Summary: Just recently purchased a PIONEER PDP-6020FD 60" KURO plasma panel to add to my stable of aquired KURO's. This makes number four PIONEER plasma for me, my stable includes: PRO-111FD 50", PDP-5020FD 50" (upgraded board mod), PDP-4270HD 42"and the aforementioned PDP-6020FD 60". The 6020 is on par with my Pro-111 sans the extra color, along with noise reduction and other controls.
Super Image, beat expectations. Great customer care from Amazon.

Summary: What can I say that hasn't been said? This TV beat my picky expectations by far! If your one to notice over hyped colors, bad shadow detail, poor blacks, washed out colors, hyped motion "anti-blurring" sets, you'll love this TV. This is my first HD TV but I have been looking to buy for 6 years. My wife bought me a Blu-ray player ( Oppo BDP-83 recommend ) so I made the leap...so glad I did. I am very picky about picture quality.
Summary: So I've had the 6020FD for a few months. First off, the 'top of the line' Samsung LCD that maxes out at 55 inches is the UN55B8000. It currently (today) costs $3600. I purchased my Kuro for 3697 all in and is listed at 3700 today on Amazon. So that's $100 difference. Half the price is a comment made by an idiot. It is half the wieght of the Kuro - certainly not half the price. The differnce in the 5 inches (55 to 60) is 19% larger area for the Kuro screen-wise.
Summary: If picture quality is important to you, and you don't want to spend significantly more, this is your display. It doesn't get better than this at this price point. It's got 4 HDMI inputs, you can hook a computer up to it, as well as the usual array of monitor options. Contrary to popular opinion, this TV can be calibrated through it's service menu, using software from ControlCal, so it's not worth the premium for the Elite.
Summary: I just bought 2 of these babies and love them ! Mine were shipped by J & R Music via a carrier called Absolute Freight Carriers (or something like that) I paid for expedited threshold delivery. Beware ! Items shipped by dealers (even though they are listed with Amazon.com) are not covered with Amazon shipping rates (ex "free shipping") The day my order was placed an email followed stating further notification would follow when shipment was in route.
Summary: This is such a good TV. Picture is beautiful and the sound is ok too. I bought this tv through amazon and got the white glove delivery. All went smoothly and the tv arrived one day ahead of schedule. I advise you do turn on the tv to make sure it works and check for scratches etc.. Only negative comment is (for videophiles) that every option as far as temperature control and some advanced options for picture adjustment aren't available (for 90% of us the extra money for...
Summary: I bought this TV wanting the best I could afford. I didn't buy this at Amazon but another online vendor. Anyways I'm comparing this TV to my Sony SXRD (DLP) TV. It looks so much better maybe due to the fact that I could see the "screen door effect" on my older TV. I love the fact the speakers are optional since I already have my theater setup. The appearance of the TV is excellent, very beautiful to look at first hand. Once setup at the house, it looks so good.
