    Which brand & model would you buy if you wanted the biggest & the best plasma tv available? He's not interested in RPTV or Projection tv's. Please list brand & model number. THANKS

    The best turnkey solution is probably the Runco PlasmaWall PL-61c:
    http://www.runco.com/Products/Plasma/PL61cx.htm
    This being said, you can get near the performance for a LOT less with some of the otehr 61" screens, like the Fujitsu (nice scaler). Anyhow, here's a list:
    Samsung 63"
    Dreamvision 61"
    Fujitsu 61"
    Marantz 61"
    Nec 61"
    Runco 61"
    LG/Zenith 60

    My first choice would be the Runco hands down. But damn it's pricy. My second choice the Marantz. I sell Marantz plasmas and have been very impressed.

    BOTTOM LINE FUJITSU .... THEY MAKE PANELS FOR MOST MANUFACTURERS OUT THERE AND SELL 3 OF THE ABOVE MENTIONED BEST BLACKS OUT OF ALL IN THE FUJITSU.

    NEC makes the Plasma for Runco.

    NEC retails for 19 grand but can be had for a lot less.

    Pioneer Elite makes a 50"
