I'm in the beginning stages of looking into a Plasma for the bedroom. Time to upgrade the 13yr old 27" tube. I'd like to see the new Panasonic EDTVs and HDTVs and decide if it is worth spending the extra $1500 for the higher end model. Can anyone recommend a dealer to see both of these in Los Angeles County? Any opinions on whether the HDTV model is worth the extra money. I do not have HDTV right now. Only DirecTV and DVDs. I may consider getting HDTV sometime next year.
