Help me replace my TV
April 23, 2014 1:31 PM Subscribe
So I recently moved to San Mateo, CA from Chicago, hurray! Pretty much everything has been great and the move quite smooth. What sucks is that in the move my beloved Panasonic ST60 60 inch was broken, likely during the drive out here. I had moved who packed it up and delivered it to UPack, then moved who unloaded it from there and moved it into my house. Sadly it didn't survive. Now I need to start looking or thinking about a replacement BUT Panasonic stopped making plasma's altogether and I wasn't expecting to have to buy a TV again so soon. What should my next TV be?

Ideally I'd love to buy a replacement, but googling and calling around to a number of different places has yielded 0 backstock which I could purchase. So barring a miracle it looks like it needs to be a different model. Which is good now? I've read that now that Panasonic is out of the plasma market, you're pretty much stuck with an LED TV, is that true? Should I wait if there's a new class coming out? I usually do a fair bit of research and then buy based off of that and I wasn't expecting to be out a TV so soon so I feel a bit behind the 8 ball.
(Bonus points if you can tell me who I should talk to about submitting a claim, ABF UPack or my renters insurance which also would cover this)
