Panasonic 50" Plasma

I am gradually getting in the market for a 16:9 large TV. I was making rounds in the stores this weekend and the Panasonic 50" plasma appears to be a nice set at a reasonable price. Does anyone have one and, comments?
I have had a 42" Panasonic for a couple of years, and it is great, and was not too expensive. At the moment it appears that Panasonic leads the pack.
I am not sure of the model you looked at but I prefered the Samsung p5031. Whatever model you buy be sure to check out very nice prices and fast shipping. I ordered my tv on Tuesday and had it on Thursday.
Look for twin HDMI inputs, as you'll need them soon for hi-def cable box and hi-def dvd.
I have a Panasonic 42" complaints.
Lots of panny discussion on avsforum. I preferred Philips for my 50" plasma but lots of folks seem to really enjoy the panasonic.
I own a Samsung sp-p4251 plasma and a Samsung hlp5685 dlp. I know the plasma is a enhanced version. Our family tends to watch the dlp more I personaly like the piture on the dlp better we are hooked up to HD cable on both. In my quest for a plasma to me the one that was the referance to all plasma`s is the Pionier Elite if you can swing the price of that one you will have the best David
I think the typical PQ hierarchy puts Fujitsu at the top, Pioneer Elite next, with Panasonic and commercial Pio's as PQ for $ leaders. The Fuji and Pio Elites are in the cost-no-object camp. I had an 42" ED Panny plasma and liked it a lot. I'd second Mainiac's rec to visit's plasma forum--lots of good tech info and their sponsors typically provide some additional discounting if you go non-brick and mortar.
Plasma over DLP. AS far as brands, Fujitsu uses the same glass as panasonic( meaning the embedded pixel structure as well) but uses a better de-interlacing chipset for instance. However, if you have a great DVD player, this is a moot point. AS far as comparing Pio Elite to a Panny, the "best choice" depends on your viewing environment. In rooms with Ambient light, the Pio Elite is an excellent choice. If you watch TV/Movies in the dark, then the black levels on the Panny make it the better choice as more detail is resolved in darker scenes, assuming correctly adjusted settings.
For the money Panasonic gets the highest ratings.
