"Better than I thought it would be."4.5 starson by trav79sara82
Pros: Great Picture, True Blacks and no color "smere"
Cons: Glass screen reflects lots of light.
Duller not so "vivid" picture as an lcd
we have kids so the glass is a bit of a worry but not so much a con
Mind you please that all of the cons stated above were resolvable with some tweaking in the settings.
Summary: Love the picture. This is my first plasma tv. We have been sold on LCD true and true all the way through. When our 47 inch vizio broke out of warranty we had to purchase something, and this was in our price range. I am huge on first person shooter and was ecstatic when I got my first flat panel television. What a difference, "I CAN READ THE MAPS" so small on a analog television, I have to say the plasma is better. With brilliant colors and no "smearing" as i spoke of before, I would have to say I think my wife and I are sold on the plasma
