A couple of years ago, I finally made the leap to HDTV. I am now completely spoiled and don’t know how we ever lived without 50″ of real estate within which to best view “Storage Wars.” Heh.
I remember being so pleased with myself for snagging a Panasonic VIERA for around $700. Sure, it’s a 720p (rather than 1080p), but the reality is that as long as you’re sitting further away from the set than about 6 feet—which you should—the human eye can’t tell the difference. I love our TV more than I probably should.
I don’t know if this 50″ 720p VIERA at Amazon is the exact same model as the one we have, but it’s close if it’s not the same one. And right now? That one is just $500 delivered. That’s a crazy good deal on a TV that size, if you don’t want the very latest top-of-the-line specs, but want a good brand. (You don’t even have to watch “Storage Wars” if that’s not your thing.)
