I have not shopped for a plasma, but Panasonic plasmas have gotten good reviews. I prefer LCD, especially those with LED backlight, because they don't weigh as much - easier to hang on the wall.

Hello,
LCD's have come a long way. However, the only LCD's that impress me are those with full LED Backlighting (full array) with Local Dimming. Unfortunately, these are by far the most expensive. I honestly prefer CCFL Backlighting to Edge LED Backlighting due to uniformity issues with Edge LED's.

If on a budget, I truly do think Plasmas are where its at. Best Buy has an outstanding deal on the Panasonic TC-P50UT50 which is bundles with a free 250gb Xbox 360 for $899. This is a 50 inch Plasma with 3D and even offers Viera Link and you can easily sell the Xbox to offset the purchase price of the TV.
Cheers,
JJ

I can vouch for Panasonic plasmas, especially the 2012 models. I bought an ST50 model and it is amazing. The UT is one level down but I've still seen some pretty good reviews for it.

Ok just talked wifey into a 50 inch wow ok game on !!!!
If you can purchase it today, Best Buy has a killer deal on the Panasonic TC-P50UT50 for $849 and comes with a free 250gb Xbox 360. This is the more expensive Xbox model and you can easily sell it to offset the price. Also, the UT50 just needs the optional WiFi Dongle and you are all set for WiFi. Only the VT/GT/ST Models come with WiFi out of the box.
