I am thinking of buying a 50 inch plasma tv. Could you please give me the pros and cons; e.g. I heard that one should get an extended warranty but that this costs a fortune. how about picture quality. If I were to spend close to $10,000 I'd want to have something that is great and will last for several years (technololically). Thanks. These HT forums are interesting, useful and absorbing. I am glad to be a part.
