I want to keep my cost at a minimum. I was thinking this or the Panasonic comparable model. This is already more than I am wanting to spend, so I don't want recommendations on even more expensive models.

If you are set on a 1080p plasma (I agree 720p may be an option, too). I would think about a Panasonic TC-P50S1, and getting BB to PM an online price, if you need to purchase from them. There is also a rebate from Panny up to $200 on certain bluray players purchased with this TV.

Note: The rebate is not valid at Best Buy or Sears. I just noticed this.

The August 9 Best Buy circular (this upcoming Sunday's ad) will feature the Panasonic TC-P50S1 for $1199. That's still more than you would pay for it online, but it matches their current PN50B550 price. I've been waffling between these two models and I'm leaning toward the S1.

If you want a New 1080p 50 inch plasma, and price is the issue and you only want to by from BB, then that is your only choice. Only 3 players left in the Plasma game, Samsumg, Panasonic and LG; LG does have a model 50PS60 that I have seen for as low as $1099, but BB doesn't list that model.

I just went with the Panny TC-p50s1 after lurking on these boards for the last few weeks.


The previous poster is correct: Today's (Sunday 8/9/09) Best Buy Circular features the lowest price I've seen on that particular model. Even the (surprisingly) well informed salesperson was quite shocked when I showed him today's flier last night. Their extended warranty is $100 less than the extended warranty offered by Amazon and is one (1) year longer (4 years).


I also considered the free delivery and "recycle" of my old set, a big, heavy, "lemon" of a 62" Mitsubishi DLP.


If there are any problems, I can go to BestBuy in person and talk to a human being being.

I would stop in the BB you bought the 50" S1 from each week during the next 30 days. A few weeks back we had it for $999.99, so if it comes down again get your price match. Panasonic has been pushing their prices down near cost pretty often.

I think they have 18 month no interest financing so it shouldn't cost tha much a month, but you just have to make sure to pay it off completely by the 18 months.
