Possibly only for a few hours, Amazon has the 50" Panasonic Viera Plasma HDTV (model TC-P50X1) on sale for just
$669 $699 (look to the right of the landing page under the heading "More Buying Choices" and make sure you select it from Amazon, not a third party vendor). This is a fantastic price for any 50" plasma, let alone a name brand. It features 720p high-def resolution (there's a longstanding secret that even experienced videophiles can't tell between 720p and 1080p until you hit the 52" mark), 600Hz refresh rate, 30,000:1 standard contrast ratio, and more. Shipping is free with no sales (except KS, KY, ND, NY, WA).
