"Excellent value"4.5 starson by gtaylor12
Pros: you can stream content from computer, easy menu, incredible picture
Cons: speakers, speakers, speakers
Summary: Overall highly recommend. Not the most expensive or cheapest but I believe best plasma for the money. I purchased this 50 inch for $1029 from Best Buy (salesperson told me they did not carry it anymore, but had a few in stock. It was NOT listed on their website, so call the store if you are interested.)
Of course incredible picture, but speakers are awful. There is a equalizer you can adjust and I was able to make it liveable. I bought and returned the samsung sound bar. It was not worth the $350. But I would recommend planning on alternative audio.
What I didn't realize is you can stream video, music, and pictures from your PC. So, we are watching home videos on the TV from the computer (if connected to the network of course.) It works very well.
The Yahoo widgets are useless as they are painfully slow. Do not let those influence your decision to buy this TV. I have used them twice and both times I clicked out as it took too long to load.
Overall, i would recommend if you can buy it for around $1000.
