Narrowed it down to:

Panasonic TC-P50G10 (2009) model $1299 at Best Buy

Panasonic TC-P50S2 (2010) model $1299 at Best Buy

Samsung B650 (2009) model $1150 Online.



What's the best bang for the buck?

Or is there something better that I am missing in the $1300 range?

Don't get the S2... reports seem to indicate it's kind of poor PQ. G10 is good, but there's the concern over rising black level. B650 is also good, but Samsung you have long-term reliability concerns outside 1.5-2yrs and also strong tendency toward image retention. Right now there's tradeoffs regardless which one you get.

All things considered, I'd go with the B650... as long as you have the option to return it if it's a buzzer, that is. If not, wait. The G20/25 will be releasing for $1499 MSRP. If you don't want to bump up your budget that extra $200 wait for a sale. It will probably hit that price point somewhere in the next few months.
