Panasonic TC-P50S2

This TV is under $900 at Best Buy. It's 1080p, 600Hz sub-field drive, Viera, etc. It's a no-frill Plasma, so if you need the useless streaming Netfilx, YouTube and other Internet stuff, then look elsewhere or at the G series Panasonic. Panny's have been getting rave reviews. I own the above 50" and also the Panny 42" Plasma, and the picture is stunning.

By me telling you that I can get the Panasonic G-series for a hundred dollars less doesn't make it the best plasma under $1500.00

No, saying so doesn't make it so, but it is, IMHO

Aside from the Pioneer Kuro, for mega bucks, Panasonic is making Plasma TVs that consistently get rave reviews. Who else makes Plasma TVs that are worth a darn except for Samsung. Just don't ask me to give my opinion of Samsung TVs.

...are you posting questions here if you already know your options and prices, and more importantly, have already formed hard opinions on which ones are better (e.g. G-series vs. S2)? Seems silly to me.

FWIW, the PQ will be very similar between those two Pannys. Perhaps the performance will be better w/ the G series as it has a single glass panel with the AR filter bonded onto it like the Kuros do. For most non-videophile folks looking for a strong value and not needing the extra internet features, the S2 might be preferable.

Why would you respond to a silly question. As I was told in grade school no question is a silly question. Have a good day buddy.
