Runco is the best I've seen to date regardless of size.

The Runco (which I own) is NOTHING more than an NEC MP42
on Runco steroids. Whoops, did I say steroids? I didn't mean that, well, not completely, I mean, ah, well..............
Yeah, thanks Ken C.!
I had the MP42 first, and went to the Runco JUST because it had the scaler. That makes it better, but pair a scaler (TAW, Faroudja NRS) with the NEC and they will be the same (or better), and heck, probably still substantially less!
I've been preparing for my plasma purchase this week, which essentially means hitting the books, you know lots and lot's of research.
It appears that Runco's and Marantez are actually NEC monitors. That's how NEC markets their product retail. They only sell to the public as NEC through Internet companies.
Sadly NEC is in fact rated second to Panasonic in the great plasma shootout. I guess that means Albert is right on the money, again :^)
I've found some great prices on Panasonic plasmas and will be making a purchase in the near future.
