Summary: I so wanted this to be a glowing report for my first Plasma. Hours and hours of research had led me to believe that as far as mid/high end TV's go, they dont come much better than this. The Panny had earned glowing reviews for it's excellent 2d and 3d pictures, super smooth motion and excellent static contrast ratio. Coming from a 2 year old high-end Samsung LED I was expecting to be blown away! Well, not exactly. I'll start with the good.
