ok sears is having big sales on thurs,,,, turkey day and friday madness. pannie 58s2 for 1099. with either another 10% or 4 yrs 0% int. or the LG 60PK750 for 1499.00 with another 10% or 4 yrs 0%int. they have the lg 50pk250 for 699.00 with another 10% but no 0% unless you buy another 51.00 of electronics you need a total of 750.00 to get the deal although they might count the sales tax we pay to fast eddy. a 46inch pannie is 499.00 also if you go to the site klik deals and then look there will be three or 4 separate adds to look through one for each day.

Hmm, good question, I'd take the PK550 over both of them lol, i guess it gets better PQ than the 750, which is weird

I can tell you for a fact they will NOT count sales tax towards your overall total.
I worked there for 3 years when I was going through college.

Id go for the S2, and use the difference to hire a good calibrator like Gregg Loewen, ChadB or Dnice.

The LG's are nice, have a lot of web apps, but the blacks lack and they are well known for excessive IR.

He'd be better off using the extra $$ to gain the benefits of the G25.

Does not help if you want the extra screen size. Main reason I ignored the G was it only went to 54".

i agree on the g screen size and the 58 is almost always cheaper than the 54 inch. so bigger is cheaper some times

the LG 60PK750 for 1499.00
If $1500 is in your price range and you can get it at your Sears, you may want to consider the Panasonic Viera® 50'' Class GT25 Series Full HD 3D (http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_05775590000P?prdNo=1&blockNo=1&blockType=L1) tv unless it is to small.

3D looks to be the new thing that will start becoming more popular, since you are in the market for a new tv anyway you may want to think about getting one that will not limit your 3D option later. :what:

Its a good set, just beware it does not come with 3D glasses.

i was just at BB and the 58vt25 with 3d blue ray and extra glass set is free the tv is marked 2599 while the 65vt25with the same free pkg is marked 3999.00 there is no way 7 inches is worth another 1400.00 and the 58s2 is the same price as the 54s2 1399.00 while the 58 at sears would be 989.00

Wow, that sounds like a good price just for the TC-P58VT25 (http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-tvs/panasonic-viera-tc-p58vt25/4505-6482_7-33941232.html) let alone the extra stuff. :eek:
