I'm looking for a home theater set-up for a 50-60" tv. I can get a great deal on a Runco CX HD or CX Opal. The only caveat is that they're 3" thick, and don't have all the latest technology. On the plus side: The picture is fantastic.

Not sure how to do a poll, but just curious what others think. Is it worth it getting the most up-to-date set, with all the bells and whistles, or is picture quality what it's all about?

Hello,
Panasonic's 2012 Viera Plasma's are simply fantastic and happen to represent a stunning value. The Panasonic TC-65VT50 won the Value Electronics Shootout beating the far more expensive Sharp Elite Panel.

Here is a link to the Shootout Thread:http://www.hometheatershack.com/for...rs/57048-8th-annual-flat-panel-shoot-out.html
The VT, GT and ST Series have garnered universal acclaim and while I adore Runco, I find it hard to advocate anything else.
Cheers,
JJ

Thanks everyone! As per your recommendations, I'll be looking into new Panasonics rather than NOS Runco. I'm sure I'll still save money and get a more updated product to boot. :dancebanana:

Panasonic's 2012 Viera Plasmas are great for your options. It is simply fantastic and can represent a good value for money. I think the Panasonic TC-65VT50 is now on sale on Amazon and it can beat the far more expensive Sharp Elite Panel. Check prices with Ebay too.
