So I currently have a 42" Panasonic 720p plasma (the X1 series). Purchased in 2009. Have never had a problem and still love it. With all the major players giving up on plasma *cries* I would really like to upgrade to a 60" before prices start to skyrocket and maybe relegate this one to the bedroom. Smart is not needed because we have an Apple TV and 3D, while potentially cool, isn't a necessity either. I basically just want the best value for picture quality. If it is also Smart or 3D that's just a bonus. Because of my limited budget it seems my best bet is an LG60PB6900 or the 6650. Does anyone have any experience with these sets or have a different suggestion? Trying to keep it under $800.

Is Panasonic out of the Plasma market? I hadn't thought about it, but maybe I should get a better/newer one now for the same reasons.

Hello: I have my Pioneer KRP600M plasma monitor for sale in the classifieds. It is truly reference grade. Unfortunately, I can't sell it for $800, but I might be persuaded to make you a deal and give a healthy discount off my asking price. Check it out if you're interested. Thanks!
