Summary: I went with plasma after doing research regarding the refresh issues with LCD. I like fast action movies and sports and did not want to become frustrated with a blurred image.
I purchased a blue-ray player and noticed little improvement on my older HDTV and therefore was moved to upgrade my TV to benefit fully.
I was looking at the V10 and S1 series. I decided against the S1 because of the lack of features, especially the ability to adjust the picture. I was close to purchasing a V10 but the cost was holding me back a bit. The decision was made for me when Video Only offered me the 54G10 TV for $1399.99.
I also considered the Samsung, but I read too many reviews of returns and people irritated with the buzzing (no buzzing with the Panasonic).
You would be splitting hairs to get the V10 over the G10, slightly better picture under certain circumstances.
Bottom line, unbelievable price for a plasma of this quality and size.
One note, I was considering the 58? because my old TV is a 57. Companies evidently don?t measure screen size the same. My new 54? is the same size as my 2002 57?, so I saved some money and went with the 54?.
