"Best Value in a HDTV, Bar None"5.0 starson by chingiss
Pros: There is no better value in a HDTV at this moment. This set has excellent black levels and gorgeous colors. Other reviews have commented that light output in THX mode is dim but if you position this TV in a really dark room it is bright enough.
Cons: Sound maybe be a little thin but that is the case with most TV's. I do wish the 3rd HDMI port was on the front panel. Do yourself a favor and partner this baby with a good soundbar or better yet a decent midlevel receiver.
Summary: I looked at and researched several TV's including the new Samsung B series and a Pioneer and 2 Sony LCD's and frankly even without the price advantage(I paid $1511 at Amazon) I know I made the right choice with the Panny. I am so satisfied that I am in danger of becoming a couchpotato.LCD screens may be brighter but Plasma is a much more natural picture. Also motion is displayed much smoother than on even much more expensive 120hz TV's. Until OLED technology becomes wide spread this TV is The Bomb Baby!.
