My Panasonic plasma is five years old and still delivering a stunning picture, 
blacks and all. It has fairly large speakers below the display and it sounds 
good, too.

Thanks.  I am still looking.  Looked at the Panasonic G series 50" at
Best Buy this weekend.  It is a magnificent image, and is almost 50%
less in price that the high end LED-LCD sets.  But I am reading from
some sources that the plasma will fade (and the rich blacks that are so
attractive in the plasma) will 'gray up' in time.... then other sources
say these newer ones are better about that.  But who knows?

Also, this set does not have an analog audio output (many of them don't
these days).  So how will I connect it to my existing stereo system to
get better than the tinny sound that all flat panel TVs emit?  It's a
shame someone at Panasonic didn't think of that.

Set it up Friday... going from CRT I'm still getting used to it.

Image is nice, though it's obvious that newer shows look better than
shows.  Watched the Eagles game on it Sun... The loss was just as ugly
it would have been on the CRT (and no motion/refresh rate problems). 
Overall, for what I paid I'm happy with it.
