My co-worker is ready to pull the plug and buy a 42"Plasma after seeing my Two 42" Panny's in action. Problem is we can't seem to find such a good deal as I found @ Compusa back in early December. (I got them both @ $1,150 ea) He has his eye on a Toshiba for $1,399 @ BB and a Phillips @ $1,100 @ Office Depot. We did some review comparing @ work on our lunch break and it seems the Panny is better. Some people are saying wait until after the SuperBowl. Do you guys think it would be best to wait a few weeks? or maybe know of a good deal? I worried he is going to jump the gun and regret it.

Well, if he buys it from a brick and mortar store, there is typically a 30 day price match policy...so there is a little insurance there as long as he keeps his eye on prices. But...if he is looking at a panasonic, he should really check out some of our forum sponsors....he can get a great price there.

I would definitely order online if he is looking for the best deal. Try a place called Pac-2000, I got a smokin' deal on my Panny there.

Can't speak for the Toshiba, but if the Philips model is the 9631 he's making a solid choice. Philips and Panasonic were my top 2 choices when I bought in September.


No price cuts appear near-term but you never know. If he likes either model, go for it. Though if he really wants Panasonic $200 either way shouldn't sway him.

Best Buy has a 60-day price guarantee right now; I just bought a 50" Maxent for $1451 ($1649 - 12% w/coupon) and am loving it. Still working on the break-in and will calibrate it after break-in is complete. I think the 42" Maxents are around $1k, which is a spectacular deal, and they look great.*



*Note/disclaimer: I'm not a fanatic nitpicker. I watch a fair amount of TV/DVD from a distance of about 12 feet. I don't obsess about the image, but I do appreciate a good image, which the Maxent delivers just fine.
