Summary: I bought this Tv after doing reserchfor a while. I had an older Panasonic plasma that had an A-board malfuntion. The pic on this thing is great. Only problem is if you watch normal TV your in for trouble. Since almost all TV stations have logos or steady banners your at serious risk for image burn in. I know all the things people say about image retention versus burn in. I was watching HLN for a few weeks, just during the day and watched movies the rest of the time.
Summary: Perfect set for someone who just watches TV/movies and doesn't play games. i loaded up cod and i noticed the input lag within the first few seconds. a big dissandvantage in competitive online games. (yes, game mode was on) i knew about the input lag issue before i purchased from bb, but i hardly ever play games anymore so i'm sticking with it for the great picture. It would have been nice to be able to load up cod and play with friends once in a while.
