"Amazing, Brilliant, Excellent Black Levels"5.0 starson by Klippers
Pros: I have had this TV for well over a year now. It continues to display brilliant colors, and thanks to tips from the AVS forums, is color tuned to perfection. Black levels, contrary to the editor, remain inky black. Xbox & Blu-ray look great!
Cons: Initially video games produces a fuzzy multi-color blur during quick movement. This went away after putting about 50-100 hours on the TV. I think it needed a little breaking in.
Summary: I love this TV. I will always go with Plasma and with Panasonic. LCD TVs still can't produce the color, clarity or black levels of this TV. I have logged thousands of hours on this TV now and the black levels remain constant.
Cnet quoted "Testing conducted on 2009 Panasonic plasma TVs, similar to this one, has revealed that black-level performance has become noticeably less impressive within what is typically the first year of ownership."
Bah. What a bunch of garbage.
