Providing the phone and the tablet would be very useful, which one would you pick? Would you go for the better picture of the plasma or the practicality of a decent quality LED and some stuff that would make you money in the long run?

1. Panasonic Plasma P42ST60

2. Sony 32W653 +
LG Nexus 5 +
ASUS Memo Pad HD 7 tablet.

I would pick the ST60 if only because TV purchases should last a while and not depreciate as fast as other electronics. If you go with the ST60, even four years from now it might give a picture better than any other TV in its budget range.

If you go with the other option, in four years you will have a mediocre TV and a pile of mobile junk. Especially because none of those mobile devices just released, the clock is already ticking on them.

I mean, if you are a mobile developer that can actually make money off these devices do what you need to do, otherwise the tablet and phone are fast-depreciating toys that are already past their window of peak relevancy.

The bigger issue is FINDING a P42ST60. They aren't made anymore.

If you can find a P42ST60, then buy it immediately and act like Indiana Jones did when he found the Holy Grail. That set is already a collectors edition, so to speak....

i hear that in 4 years they will have holgraphic projector sets in 4D! so umm... ;P

plus where do you even buy that tv.. i want to buy a tv also since damn led projector throws rainbows in dark scene movies (bright tv shows video games and xbox360 games are fine tho ;#$*#@)) but the model tv you listed is like 2000$ or more.. i think can get a 70" sharp for 1700 on slickdeals. SIGH
