We're looking to buy a 42" flat SAMSUNG PLASMA TV at $798. Is this a good TV and a good price...
The Samsung PN42A450 42" is a good 720P plasma in the under $1,000 range. This is a small plasma set by todays standards. If it is big enough for you--then it is fine. I have found it online for $749 tax-free and delivered.
Don't get suckered into buying an extra warranty.
The reason why the price is inexpensive is because they are clearing out their 720p plasma's for the newer and more expensive 1080p sets.
