Summary: I received this TV last week and so far it has been AWESOME! I would have given it 5 stars but the sound quality is a little muffled. It doesn't bother us much since we plan on hooking up a surround sound system but if you are using the TV's speakers exclusively, you may want to reconsider. Picture quality is amazing...best I've seen and I did a TON of research before deciding on this model. I was back and forth between plasma and LCD and I'm so glad I went plasma.
Summary: Well, I struggled long and hard between a plasma and an LCD. Needless to say, the plasma won. This is a really nice TV. The colors are rich and vibrant, blacks are deep and true and the menu system works really well. The down side about this unit is its refresh rate, at least I'm pretty sure that this is what's responsible for this 1, and only negative. While watching fast motion, the pixilation is rather disappointing.
Summary: Bottom line is this TV is amazing in almost every way. Blue-Ray is fantastic! HDTV is superb! PS3 and Xbox360 is breathtaking. Haven't encountered any ghosting or burn in yet. As everyone says the only thing that its lacking is a loud-booming sound but that shouldn't stop anyone from getting it, since that's an easy fix. You wont be disappointed.
Summary: This TV has has gorgeous quality picture, excellent sound and great features. It is easy to use and looks sleek and attractive. Only one drawback, I had heard this was possible and it turned out to be true -- there is a moderately loud hum when the TV is on. If turning on the TV itself, you may not even notice it.
Pros: Attractive Design, Fast Setup, Great Picture, Simple Controls
