This is probably true, not a bad strategy I suppose since so many just want "the big flat screen".

And the rest, are forced to (and usually willing to) pay more for the premium level.

I am actually leaning towards an LG PK950 plasma >_< Image retention be damned!

I'm hoping for some good things from the Samsung D-series but if they keep the same shitty 55" panels from the C-series, I'll likely avoid them. Seriously, let's go back to the excellent 52" panels that literally every manufacturer had at the beginning of 2009.

So there really aren't any strong models in the mid range in 2010?

I'm also looking for an lcd I can game on. I was going to go for a 46" samsung C610 or 630 until I heard about the "samsung panel lottery". Now I'll be looking at lg or maybe a sharp.

Me and my 2 friend are gaming on Projectors (1080p) because at that size Xbox 360 and PS3 look like crap (jaggies everywhere)... and it's great ;)

I hear SOME good things about the 2010 XBRs but there is no way I would spend $4.5K and risk the backlight bleed some are experiencing.
