Vizio P50HDM 50" 1080i HD Plasma Television

Probably one of the cheapest 50-inch plasma monitors in the market, Vizio P50HD can be bought from Costco for $2600. Very cheap for a plasma of this size but not without its quirks. First of all it is heavy - 125lb - so call your friends for a TV setup party. Video quality is not for a videophile and no one expects that with this price. There are problems with contouring and image size mismatch on the sides. In my opinion all these problems can be eliminated with an external video processor such as a basic HTPC plugged into the DVI port of the monitor.

We got my in-laws this TV for Christmas 2005. In January 2009, it made a pop & quit working. They spent $ 800 to replace two of the major boards inside, just to have it pop & quit again in May 2009. The tech said that there is something inside that is making the set burn out. Now, we have to go buy... Read full review »

I bought this for my hubby for father's day, and he loves it! Costco has a $100 off coupon until June 22, so it was only $1504 with tax...can't beat it! And they give 90 days to return and extend the warranty to 2 years!I did a lot of research, and while not being a tech-nut, thought the cost was... Read full review »
