I wouldn't buy it. I bought a Sampo DVD player in May and it's already starting to crap out on me.

If you can afford a $3600.00 tv in college then I wish I was a "poor" college kid too, jizzz.

They talk a lot about the Sampo in the Finnish film "The Day The Earth Froze" which appeared on MST3K.

Since Plasma screens begin to fade after 2-4 years of use..I wouldn't call them a good investment.

Plus...Plasma has yet to produce as a good a picture as a high quality CRT.
