If you were getting a new set but were limited to around $4k, which would you choose?
That would depend highly on the type of monitor you were looking for (e.g., DLP, plasma, etc.) and what your primary use for it was (e.g., movies, games, tv, etc.).
Sorry, but that's not an easy question to answer unless we know what your intended use for it is
Plus what size you're talking about.
I don't think it really matters what you plan on watching the most, you should just get a monitor that is up to par with technology. This will enable you to enjoy all content for years to come.
Personally, I am not a big fan of DLP's. They are pretty good for their price but I think both plasmas and LCD's are visually more impressive. Panasonic plasmas are really nice and I was impressed with a pioneer elite too but neither are capable of displaying 1080p which is the most beautiful HD resolution we will see for some time. I read both manufacturers are making 1080p sets but will be very expensive, well beyond 4k.
I'd go with LCD, specifically the Sony Bravia XBR2. Sharp Aquos is coming out with a new set too in a month or so that's worth checking out as is the 96 series Samsung.
I would probably keep saving my money till the Panasonic 1080P plasmas are released in this country around the end of the year, and get the 58 inch.
Those won't be near 4k.
I saw a Pioneer Elite Plasma 1080p that was 10k.
Actually, the projected MSRP for the 58 inch Panasonic 1080P plasma is ~$5,400.
That would be very cool if it turns out to be true.
I must have been thinking about the 50 inch. The projected MSRPs for the 1080P Panasonic plasmas are as follows:
TH-103PZ 600.. $69,999
Looks like the 65 inch is a relative bargain
anybody hear anything about Mitsubishi 65" 1080P DLP HDTV... i saw it on costco website but of course they didnt have it in the store or Panasonic
Professional Series (TH-65PHD8UK ) 65" HDTV Plasma Monitor
Those prices look more like what I would have expected them to be!
I'll take the TH-103PZ 600 thank you very much.
A year from now, the TH58PZ600 should be streating for about $6,000. And the shipping on the 103 should also be about $6,000
Save another few hundred and buy:
NEX PX-60XR5A (December Release)
Or stick to your budget and get the 58PX60U.
How about no set and instead a projector. No way would I go back to a set unless it was small and for bedroom use.
Na, I'd go with the 103 incher.
If I didn't know better I'd think you were teasing me
