Costco is selling this plasma flat panel(Philips 50PF7220A/37) on their web site. Does anyone have some info on it? How does it compare to the Panasonic TH-50PM50U (picture wise) they were selling a few weeks ago?

Model number doesn't really ring a bell.

I'm seriously considering buying this tv from costco too. I noticed the dicsepancy in the model numbers and wondered why this was the case. Is it possible that the costco model numbers don't exactly match up with the otherwise published numbers because they are either reconditioned, or perhaps a previous model year???
I'm just speculating and have nothing to base this on and don't want to spread any misinformation, but why???
Otherwise it looks like a nice set at a good price ($2,600 w/coupon). But what do I know I'm new here. If I do get it I'll be sure to report back. The coupon expires Sunday the 29th.

I bought the seems great. My issues however is that I went from a 36" crt to a 50" plasma. And the picture quality is not very good..due to the fact that it enhances all the errors that the old TV didn't show too dno't get overly excited.

However..I do plan on adding HDTV very soon..somehow, someway..whether it be antenna (which I have my doubts about), or upgrading my dishnetwork box in march. So i have no doubt it'll be worth the 2600.

As far as the post about the philips not lasting..that's why you buy it at costco!! Happy

I have a 50pf9955, a pile of junk! Power supply burned out @ 18 months, Remote in 14 months. Stay away from Philips unless you like to have your unit in shop. If you have simlar experience and want to join class-action suit, contact me.

The PANASONIC TH-50PM50U is on their web-site.......

THIS model has NO TUNER. Essentially, a monitor with speakers. Needs external cable box, dish, whatever; so think about this additional cost. As for the price the site says check with store/vendor.

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?
