    just bought the TV, receiver, DVD, and remote. also just got the HD DVR. the rest I already had. spent about 5K on the upgrade including a stand for the plasma.
    no pics yet. still waiting for some stuff to arrive. main reason for the upgrade was to switch from component to HDMI for 1080P DSS and BluRay. My old 46" RPTV only did 480P or 1080i via component video, and the plasma takes considerably less floor space.
    I was going to sell the stuff I replaced but I'm finding it doesn't have a great resale value anymore. No value retention in electronics at all.
    This is the old setup:
    av02

    I found out the TV is worth about $400-450, and the receiver is worth maybe $250. Sad since I paid about $2400 and $1100 respectively for them. Also paid about $400 for my old TSU2000 Philips Pronto touchscreen remote that's worth maybe $100 now. Not sure what the panasonic RP82 DVD is worth but not likely too much either, even with the Faroudja DCDi chipset.

    Ah well, such is life.

    Yup no resale value in Electronics unless you sell stuff quickly...

    Sounds like a proper makeover. Just curious why you went with a Plasma over LCD?

    Long answer short, plasma is better than LCD overall. Better blacks by far.

    Plasma also has a wider viewing angle than LCD. Not that you'll be watching off to the side

    Our LCD is 176 or 178 degree viewing angle...lol

    Thats well enough.

    Ive heard about the blacks being blacker with Plasma.

    yeah overall better and similar in pricing now.

    faster refresh
    better black levels (mine is THX certified and I've seen rave reviews on it using the THX setting for color)
    better viewing angle
    100K hour lifespan, and technology to avoid permanent burn-in.
    all that stuff.
    I looked at LCD too but I think I prefer plasma. I looked at DLP as well but I want something to save space now, so going with the 50" plasma and a Bell'O TV stand that it mounts to, giving me a shelf under the set for the center channel.

    it'll look like this when it's all together:
