Alright boys & girls, I need some input:I looking into purchasing a 50inch plasma. I talked to a local tv store and he gave me four models that he thought were good:
panasonic TH50px50u (which I would not buy b/c this is last year model, so for this discussion use the TH50P60U)
Pioneer PDP-5060HD,
Samsung hpr5052,
Nakamichi VU50P.
Any advice???

Panny all the way!

The Panasonic is the best on the market now for sure. Just look at the top tv's on this site, damn near all of them are panny's. The 60U is definitely the best way to go other than the Panasonic industrial models, but the new ones have not came out yet, so if your looking now go with the 60U. With panasonic you get the picture, features and all from the most expensive tv's with the almost the lowest prices in the plasma market, pretty much unbelievable. You can go to any store and the picture which is the most important is just stunning from Panny. Enjoy whichever one you pick!

PANASONIC virtually rules in your price range (among others.) You could wait for the 600U due by June 06.

Good shopping,

Nakamichi Plasma, Interesting!

Anyone who starts their thread with ''boys and girls'' gets my attention.

Also, I guessed I missed it but I did not know that Nakamichi was selling plasmas under their brand name. I did a search and apparently they have in the past been sold thru Sam's, etc. Could not find out who makes it for Nakamichi. There was one mention that Nak and Optima plasmas might be the same, but don't know who makes Optima, either.

Of course, Nakamichi is an old top quality Japanese brand that specialized in high quality tape decks. However, I couldn't recommend their plasmas unless I know for sure who makes them. It's a good chance it might be Panny or NEC. However, Akai another famous Japanese brand sells plasmas that are low quality Chinese models.

Panny and Pioneer are both excellent. Here is my list:

#1 Panasonic
#2 Pioneer
#3 Samsung (not close to the above two)
? Nakamichi

BASED on previous model numbers, new models would be known as TH-__ P__-9UK. Or something like that.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
