    Flat Panels - Please Read, need help

    Okay, my dad wants to know what is the main difference between these two kind of TV's.

    The Pioneer Elite is a 43" Flat Panel and costs $6499

    Then we found a Panasonic TH42PD25UP for only $3,000.

    My father Mainly wants to know is it really worth the $3,000 gap!? And if it is WHY, whats the big difference between then two. They are both the same size, etc. Please I need real details. He wants to know what, why, etc.

    I mean it doesn't just have to be that Panasonic. you can throw somethin' else in there, but he wants to know if the Pioneer Elite, if it is really worth that much money!

    DUDE ECHO. if we're talking about the 43'' plasma (not elite, no difference really), GET IT. it is one of the MOST beautiful tvs ever made imo. my dad bought that exact model around february, and you'd swear that you're standing on the sidelines during march madness (HD required, of couse).

    What's so special about the Pioneer though!? Is it really worth the $6,000 when probably in five years from now they'll have some kind of new TV?

    tis that, but its no where near that price in any stores. i dunno wtf that dvd thing is on the right, cause we didn't get it. actually, its a year behind that, but all they changed was the paint from all black to 2-tone

    Buy the elite...... Lot's of differences... Most noticeably the piano gloss black finish on the case. Tis' a work of art hanging from the wall...... Yeah, I know.... that has nothing to do with performance...
    All elite parts are hand chosen. better warranty, better picture, black contrast is better than any other plasma TV in the universe.

    Lemans, when people want to buy "better gear"............. Let them. Don't take offense to this, you often make recommendations to people based on a budget that is not theirs. Make sense? The guy wants to buy a $6000 TV. Extreme? Yeah, for you and I.... Obviously not to him. It IS a better set so let him buy it.

    the 'upgrades' you stated in that post bean do not outweigh almost $4000 in my eyes. not in the least bit.

    i say go for the $2,600 one. because in all reality, it prolly costs them $200 per screen or LESS for production costs
