I've just finished up my new house where I had all the infrastructure installed to support large screen plasma (50"+). I have jacks, power and a DVI cable installed in the wall so I can hang my tv. I have a whole house audio system which uses Sonance speakers and I have digital volume controls etc...


The only problem I have is WHAT TV!!!?


I am interested in the Pioneer 50" but I see there is a lot on this site about the Panasonics.


I have a budget of $7,000k-ishhh.


So, I pose to you the question... what would you do?


Thx!

I suppose I should elaborate...


My room is a living room that is open to the breakfast and kitchen area. I'd say the couch would be roughly 10' from the plasma but it can also be viewed from the kitchen area as well which is 20' away.


I have two large banks of 7' tall windows in the living area and another bank in the breakfast area. This results in a very bright room although I will have drapes covering them somewhat during the day.


I like the Pioneer units I've seen at various stores but as bright as my room is, I am concerned that the image will be washed out.


Is a Panasonic 7th gen the way to go?

1. Start reading/researching. AVS is an excellent place to start.

2. Go out and demo the popular brands.

3. Ask questions and select "the one".

4. Buy TV.

5. Enjoy TV.

6. Post review here.


Have fun.

Bright room is not a major problem. Glare is.

Dimensions for your room is similar to mine. I find that my Panny 50 is a bit small from 20'. I loved the Fuji 55", but it was way more than what I wanted to spend.

If it's not too late, I'd put in another DVI, 1 or 2 component, and a VGA cable in your wall just in case.

I have a RX-V2400 Yamaha receiver coupled with a Yahama DVD-C940 dvd changer.


I have a Sonance Virtuoso in wall speaker system for surround.


I like the design 'looks' of the Sonys and the picture quality looks good but I'm still learning.
