You get all the bells and whistles plus leading edge chipsets/panels including 1080p.
You also get bragging right that is not included in lower class PJ.
Or you move to higher models such Sims and Maranthz for considerably more money with even better refinements but probably less return/dollar. Those who get them feel the premium is well justified to their eyes. To some the difference is enough to make a watching a bore or joy.
Some differences are valued more by some it is really a matter of what you value in performance, quality and features.
