37" Plasmas

by nothingface / November 23, 2005 2:31 AM PST

I have my eye on the 37" Panasonic HDTV plasma TH-37PX50U because of price point and overall Panasonic reliability and performance. Can anyone offer any insight, aside from what I can find, into the quality of this set or any issues with the set? Thanks.

There must be some reason that Panny has about 50% of the plasma market. I think quality is a BIG reason.

Has 8th Gen Panel, but Fewer Features and Inputs

The TH-37PX50U does have the 8th generation 1024 x 768
panel, but has only 2 Speakers, No Photo Viewer, SD or
PC card slots, PC Aud/Vid inputs, PnP, or on screen TVGuide.

I'd heck out the specifications page for the 37inch at
panasonic to make sure that its capable of meeting your needs.
50U
http://www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/vModelDetail?storeId=15001&catalogId=13401&itemId=93337&cacheProgram=11002&cachePartner=7000000000000005702&surfModel=TH-37PX50U&catGroupId=24973&surfCategory=Plasma%20TVs&displayTab=S
500U
http://www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/vModelDetail?storeId=15001&catalogId=13401&itemId=93882&cacheProgram=11002&cachePartner=7000000000000005702&surfModel=TH-42PX500U&catGroupId=24973&surfCategory=Plasma%20TVs&displayTab=S

TH-42PX500U also has an 8th Gen panel with the same resolution Plus photo viewer, SD and PC card slots, PC
Aud/Vid input, Picture in Picture, On Screen TV Guide,
6 speakers, and ViVA HD3D Sound, but at a higher price.

Although, street prices may be closer than the
manufacturers suggested retail prices depending on which
model is selling slower, has rebates, or is on sale at
the time you make your purchase.

type in your zip next to the photo of the TV on the
product page to get a list of dealers in your area. Some
people have found lower prices by doing this than could be found on the net.

If you decide to purchase over the net, post the
vender you are concidering to find out if anyone has had
a proplem with them or would reccomend a better one.

You can compare prices on Cnet shopper

Thanks for the info. Leaning back toward the edtv sets now. Right now seems like a great time to buy, whichever unit I pick. The toughest part is setting a roof price not to spend more than. This is at about 2g's right now. This sucks. Tweeter has the 42" pioneers plasmas on sale right now for about $2500. Obviously, this is a great buy.
