Summary: Bit of a TV buff, so this may go on a bit- I have had this TV for about two months now, still bedding in so can only presume the picture will change in the future, if it is possible to get any better that is. I have the TV connected to a Pionner LX91 Blue Ray Player and a Pionner amp and I watch TV through a virgin TIvo box on HD channels.
Pros: Picture is truly amazing. The sharpness is unbelievable and the gamma is corrected giving it a deeper feel, TV sounds good for normal TV viewing, Black levels are very good, Build quality is outstanding, TV Tuner looks very good, Functions that it has are numerous and easy to use, Remote control is excellent
Cons: Still hear the ticking noise, but goes when the tv is fully warmed up. Still annoys me that the cables stick ou the side
Summary: I just bought the 42" VT30 Plasma after almost opting for the Samsung UE40D8000 LED, and boy am I pleased with the decision. After reading a whole host of reviews about about the Samsung I went to buy it at the store and then I saw the VT30 and it's 2D and 3D picture quality blew my mind, and viewed at any angle. Yesterday I installed it at home and Wow wow wow.
Pros: Superb picture quality, Skype & YouTube work perfectly, Eccellent 3D
Cons: No open web browsing for browsing internet, Only one SCART connection
