Just bought a Vizio D39-co at Costco for the front room, have a 1080p 60 inch Panny Plasma in the main viewing room.
For $270, and watching from 10 feet away, it's a darned good little set.
It may only be a 720p set but watching Bladerunner in HD on a 720p HDDVD player, (yeah, I was one of those dummies that bought this extinct technology...picture is nice though), and the set produces surprising great contrast and solid blacks.
Nothing to complain about; doesn't feel like a huge step down from the Panny to be honest.
I calibrated it with the Sound & Vision DVD and it looks great.
If anyone is interested in the calibration numbers I came up with let me know.
All in all, highly recommended, great value.
