Our living room is 15 x 20, so we would be sitting about 14-15ft back from the LCD/Plasma. I need to decide how big I want to go, but currently thinking something around 50" +or- 3dB.

Running all the wires and connections is not going to be fun.

This is my 2 cents on this topic. As I am building an HT room, I have been researching a lot of TV's LCD & Plasma. One salesman whom is a friend told me that if I was buying an LCD TV, look at the 3 "S" brands, as they are the best (Sony,Samsung,Sharp) for LCD. If looking at Plasma, look at the Panasonic, Pioneer, and Samsung, as Samsung has made some recent advances.

I personally own a Hitachi 42" Ultravision Plasma (2 years old), and even though the blacks were not rated the best, and it had some other quirks, noted by the reviewers, I have had no problems with this TV and the picture quality is great.

Reviews are good to rule out inferior brands, as reviews are very critical, but it always comes down to your perception on the picture quality.

Hope I have not muddied the water's even more.

I'm just worried about warranty situations, buying local gives me a place I can call, how do you handle online vendors?

That looks like a great deal. The set comes with the manufacturers warranty, and if you choose to you can extend the warranty. I purchase online to save on cost and taxes, I haven't bought any of my TV's through retail stores.

Anything warranty wise after the return period you would probably be dealing with Panasonic and the local repair place anyway.

So it's a one day sale only and includes free shipping? Still seems good to me. I had my Panny Plasma shipped to me and no problems yet either.

Hey guys, commenting on warranties, I don't know if any of you have heard of Squaretrade but I buy a lot of stuff on eBay and have purchased a couple warranties through them and they are far cheaper. You can purchase warranties through them with online and in-store purchases, it's definitely worth checking out.
