Plasma's coming down...

I've been following the Panasonic plasma at BB & Amazon and finally today they reduced the price to $3199. @ BB, Amazon has it for $2699. + $149.S&H
That TV had been $4599. last year around Oct. then around x-mas it came down to $3999., this year after NY day it was on sale for $3699. ($3499. BF)
I'm not sure how much lower it will go (850u), but I think I better pull the trigger, hell the 800u is still $2999. this is for the 58inch.

They also have no payment no interest for 3 yrs.

Its better to ask forgiveness than permission though, right?

Hell yeah it's better to ask for forgiveness then permission. Hell I just told her and she told me to go and get it!
Even if goes cheaper, they will have to give you the difference +10% within 30 day's! I was really going to wait until after the Superbowl or even after the Feb 9th digital conversion date but, I don't think it will be much cheaper than this until next year.
Like I said the 800u is still the same price right now and it is last years model.

I bought the 750U (65" plasma) late last year in an eBay auction for $2200. BJ auctions look damned sweet in HD. It is a big set. The wife thinks its big enough where I should scrub the plans for the projector and media room.

it is big too - that 3" bezel on four sides adds to its overall size. It weights almost 200 lbs and has some SERIOUS bass response. I still havent figured out where all that sound is coming from. I plan to wall mount it after I get all my cabling run

Tell her while she is sleeping, or say you got it for her.

Cool

Well I went ahead and bought it, it was $3199. It would have fit in my car, but I'm not supposed to lay it down so I'm picking it up tomorrow. The thing is huge, last years model is still $2999. and then this one went on sale. And I doubt it will go down too much more the rest of this year, plus I couldn't beat no interest/no payment for 3 years. UFC this Sat. and the Superbowl on Sunday, I'm pumped!

Now you need to make sure your receiver and Blu Ray player are new enough to support all the new shit that is out! (I think it is hdmi 1.3 or something)

Yeah I had to walk out of the store yesterday, they were trying to load me up with a new Harmon Kardon SS unit and a new blu-ray player, I told them bitches I'd be right back and I exited stage left. I already have the HD box from DirectTV, I'm gonna go HDMI on that and then run the sound through my HK unit I have now until I buy a new HK-AVR354 HD reciever. I already have a Sony blu-ray and a PS3, that should hold me over until the blu-ray players come down in price.

If your receiver will take HDMI inputs for multiple devicdes, use the Blu Ray player connected via HDMI to the receiver. That way you can get the Dolby HD and DTS HD sound, otherwise optical and digital coax will not provide the bandwidth to send the receiver those signals.

I used to never hook anyuthing but sound directly to my receiver, but on the new one, I hook DirecTv, and Blu Ray to it via HDMI, Wii via compnent video cables and let the receiver handle it all. One hdmi out cable to the TV and the receiver handles the greatness of pure HD sound it is handed, and I never have to change inputs on the TV, just set the receiver to whatever I want to watch/listen too adn the TV just does it's job.

Well worth the extra $ I spent on the Yamaha upgrade, even tho the older one I had worked great, just did not support the new HDMI stuff.

Do it Henry, go back and get it! You won't regret it...

Holy shit this is a badass television set, It's better then my 37inch and bigger. Of course the 37 is lcd and the 58 is a plasma but both are Panasonics, I have yet to watch a blu-ray but I'm sure it will be awsome. I watched the Boy's vs the skins from week twelve that I saved on the DTV HD DVR and it was lovely. Ever since I bought the HD DVR's all I watch is chanels on HD, the Smithsonian is kickass! I really wanted the 65in but this is plenty big, just perfect in my family room (21x18)

LOL, I had to go download an episode of MANswers from Spike On Demand. Hard to get a good quality screen capture on pause, a little on the fuzzy side, compared to watching it.
