I can get either the SAM PN59D530 and PAN TCP60S30 new for about the same price but I can get the PAN TCP55GT30 open box for a couple hundred more. Should I go with the D530 or the S30? Is the GT worth the extra $200 even if it's OB? If not, how much less should I try for to make it worth it? Or, should I just be waiting for a better deal all together?

I would opt for the GT as it will be vastly superior to either of those sets. But as it's a display I would check it for IR or any of the common Panasonic issues such as fbr or green blobs.

If black level is a priority: S30. But understand that with the issues I'm currently experiencing with the Panasonic line I'm not sure I would recommend them to anyone.


You seem to be a bit scattershot here... You want a display and you're comparing two barrel scrapers, a nice mid-range set and now an expensive boutique brand? Did I miss something?

Haha! Yes, definitely scattershot, so my apologies for that and my thanks for the help. I'm the type that wants boutique brands for bottom barrel prices. The prices for the 4 sets are all within a couple hundred dollars. I just need someone to tell me to stop being cheap and spend the extra $200 on one of the better models because the picture quality is worth it. It sounds like you'd think I should go for the GT or the NuVision.
