I'm ready to pull the trigger on a 50" plasma. The Panasonic TH-50PX75U (1366 x 768) gets good reviews, but I'm concerned that a set with 1920 x 1080 might be a better choice. My tv habits are mostly broadcast cable and sports. Should I just dig a little deeper into the kids college funds and go for more pixels?

Up to you, but this TV will look great with hdtv, hi-def dvds, and even regular dvds. If you want to go 1080P, then some of the LCD flat panels would be the way to go, but with what you're going to be using the tv for, a 768P plasma will be fine. I have the previous generation 768P Panasonic 50" that I bought this past April on closeout, and it's been a great tv. I can't imagine you'll be disappointed.

Up to you really. If there is a huge price difference I'd just get the 720p model. Guarantee you'll be happy with it. Jeff

i just ordered the panny 77u 768p myself. I chose the 768 because i didnt see enough of a difference to justify the price difference between the 2. Also i read in many places that with 50" and under there isnt a huge difference in picture.

Don't discount contrast ratio, and color uniformity. There's more room for improvement on the 1080p plasma models. Panasonic is now on its 10th generation 720p plasma models, and they have done their R&D on the color/brightness side of things. If you buy a 1080p plasma set, you're getting a 1st or 2nd generation model, and the contrast ratio might not be up to snuff compared to a 720p model. True, the 1080p has more pixels, and looks "tighter" from up close (less screen door effect), but that means color uniformity is going to be harder to maintain, and is an ongoing target for improvement with the 1080p sets.

Joe: I would say for with your type of viewing that either the 750u or the 77u would be want to go for. My brother just picked up the 750u and he couldn't be happier with everything from standard cable and SD DVD to HD. If I had the money I would be getting the 750u without thinking about it.
