Ok, I went plasma tv shopping. Looked at as many in my area as possible and it comes down to this. I can buy a factory refurbished Marantz PD4290D Digital Wide-screen Plasma. Apparently I can and will get a 4 year extended warranty on that. My other option is for a brand new Samsung 42" Flat-Screen 16:9 Plasma-Display Enhanced-Definition Digital TV Monitor

Model: SPL4225K

. Both will end up costing me close to the same amount of money ($3k). Both looked good to me at the time of viewing although I didn't get to see the refurbished Marantz, only a store model as I am ordering elsewhere. This tv will be my main tv however I don't do a lot of tv viewing so I will most likely use this for dvd watching nearly as much as for tv viewing. Also, I really need to know if satellite or digital cable really matter in reference to this. I realize I may get a few more channels with HD via satellite but I've been told cable companies will have more and more HD channels available as time goes on. Also the fact I'll be having a cable internet connection leaves me to believe I may get in on a package deal. I really will appreciate any comments on anyone who may have had a refurbished plasma. Reportedly the Marantz has been refurbished to the original specifications of the monitor and the fact that I can get the 4 years on it adds even more assurance that they do this process right.

I second radarblip. Give yourself a few minutes to read the reviews of the Panny 42" ED display and then go check it out. It's worth it...Spend the extra few hundred, order it online, and get anxious waiting for it to arrive.


Always better to have new and be assured your the original driver.


One caveat: word around here is that Pioneer makes a great set too. Looked good to me, but I was sold on the Panny.


While your at it, pick up an HD Tuner. Nothing like Jennifer Garner in high(er) res. And no, for those that remember the recent poll: she's not manly.
