Hey guys I'm looking at grabbing a plasma to replace my crusty old 32" LCD, our lounge room is rather large and we are about 2-3m away from the tv where our recliners are. So I'm thinking a 50-55" should work, Ideally id like a 55" but my budget may not allow it. I'm looking at spending $1200 or less, but if I have to bump it to $1300 or $1400 if it's really needed I might be able to convince the fuhrer (wife) Can anyone recommend a plasma that's got great picture quality in that price range , it will mainly be used for htpc and fta tv, some casual Xbox too. Not really interested in 3d but if it comes with 3d the wife might try it out, our receiver can do 3d. From what I've seen panasonic make the best plasmas followed by Samsung .
