I've been looking at the Panasonic PT-52LCX65 and the PT-50LCX65. I like the plasma's, but I think you get more size with the rear projection, for the money. Plus, I'm not too concerned with hanging the tv on the wall. Any comments?

do you honestly think THAT is the only difference in picture quality between the 2 sets? i have seen both of these sets numerous times at cc and IMHO the panny plasma picture blows away the lcd's.....glass or plastic screen notwithstanding. don't get me wrong, i certainly understand anyone choosing an lcd rptv over a plasma due to budget restrictions.
Not saying that Plasma pic is not better but it is not that much better. The rp LCD has a very good pic and excellent features. For more than half the price I think it is a much better buy especially with the technology changing so rapidly. Why spend close to $2K more when there will be a better TV on the market in less than 2 years.
Which panny plasmas are you reffering to? The ones ive seen are the 50's not the 500's, the 50's dont look near as sharp as any other TV on the floor... Samsung, LG, Pioneer(duh), any of the above look much sharper... The color saturation and black levels are alright, and somewhat better than the others...
I would go with a sony LCD RPT anyday over panny cause of SDE... and i think panny looks blue...
