Re: new tv for me!! help me decide!!
If you can get a good deal on a Pioneer or Pioneer Elite Kuro plasma, you will have a great HDTV. Even though Pioneer has stopped producing them, all warranties will be honored for as long as you own the set (not that anything is likely to go awry). The blacks and the gradations of grey to black are better then any other HDTV and this is what creates great contrast. A couple of the Panasonic plasma's are excellent too, although slightly below the excellence of Pioneer. If you have a very bright room you can also consider one of the very good Samsung LED LCD's, although in the larger screen sizes they are quite expensive compared to plasma's.
