50-inch Dell Plasma - $3799. What do you think?

Just released today. What's your opinion compared to other 50's? Is the price/performance better or worse?

Dell's TV comes at a competitive price but if you can afford performance, I'd go with Panasonic.

The consumer Panny plasma can be had for ~3200 by shopping around. We just picked it up - absolutely spectacular.
