What is currently the best 75" plasma TV?

Episode 937 (2:17:59)

Laurie from San Diego, CA

Laurie and her husband are getting a Plasma HDTV for Christmas. They were looking at the 75 inch Samsung, which is nice but it's a bit pricey at $10,000. Is it the best option?

Leo says that the larger the screen size, the more expensive they are. Leo just bought a 65" Panasonic Viera VT50 that he likes, and it's currently the best TV made. Sharp makes the Elite series, but they're very expensive. Laurie is also concerned that they'll wear out over time, but Leo says that plasma's no longer have that problem.

Leo also says that if they're going that size, a projector may be a better choice. That way you can go up to 100" or more and won't be laying out $10K to do it. They should check out the Value Electronics 2012 TV Picture Quality Shoot Out.
