The Samsung PN58C8000 58-Inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV has absolutely the best 2D picture I've ever seen. Because it's plasma it's equally viewable from all angles (unlike LED/LCD), plus has better color saturation and black levels than any LED/LCD, and yet somehow is much less expensive than LED/LCD. It has Samsung's 2nd generation 3D technology that will blow your mind, is Internet-ready with Samsung Apps (streaming video/audio from Netflix, Blockbuster, Hulu, YouTube, Pandora, Facebook, Twitter, etc. etc.), uses the latest 600hz subfield motion for blur-free action viewing, is DNLA enabled (I can connect to my network and stream video, music, and pictures from my PC), and has more HDMI inputs than I'll ever need. And it looks fantastic. At current pricing this is a complete no-brainer, nothing else even comes close. Just get it.
