Hi first post so be nice. Been keeping an eye on the 50" version but noticed the 65" on 2nds world is going fairly cheap compared to everywhere else I've looked. Delivery is average of $45-50 on east coast. Cheers
People have been getting this for $2300 or less over the Boxing Day sales period. Check Whirlpool forums.
Saying that; this is LOTS cheaper than the $3k I paid back in July! :)
If you already bought one, I'd suggest you stop looking! Lol
Had to get a refund due to nauseating its buzzing!
Thanks KLoNE, cheapest I've seen on WP was 2350 by 1 person during boxing day sales, but keep in mind they're no longer on. Also I should have also noted free pick up in Sydney.
Any [mod: remove language/personal attack] who whinging about plasma consumes more power than LED/LCD tv, will get my neg straight away
Yep there are pros to plasma as well
I have the latest 65" series 8 Samsung plasma, it does not compare to my 55" series 7 led I have in the bedroom. Plasma is definitely bang for your buck but led is far superior imo.
Hard to tell if trolling….
I haven't been keeping up with the latest developments in televisions for a couple of years now (I usually start reading up when I'm keen on making a purchase in the next few months - after all, we all want bang for our buck).
Back in the day, the Plasmas held out against the LCD invasion due to the awesome contrast (deeper blacks) and great viewing angles. These days however, the LED LCDs seem to be catching up. My wall-mounted LCD in the lounge works relatively well as most of our viewing is done from the couch in front or on the side of it - looks really good with high contrast if the curtain next to it is lowered. Bright sunlight around it make it look kinda dull. I'm guessing this is where the Plasmas generally have the edge.
Most of the LCD panels with effects that supposedly smooths motion just looks fake and artificial. Until they can get rid of that and have the same type of reproduction as plasma, there's still room for that.
Of course it's trolling.. This prawn like the others cannot do anything to support the case for LED, instead attempting to put plasma down.
"LED is better IMO" - tell us why?
I guess it's just a personal thing, recently got my first EDGE LED, I wasn't set on LED I was quite keen for a plasma but after comparing pictures I ended up going for LED.
Plasma is superior for watching anything that moves. (TV, movies etc)
LCD (Cathode or LED back-lit) is better for still stuff. (web browsing, photos etc)
AMOLED is close to being best of both worlds but I'm not rich enough… yet…
Who cares about power consumption? :)
My main annoyance with plasma, no idea if its all of them, is how reflective they are.
Any good deals on the 65VT50A right now?
