Hi all,
I've been looking for a new 50" HDTV, and after reading the post(s) on this forum I now think I would like a plasma instead of a lcd.
My only concern is the lightning in my living room.
Attached is a picure of the room. Do you guys think there will be too much light coming in from the windows?
I was looking at the TH-50PZ850U from Panasonic.
thanks for you help.

Is that the only window in the room? If so you will be fine.. The blinds will control the limited lighting that comes in anyway.. And since the window are on the side instead of directly behind you, glare should be a non factor when sitting in front of the set.

I would add curtains to block the light

Thanks for the quick reply :) The only other windows are behind me and to the side in the dinning area and they have the same kind of blinds on them too.

Is there any particular reason youre looking at last years model(850u) and not the new G10 or V10? From what ive heard the 850s are very nice, but this years models have quite a few advantages.

There are to many improvments with the new models, do not buy last years model even if the price is lower. Black levels are twice as deep and the contrast ratio is three time better.

I believe that plasmas have a lower glare effect, so you should be okay. But I agree, definitely consider getting some drapes.

And do something about that lamp in the corner, looks like you could not find a spot for that lamp b/c your closet was filled up.

hello tstp
i will suggest a plasma here .as you have mentioned about the windows.the plasma will be a better choice.and if you add curtains to the window then you can see the true colors of a plasma tv.and go for
http://powersellernyc.com/search?keywords=g10
and choose the best size you want.
best of luck:D

Black levels are twice as deep and the contrast ratio is three time better.And don't forget that the current Panasonics are brighter than the old PZ85U/PZ800U/PZ850U so they'll punch through ambient light better than the old models. Instead of the PZ850U, you should be looking at buying a current model like the S1 or G10 or V10 series.

I am in the market for new flat panel TV. My decision (after read several threads here) is either Samsung LCD TV or Panasonic Plasma TV. Since this a plasma thread, my questions are what are the differences (major differences) b/t Panny G10 and V10? I just took a quick took at Panny 54" G10 and V10 at one online site, and V10 is about $800 more...so far the only major differences are V10 has one more HDMI input and G10 has a subwoofer.

My budget is about $2K. It looks like that I can 50"-54" Panny plama TV for $2K or under, and I can only get 46" Samsung LCD TV (I have to check on the price again).

Thanks.

Thanks numan....The price for 54G10 is under 2K and it's within my budget....I have to go back to the local department store here to check the price for 50G10 and 54G10 to see they are under 2K or not.....I am temporary not in the US....I wish that I bought the TV back in the US and bring it with me.

ok, I'm back again.
I decided a 47" is too big for my living room. so I went to Sears. 42" is better for me.
Now another problem.
they have a tc p42g10 and a tc p42s1. the p42s1 is 899.00 and the g10 is 1399.00. He says they are the same tv's (he thinks)
Should I go with the S1 or stay with the g10 series that I originally was looking at?
Which is the best of these TV's. The 1399.00 is within my budget.
thanks
for all the help you guys have been giving me. It is appreciate.

According to that Nextag link Numan provided, Sears is charging over $300.00+ more for that G series model, than nearly all the other vendors listed. I would consider buying online for that much savings and go with the G series model myself. Both are very nice though from what I have read.
