I especially like the sale offer.

List Price 6,999.99

Price 6,998.00

You save 1.99

My Next TV will probably be a 4K, but I've only had my Panasonic 65 inch VT50 for 11 months now. Hopefully, it'll still last a while. I've got a 4 year warranty on it that I paid extra for. So, I've got 3 years and 1 month of expect life left. Then it'll all blow up after the extended warranty expires.

This VT50 is not a perfect TV by any means. My eyes are real sensitive to motion problems and I've seen more motion problems with this TV than any I've used before. It's also a bigger screen than I've had before and maybe this amplifies the problems. If a 4K TV minimizes those problems, I'd be a buyer for sure.

But not for $7,000.00. Not for $6,000.00. Not for $5,000.00. Not sure about the rest.

Now, if only it came in super wide screen format, and was 9 or 10 feet wide, and it was acoustically transparent so I could mount in-cabinet speakers behind it, then I might give $10,000 to $12,000 for it. That is, if I could afford it at the time.

Huh. If you mouse over the 55-inch preview picture and the 65-inch preview picture, it looks like the only difference is that the 65-inch TV has smaller speakers and a smaller stand.

I'd go with the 55-inch model.

Peter, look at this one and the 65" model will seem reasonable.

There's only one in stock, so I'm going to buy it now before Adrian tries to.

Worthless. Not acoustically transparent.

However, if you play a Pearl Jam concert on it, it will be acoustically incoherent.
