Go take a look at one of these, it may change your mind:

The blacks make it look like a plasma, but it weighs much less and does well in bright light. Amazing TV.

No.

Is your Toshiba 4:3 or wide?
Mine's a 4:3. At the time I bought it, 4:3 sets were still a lot more common, and since most of the actual content at the time was 4:3, it made sense.

I'm sure it's awesome, but $3,500 is a tad steep.

If I were to buy a new set today, it's probably be a plasma. The picture quality on these, in general, has improved a lot over the past decade. What I'd really prefer is a DLP, but it seems like there are just too many horror stories. The LED-based ones seemed promising, not sure why they sort of vanished.

I have had basically zero problems with my Samsung products. I have a 40" Samsung LCD, that was a cheaper model 2.5 years ago and it works like a champ, and it looks great (to me...). My wife and I both have Samsung phones, my Galaxy S is super nice (to me...).

Hoping for no dead pixels on arrival...

I have a 56" RCA CRT triple projector that looks like crap. It refuses to hold a decent convergence, so whites always look really fuzzy, especially near the edge of the screen (like where the HUD text is on COD). It's so unbelievably irritating that I just use the 37" Dynex I mentioned earlier in my bed room.

I'm hoping this will be on my doorstep when I get home. It should be here today, maybe tomorrow...
