I'm considering purchasing a 1080p 50" plasma set. Right now I've narrowed down my options to the Samsung 5084. But I've read about a new Vizio 50" 1080p plasma with the new Silicon Optix HQV Reon processor. It's supposed to smooth out the picture from any artifacts. Doesn't come out until June, but is expected to retail for about $100 less than the Samsung. I don't know much about the Vizio other than info from CES. Now I'm not sure if I should pull the trigger on the Samsung 5084 or wait until this new Vizio comes out. Any thoughts?

**IF** you can wait until the Vizio becomes available it might be best for you to compare it with the Samsung. Your eyes should be the best judge for what looks better.

Of course, price/value should be factored in as well. A set that looks a lot better might cost many $$ more than one that looks almost as good. Again, it's your decision.

Btw, I own a Vizio GV47L and am very happy with it. Are there better sets out there? Sure, but not for what I paid for the Vizio. I let my eyes and wallet, comparison wise, make the decision.
