That may be the case but there are some good deals going around at the moment for some not so old technology as well. For example, the cousin, brother, son, grandson of the previously mentioned Samsung is the SAMSUNG 106cm PS42P4H which is currently on sale at DSE for $3,998 which is about $1,000 off where it was last week.

You can look at reviews of this around here somewhere but it looks like a pretty good deal to me.

DSE Link that probably doesn't work (you will have to go to the site and search for G4270).

Cheers.

Someone has to say it,  sorry guys but you are buying end of the line technology,  thats why prices are tumbling

..which 6+ months ago were considered top line technology.

So what? They still do the same as they did 6 months ago. Some people simply don't need all the bells and whistles that are offered today.

If you *have* to have the latest technology then all the best to you. If thats what you need to think to warrant your purchase or to enable you to sleep best at night then great.

But please don't insinuate that those posting in this thread don't realise that they aren't buying the latest releases - its the exact reason most of them *are* posting in this thread!

Whoa! there, I didn't insinuate a damn thing. I just stated a fact. The thread of this disccussion is that Plasma prices are coming down and I stated why. Get it right.

1) $3998 is significantly more than $2250

2) HD is not a certainty in our DTV future.

3) LCD is going to replace plasma because of a number of issues including price. However, plasma currently gets you a bigger brighter picture with blacks and no motion trails, and currently costs less (for a given size) than lcd.

4) At present you could argue that a hd plasma faces more competition from lcd than the sd plasmas

It may disappear from the market in the next 5 years, but if you're buying now, I can see how you would at least look at sd plasma.

A company for a price match from another company..

the reply that was received back was that it was below cost, and that i should take that offer...

another email 1 hour later saying that the offer would be matched if it was paid by the end of business that day, which it was...

12 days later it arrived to my door..

i guess the internet and email allows you to not have to deal with pushy salesmen, just hit reply and go for it...

May I add that Plasma's devour roughly eighty percent more power than than a similar LCD panel, given that there would have to be a few million of them out there that represents another chunk of energy resource that mother earth doesn't need to have. I am no greenie but I really do detest technology that is wasteful of our planets resources. :P

What guarantees the newer models are better technology? If they follow DVD players they will get to a point in price where they can no longer offer the quality and features for the market price!

Yeah, plasma tvs killed the dinosaurs.

For equivalent sized screens power consumption is up to twice as much in plasma. Ie 42 inch lcd (sony) 240watts; plasmas vary from 250 to 500 watts. Both are less than CRT tvs (and larger, of course). A popular NEC plasma model is rated at 275 watts - not a significant difference, cheaper......

Ahhhh, the power of google.

Get back in your electric car, spoon.

And (probably not finally) - the push to lcd is driven by market forces. Manufacturers can make money from it. The importance of having a development pathway to drive the market can't be underestimated. If you can see through the crap and buy the display that suits you, good luck to you.

I luv the pip use it all the time. Golf on 1, cricket on the other, motor racing on 1, footy on the other, porn on 1, deperate house wives on the other. How can you live without it.

I use the topfield and just record the other channel, flick through it and delete.

I'm a TV button flicker, drives my wife crazy, I hate adverts, so I guess PIP would help can always go back to the continuation of a program without missing anything.
