which one would you get?
I'm debating on which of these 2 t.v's to get. One is a sony 52" lcd 1080p but does not have 120hz. The other is a vizio 47"lcd 1080p and 120hz. Its also $500 cheaper. Here are the links, any advice will be greatly appreciated guys:) I mostly watch sports and movies but also enjoy playing video games sometimes (sports).

Panny Plasma.

Bimmer33084 02-19-2009 12:17 PM

which panny? in that price range?

Bimmer33084 02-19-2009 12:29 PM

have you guys had any experience with this panny

only difference i see between the 2 is the contrast ratio. 30000:1 (85U) vs 20000:1 (80U) and reviews say that the 85u has some inaccurate primary colors.
Which one would you guys recommend?

I bought 42 inch 85u about a month ago and I am very pleased with it.

Man you guys are some Panasonic hoars.

Bimmer33084 02-19-2009 06:32 PM

^^ what would you recommend then? From what I've been reading online panasonic plasma's seem like the best bang for the price range i'm looking in. 800-1300

Samsung and Panasonics are prolly bang for buck the best, glock is right. But that is at a lower level.

There are much better higher end displays to be had for around 3-4k.

Now that I see your price range, Id suggest you go with their advice.

3k-4K is a lot to be paying for a tv below 50,52 inches.
I realize that there are many good tv's available....like the Pioneer Kuros and the Sony XBR8 Led.
I can recognize the difference in the quality but the difference is not worth 3k, 5k to me.
And tv's are changing so much now....in a few years I can see them all being LED and being a half inch thick.
I looked at a 46 inch Sony XBR6 for about 3 months but the cheapest I found it was 2099. It retailed for 2999.
The 42 inch Panny I bought cost me 998.
Was the Sony better...perhaps....was it 1011-2000 dollars better. No, not to me.

Don't worry about the inacurrate colors on the Panny tv. No tv is perfect but you can always calibrate them.

^^^ thanks for the link. I think i'm gonna go with the panny too. I agree with you I can't justify 3-4k on a t.v that's probably going to get outdated in a couple of years no matter how good it is now. My dad always spends 5k on a t.v that gets out dated in 2-3 years with something better. I'd rather spend 1-1.5k now and in two years put it in the guest room or another room and spend another 1-2k on a t.v that is better for me.

i just bought the 46" 85u for $1099 plus $75 for wall mount plus taxes. Debating on if I should get the 4 year warranty for $200. What do you guys think about extended warranty's?

kamaqazi 02-23-2009 09:19 PM

deff panny if your wanna shell out another 700 or so go pioneer pdp-5020fd $2000 shipped

howie 02-26-2009 01:54 AM

Sharp sucks
Panasonic good but expensive
Samsung & lg good bang for buck
Sony good but also expensive

Warranty is really up to u...I have warranty on all my tvs but I wouldn't recommend gettin simply bc you'll probly get another tv before this one breaks

ryanwhite74115 03-25-2009 09:14 AM

i always get them becasue I dont have a clue about fixing tv's and I know personally that paying someone to repair a thin-panel television is very expensive, sometimes more expensive than the television itself
