samsung hpt5054 720p plasma tv. sure its not 1080p but i wasn't looking for that since i doubt it will ever get a 1080p source hooked up to it. its for my dad, he has been wanting me to keep an eye out for a tv for him.
i was about to go with a 42" panny plasma but this was just a better deal.
799?? damn! you sure it was a 50" for that price? if so i missed out.
oh hey grant, i had the option of doing in store pickup but they were sold out. it doesnt matter too much for me since i wont get a chance to go to my parents house till the weekend to mount it and set it up for them.
Or, you can go with a nice and newer 40" Samsung 1080p LCD with 3 hdmi's and etc, it's a pretty nice TV and 40"/42" is literally no difference to me. I would just go with the better pic, which I think the Samsung has.
The first link is a little better, but both are pretty good for the price point. They both have 3hdmi's which is nice. I would ask them for this PLU first 5178566 - If they're out of that one, the other is 5178656
it was not a problem to bring money to his house at 10pm.so why is it a problem to call and bitch.it wasnt a problem when we were all sitting around smoking pot together.yes i said it we all were smoking pot together.what now stupid.
the new setup is the samsung hpt5054 50" 720p plasma
techcraft swp60 stand in cherry.
all the old audio stuff was mine. i took all that with me when i hooked their new stuff. to replace the missing audio presence i picked up an onkyo htsp904 htib from shoponko.com for a pretty good deal. its a decent receiver. the speakers look great and actually sound pretty nice. they dont want speaker cables running around anymore so their setup is only 3.1.

since im here at my parents house all day watching golf, here is my review of the tv.
first off i think it was a good price for a nice tv and no problems during shipping.
once it was delivered i hooked it up to the tune of HD theater all weekend because they say plasmas are most susceptible to burn in the the first 100 hours of use and i wanted to know if the tv was going to have any problems. everything checked out.
the unit looks aesthetically beautiful. i have to say plasma is nice. great deep and rich colors. very dark blacks. i noticed a lot of digital artifacts at first, a little time tuning it and no problems.
i dont see get any so called screen door effect but i do see a glare. its not horrible. overall a solid tv.
