We currently have a Toshiba 56" DLP rear projection 720p HDTV that we've been using for the last 5 years or so. We have come to the decision that the Toshiba, although still a high quality television, just can not compare to some of the high end Plasma's and LED tv's on the market right now. We have about $1500 to spend and after researching both Plasma and LED we have come to the decision that plasma is the way we want to go. We would like some suggestions from those in the know. We both wear glasses and have no interest in a 3D tv so the 3D technology is not something that we're interested in. We are very interested in the Panasonic 54" G25 plasma. The picture quality is incredible and at 54" it is about the size that we are looking for (55" to 58"). Unfortunatley, we've heard several horror stories about power failures and horrible customer service asociated with Panasonic Plasma's and I must admit that it has us frozen in our tracks. We definitely dont want to risk blowing this kind of money on a dud. Can anyone make a suggestion of a 1080p plasma tv that has a picture quality as good as the Panasonic G20/G25 series? We are looking at this tv purchase as a long-term investment and we plan on keeping this tv around for a while and want to get something that will still look as great 5 years from now as it does now. We mainly care about picture quality/brightness and overall durability and reliability, and we don't really care about things like number of HDMI inputs, or sound quality as we use a surround sound setup anyway. Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
