...and went with the Panny (TH-42PX60U). I was toying with the LG 42" plasma but CC had an in-store deal on the Panny and I couldn't pass it up. BTW, they have the 50" Panny on sale for $2K, if anyone is interested... They also knocked an extra $100 off the price to upgrade my Comcast service to HD. This seemed odd to me as Comcast charges $0/month for the HD box...

Set up was pretty easy but I still need to educate myself on what all the various cabling options are. The manual is really no help here explaining the ins and outs of each. If someone has a link to a good cabling FAQ I'd appreciate it.

Another interesting item is that no where in the manual is there any mention what-so-ever about a break-in period for the set. I have read numerous times about the importance of cranking down your settings for (at a minimum) the first 100 hours, limiting viewing of letterboxed vids, etc. I am/plan to follow break-in guidelines, but I'd appreciate hearing your views on break-in periods for plasmas.

My big concern, the quality of SD signals, was misplaced - my set upconverts quite well. We watched HBO's Rome last night and were amazed at how good it looked. Can't wait 'til we get the HD box and HDMI cabling hooked up....
