Honestly, I’m not a die hard TV guy. Cover your eyes, but I watch my daily dose of the Daily Show on a 42-inch Vizio – you really can’t beat it for the money. If you’ve got a penchant for the high end and need a crazy spec list to impress you, yourself and Irene, then look no further, for a Plasma that is. The Panasonic TH-65VX100 apparently takes it to a whole new level. The $9,999 set sports the following: a 1920×1080 65-inch screen, 60,000:1 contrast ratio, 18-bit signal processing for what HD Guru says produces 7,160 equivalent step of graduation, improved glass filters, widened color gamut and a whole lot more. It’s also got 4 HDMI inputs, one component (huh?), one PC input and an RS-232 for jacking in your Creston system.
Ok, I’m gonna stop. If you want the full specs hit up the HD Guru. The TV releases in late December ’08.
