Hi all,

I'm considering buying a Panasonic PT-40LC12. I can get 1 for $2299. I'm also considering a Gateway (Sampo) plasma at $2999. I know the Panny can display HD while the Gateway is only 480P. Which is the smarter buy in terms of performance, reliability, etc... I don't need to impress anyone. Just want a great picture.

Thanks

Oh, also the LCD is really an RPTV... RPTV pictures are clearly inferior to plasma imo. Go with the panny plasma... No one's been disappointed yet.

The Panasonic TH-42PWD5UY is now available from Lisa at www.plasmaextreme.us for $3600 including shipping. I got mine from her about month or two ago and I love it!! Great deal, great service, great display. BTW, I'll second Felgar in saying that plasmas look much nicer than LCD RPTVs. Good Luck!!

I too fully endorse the Panny PWD route but just to clarify, this plasma too is 480p only (it is not HD resolution even if the PQ is excellent), same as the gateway.
