"Picture Perfect"on by chrkeller
Pros There really isn't anything not to love about this TV. The blacks are deep, the whites are white. The colors are bold and highly accurate given the THX certification. The motion is flawless.
Cons None, at all.
Summary I am a huge gamer. I have a 360 and ps3. Videogames have a ton of motion and this set handles motion like a champ. I have spent hundreds of hours playing on LCD models and they don't even remotely stand up to this set. I couldn't possible recommend this TV more. I consider myself an expert with home theatre and I am very hard to please. This set lives up to the hype. CNET is exactly right, the only set that is better is the Pioneer Elite which is 5k. Given the much lower price this is the best of the best. I honestly could not recommend this set more, it truly is perfect for those videophiles who are into gaming. The picture quality is like looking through a window.
Pros Love the picture, especially with my DVDO Edge video processor attached. THX Color is dimmer (perfect for evening) but looks great. No problems w/TV. Football, concerts etc...I'm super-thrilled.
Cons Says its "Deep Color" capable, but have not gotten it to process w/ Deep Color signal. No great loss...
Summary I like the large, excellent picture (cable, BD, DVD, games), attractive design, and configuration that allows it to be mounted on an extension arm. Everyone wants to come over! 58" size sounds large (and is), but is not imposing.
Pros beautiful ,rich colors. Excellent color saturation and accuracy especially in THX mode. Picture clarity excellent. No "flicker" with 48hz picture setting. Gorgeous, piano black finish.
Cons There is not really anything to complain about.
Summary Killer plasma TV set at a bargain price. The picture quality is excellent. Not as good as my brother's Pioneer 60 inch elite kuro, but it's a third of the price. THX mode using warm and normal temps perfect with most viewing (follow "the Masters' setting in AVS forum). Picture setting needs to be cranked up to 100 in THX mode. Vivid mode is great for sporting events in bright light conditions. Awesome set.
Cons heavy..I am building a cupboard and the base sticks out about 5 inches infront of frame face so the TV sits back in the cupboard several inches.
Summary GET IT BEFORE THEY STOP MAKING THEM..

Pros Aesthetics rock. The picture quality is superb. I had it calibrated by a THX certified calibrator and I can't imagine anything looking better than this does.
Cons None so far
Summary Excellent TV, there are great deals to be had with this set. The picture quality is among the best period. I have yet to see better, Pioneers included. But then again that is only my opinion, what do i know?
