Which of these 50'' plasmas is best?

by spicymeatball911 / September 9, 2005 7:48 PM PDT


I sorta have a choice between these plasmas, and I have tried to research them but can't find much information. The plasmas are:

Panasonic TH-50PX20UP
Panasonic TH-50PHD5UY
Phillips 50FD9955
Samsung HPN5039

They're all pretty old models, I think most of them are 2003-2004. I would be getting a new or refurbished model. I am totally confused as to which to pick though. They all have similar specs. I count picture quality as top priority. If anybody could tell me which they reccomend, or rank them, or tell me ones they don't reccomend, I would greatly appreciate it.
