. Costco might get there with their FD18.
At 12', you might want to look at a larger display, not necessarily 1080. Panasonic has a 58" 720p set that's less than $2K, as does LG. In the end, though, it's hard to justify spending twice as much for just eight more inches.
Sears ran a promotion before Christmas that added the choice of (1) an additional 5% discount on Sears card versus (b) 12-month no-payment/interest financing. And Sears will usually give a discount if you buy it on a Sears card anyway.
Have read reports here that Panasonic is not currently shipping this model, but there are so many ads for it that I think that claim may be premature. Panasonic may not make any money on this display, but it will help keep their production lines going.
