Stunning for sure, but why recommend plasma when it will be used in a bright room?

I could find fault with a Mclaren P1 or Porsche 918. Doesn't mean they aren't the best supercars in the world.

Get the Panasonic if it's in your budget and you seriously aren't worried about UHD.

I've had LCD/LED and Plasmas as well - and in my brightly lit room I still vastly prefer the Plasma.

If the OP wanted objectivity he'd go look at all the TVs in the closest environments he could find to his room... But he posted here and is getting a bunch of subjective opinions - most of which seem to recommend the Panny plasmas.

I'd much prefer to shut the curtains than watch an inferior TV!

I have a VT30 65" Panasonic, can't recommend them enough, the series is stunning esp the newer VT60.  Also considering Panasonic has stopped plasma production. Wish I could store away a VT60 for the future :)

I have a plasma in a lit room. Windows all round. Sun shining in. No problems. If I really want to watch the picture at its best I close the curtains. I won't bother with lcd, waste of time. But that's me.

Oh if you were to ask what happens when the sun is shining. I don't notice the sun. Plasma is pretty bright. That's on the lowest brightness to save power as I have an old one.
