I've narrowed my display possibilities to two, but can't seem to make up my mind. Was leaning heavily on the Panasonic 800U, but it doesn't look nearly as good as I expected it to on the store floor. Very dark picture. And not as much detail as I wanted to see. Not even compared to it's younger sister, the 85U. Plus, from a specs standpoint, the same resolution can be had for a little more money, but in the larger 58" Samsung. Would you mind telling me which set you would prefer and any special reason why? BTW, my room is 20wx16d and I'll be viewing from 11 or more feet. Thank you for your help. Samsung PN58A550 ($2599) – A considerable step up from a 50". It was the highest rated set in its class by Consumer Reports. 30,000:1 native contrast. 1,000,000:1 dynamic. Three HDMI inputs. Panasonic TH-50PZ800U ($1905) – THX certified. Pre-calibrated. CNET Editor's Choice (May 2008). Consistently one of the highest rated plasmas of any class. Perhaps, second only to the Pioneer KURO. Although it did fail CNET's test for 1080i film resolution. 30,000:1 native contrast. 1,000,000:1 dynamic. Four HDMI inputs.
