    Ok, I am very, very new to the HDTV world so forgive me if this a dumb question. But I want to demote my Sony 40" Wega XBR (Sony KV40XBR800 ) to the living room upstairs, and get a 50" widescreen as a replacement for the Home Theater Room.

    I was looking around engadgets.com the other day and in their "How To: Blow Out the superbowl section," (can't post direct link, but it's entry 7313211442242854) they recommend a 50" Onyx Line TV - TH-50XVS30U. But then a reader posts in the forum underneath, "Why don't you recommend the Panasonic TH-50PHD7UY instead?" and then lists a few reasons.

    I've looked at some random sites giving first looks/reviews into both TVs but am not familiar enough with the techno language to figure out why this Onyx line is so much better than the TH-50PHD7UY, that the price difference would be $9,000 versus $3,700. (If prices have changed, please let me know).

    I kind of have my heart set on a panasonic as I've seen some good things mentioned about it in one of the threads here (cant remember the name of it - a guy was asking between 4 tvs). I was just curious about this.
