I need to purchase 4 TV's in the 42"-46" range and my budget is around $1000. I've been trying to determine what's best plasma tv in this price range, I'm considering a Panasonic 42PZ85U. I would appreciate any thoughts.

After looking online, offline, and all over, I figured the total cost was well worth it (tv shipped w/ white glove for under 1k) and 4 year in house warranty was only a little over $100 additional- I knew I wanted a PS3 as my blu-ray and gaming system so waiting for a B&M or online deal where they through in a cheap blu-ray didn't appeal so much, also I don't need a stand and my car is too tiny for self delivery, so shipping was a consideration too.
If you don't need a standard VGA PC input, get the 42pz80u and save a few more bucks, BUT depending on where you buy, this might not come with free shipping, so after tacking on around $200 for white-glove delivery, you're spending more than you would have for the 42pz85u w/ warranty.
Good luck! Great TV's all around, I'm so excited.
