I ordered the 50pz800u from Abe's of Maine a few weeks ago, and finally received it this week. They were out of stock, and I had to wait for them to get in a new shipment from the manufacturer. However, it's here and just in time for the Super Bowl.

I love it. The picture, and even the sound, are outstanding. Last night I borrowed a friend's PS3 and watched WALL-E in bluray and was blown away. I want to thank everybody in the forum for helping me make the decision, especially for talking me into getting the 50 inch. I was actually considering a 42 inch. Right now I would be wishing I had ordered a bigger tv if I had gone with the 42 inch. The 50 inch is a perfect size for my living room and it looks great.

Congrats!

Glad you went with the bigger set also. As we likely told you, more people regret not getting a bigger screen very shortly after they their HDTV, and many times it is after the 30 day return window too.

Enjoy, and just make sure you use that THX mode and keep the Picture/Contrast setting at 50 for the first 100-200 hours. :hithere:

No you got the TH-50PZ80U (going by your other thread) He ordered a few steps up being the 800U The 80U doesnt have the THX mode and on the TV its for picture not sound.

But anywho congrats on your new Panny Plasma im sure you will enjoy it!! Oh and I was also looking at 42/46" sizes and went with 50" and I am pleased I went bigger as well!

That is why I tell people Rule number 1 when it comes to HDTV: Bigger ALWAYS = Better.
