Is this a a decent deal? Samsung 50inch plasma?
 
Samsung PN50A400 Plasma

here are the specs

http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/d...PN50A400C2DXZA

for black friday sale $798

Wondering if it worth it to get?


I know nothing about TV's and I have an old crappy 27 inch tv, been looking to upgrade for a while

or should i look for something better?

that is if i can even get one?

only thing i was not sure was 720p vs 1080p

I don't know a great deal more than you, I'm still learning, but it doesn't sound bad. The price is right, the contrast ratio is good amd it seems to come with a good compliment of features. The one thing that I would want to know before buying it is it's response time. It seems notably absent from the specs.

EDIT: From what I have been told, I would wait for a buy that does give 1080i. I may be wrong, but I'm expecting some better prices aftter Christmas.

It's ok but understand that the set is a low end tv from samsung, I'm sure you could find better for the same price.

Just got a great panasonic for a dollar more...

can you recommend what to get?

i really am lost but need something that will play Wii and maybe Xbox360 in the future and look great for DVD, and HDTV

thanks

I really do not want to spend a ton of money more then $1000, if that is possible?

well walmart sold out of those all under 15 minutes

so went with this model looks to be a higher end one and ordered online from frys

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1202649424626

bestbuy selling it for $1399 but frys selling it for $899 and nice thing about frys no sales tax


customer reviews there overall seem to be good and i saw it in sears picture just blew me away for the price really could not go wrong

I just got mine yesterday and love it!

This thing is amazing!!!!

If i were spending $1400 I would have got the 1080p set you linked but since I got such a great deal and got it for $899 with no sales tax I just could not see spending twice that just for 1080p, especially since I really do not see getting a blu ray or ps3 in near future anytime soon though I guess that can change


from what i understand 1080p is not that huge of a difference unless you are sitting at the right optimal viewing difference if i understand correctly? to spend $1000 more for a little bit more detail, i just cannot see it
