I have done a fair bit of research on the 3 plasmas I am considering:

The Samsung PN50C7000, Panasonic 54G20, and Panasonic VT25.

3D is not a factor, but I have read the Picture quality on all 3 is great, and the colors etc are reasonable on all 3 (rising black not being an issue, as discussed in several places).

What I am particularily concerned about is a review by plasmatvbuyingguide citing unacceptable (picky?) motion judder on the pannys vs the Samsung. All other factors being great etc.

Motion judder is about the only thing that would wreck my viewing experience, as I am less concerned on color saturation as long as it's decent etc.

I have included their comments below in italics:

Any opinions on this? I would be dealing mostly with HD Satellite or DVD/BR DVD as sources.
