Thoughts? I'm a bit concerned about the rumors I've heard about the Samsung screen issues. :scratch:
Because I don't need the screen until our new place is built in March/April this coming year I suspect I can wait for 5-6 months to let prices drop/stabilize a bit where the VT30 $ = Sami $. Unless I see a fantastic deal online during black friday/cyber Monday. raying:I have to agree with this suggestion for the D7000. As long as internet, bells and whistles are not a priority, the 7000 is a very good choice. If cost had not been an issue, the VT would have been my first choice.
As far as problems on the D8000, I have had none, so far and am very pleased.
That was the price spread at Mangolia A/V. They can't keep the Pani's in stock so they see no need to reduce the price. Frys was a bit less @ $500-$600.Accurate observations. ^^ However, I don't see the price spread as much as $1k, maybe it's just the way that particular retailer prices the TVs.
I completely agree. The D7 is a great deal, but if your budget allows, go for the VT30. I think it'll be better at handling glare and black levels in rooms you can't keep dark.I still favor Panasonic's VT30, because of the new Louver filter they integrated this year that helps maintain the panels brightness and deep black level in high ambient light conditions.
The D7000 is a great TV and if your budget is limited I would suggest the D7000 over any other TV in its price range.
