Panasonic 720P plasmas have come down a lot in price recently, and are arguably the best brand out there. I have a 42" one, and everyone that sees it thinks that it is 1080P. I would suggest one of these.

I'm kicking myself -- Dell Home had a Viera X1 50"(Panasonic) for $667 the other day :(

Panasonic is THE Plasma TV to buy unless you can still find a Pioneer Elite KURO. The Kuro's are no longer being produced and were pricey but they had the BEST picture I ever saw on any set, period. Anyway, the actual Panasonic model depends on your needs. A quick internet search will tell you what size you need for your viewing area (based on the distace from where you view to where the TV will be mounted). There are some great deals on 720p models which would be fine for a bedroom but I'd stick with the 1080p models if it's your main set or the heart of your home theater system. If you plan to watch blu ray DVD's at some time, you'll need the 1080 to do them justice.

all though it is not at your $800 dollar range, the extra $300 gets you a hell of a lot more TV

How does everyone feel about rear projection. I have been watching the 60ish inch range on Mitsubishi rear projection. not quite your 800 dollar range but I think they provide a great quality picture in a much larger size, for the lowest price. granted you can't mount them on the wall but they are still pretty thin in my opinion. less that 2 feet on a 60 inch for most models i have seen.
