I'm affraid I've been caught in that trap now after reading all the 'potential' improvements that may be coming with the new models and I'm going to wait. Plus, that new 54" size has really caught my interest

If you are on a tight budget, I think you should wait especially if you are interested in online contents on your TV (without a HTPC). According to D-nice and others (on the Panasonic CES thread), those new PDP will have quite a bit of improvement over the current generations while price should be staying the same or very competitive. But if you are considering Pioneer's high-end stuff, then I probably won't wait since they didn't even announce anything new for PDP.

I think this is a dumb poll until you know what the 2009 prices are.

Honestly, this stuff will literally drive you out of your mind. For me, there's so many reputable online dealers now offering great deals from time to time that it's just a matter of waiting for one and jumping on it.
And really, what's a few hundered dollars on a tv you'll likely have for a 3-4+ years anyway? Do an exhaustive search and you'll do fine right now.

A couple of the big reasons I'm waiting is the fact that the power consumption is lower, display is thinner, blacks are darker and there is finally a 54" set available for plasmas. So I'll hold out unitl next sept to let prices level.

on XBR6, keep eye on Amazon. They had a deal over the weekend and for awhile a couple weeks ago on it(40, 46 or 52") plus a Sony BR player.
I figured it up, after selling the BR player for net or $275, one of the deals would've got the 52" XBR for around 2200 shipped.
CC has it for 3400 right now.
