So my Insignia NS-PDP50-09 went out last night. TV turns on, starts to receive the cable feed, then screen goes blank. 35 months old. Insignia says "Call geek squad for $150 and they will tell you what you need." I say "Tell geek squad to shove it and I'll buy a different TV."



So here is what I am looking at right now:


Phillips LCD 55PFL5705D/F7 - 55', Wifi, 1080p, 240 Hz


or


Samsung Plasma PN51D550C1 - 51" , 3D, 1080p, 60 Hz


Any suggestions/comments.


Any other ones I should look at? Want to spend less then $1,500 out the door.


Thanks,


Bill

i just picked up a samsung PN51D490A1 3d plasma from BB for about half of what you want to spend. i have a panasonic 42g25 plasma that i just moved to a bedroom and this samsung has a better overall picture then the panasonic in my opinion and the 3D is just a plus. for a 51 inch plasma you can't beat it in my opinion. good luck

thanks. Do you think the $199 for the Geek Squad Calibration is worth it. I live in a smaller town and dont think there is an independent calibrator.
Stay away from Best Buy calibration if you can. Check the display calibration forum sticky to find a calibrator in your area. You will pay more than $199 most likely but will almost certainly get a superior result.

i agree stay away from the BB cali. plus you can check the official thread for settings on this forum and get a great pic with those settings posted. i used some posted and the pic is very good after the setting posted (specially after changing the white balance settings) i used. good luck

If you're dying to part with an extra $200, you would be better off investing it in a better TV model than you would calibrating a sh**ty one.
