LG 60PX950

I like the LG 60PX950 but the 4 star energy rating is the downside.
Great contrast, 600 hz and 60" to boot!

I don't think there is better! what do you think????

That LG is mostly marketing hype

I'd suggest you do a side by side with a Panasonic TC-P65VT25 or TC-P58VT25.

The best of best tv's... The V20/25 Panasonic

Your talking US $ right?

Really if I had $5k I would go with a PJ, an Epson 31000UB pro at $4.5k MSRP (released in Dec.) or wait a little for the price to come down & get the 61000UB pro (released in Dec.)

Back to the tv part, you do not need to spend $5k on a great in that size now days!!!! 3-4 years ago yes it would cost that much for that size, but not now days, that price you can get a great 65" panny & still save money.

54-55" tv's run from about $1400-$3500, most are around >$2k-$2.8k

Big price tag does not = great tv PQ

Last year I paid $1850 for my 54" Panasonic G10 1 month after it was 1st released & no LCD today can match it in PQ.
