    Hard to believe --> Panny 42" Plasma Sale at Dell

    I'm still not convinced Plasma is the way to go, but one thing seems nearly unanamous ... Panasonic Plasmas crush most of the competition, particularly in the < $4000 category.. Also, I read a great argument for EDTV Plasmas recently at avsforum. They made the argument that for 480P DVD & Std NTSC broadcast material, this specific unit presents a truly stunning PQ. This makes great sense for myself and everyone else who do not yet receive any HDTV feed. Also note that this unit will handle 1080i & 720p inputs via downconversion to 480P. It been noted that HDTV material also looks so good on this Panny plasma that the HDTV version is only a marginal qualitative improvement.

    Thought I would start a new thread on this to make sure those considering a Plasma get to see it.

    If you decide to get this TH-42PWD6UY, consider using this link:

    PAnasonic TH042PWD6UY

    Purchases through that link go to help support Home Theater Forum.

    BTW, today only (10/27/03, until 11pm CT), you can get an additional $25 off a $350+ purchase (this one qualifies), lowering the price down to $2671.36 shipped! Use coupon code: 10B97433AEFD for that discount.

    That 20% off coupon is good at Dell Small Business. Here's the link for that:

    Panasonic TH-42PWD6UY from Dell Small Business

    Though it does not have DVI, it does have a slot for input cards. They make an inexpensive DVI w/HDCP capable input card for this plasma display.

    I saw this deal on the Panny (at about $2400), and it makes me drool sooo hard. That is my upgrade path - after a couple years of watching, I am still too poor (I can barely afford gas). $2400 is seriously the best deal on the Panny 6UY, ever, so far.

    This is a great little set, for those that want a huge "kewl" factor or have limited space.

    I cant believe the price on plasmas is dropping so rapidly!

    Gabriel, thanks for the links / coupons!!

    regards

    Gregg

    Sure thing. If you're going to buy a 42" plasma, you might as well get the best, get it for $500+ less than anywhere else, and support HTF while you're doing it.

    BTW, if there's a mod/admin around, maybe we should change the title to Panny TH-42PWD6UY 42" ED plasma for under $2400 shipped? [​IMG]

    Gabriel,

    I just called Dell sales and they said the way to order this is via phone until midnight 10/30.

    Try John at Ext. 46212 and he would be able to help you. I did not order the display, but he was sure about being able to order it via telephone. Maybe your information is correct and the info he gave me was not.

    Either way, it's worth a shot if you truly want one of these.

    Regards,
    Charles
