    Looking good.
    I have been waiting and waiting to replace my (now 5 year old) PX60, it'll either be the GT50 or one of these bad boys.
    After looking through last years threads the 2011 Sammy plasmas started filtering to the shops in April. Which just happens to be when I am due an ickle bonus from work :thumbsup:

    Panasonic and Samsung both oddly unwilling to discuss their new plasmas at CES. Very weird :/

    See Steve's Blog from day two about the new cold war. It will give you an idea of just how paranoid the korean companies in particular are behaving.

    This is because samsung is copy-paste company.They find new spec from pana and later after CES they make winner combinations about what they will put inside plasma and then start to sell.

    Last year samsung d8000 plasma was bed only for black and pana was bad for brightness.Now pana is make better bright and samsung make better black and all of them need some spec thet they will be better then other.For samsung it is voice control.
