Are you gagged by a NDA until next week ? You don't seem to be releasing much info ... Although it wouldn't exactly boost sales to give a bad first impression..

Thanks....


Looks like that one on the table has a Cloud or Flashlight in the bottom RIght Corner..

One on the wall has visibly darker blacks as well.. (may just be the angle of the picture)

I thought Samsung was developing a custom wall mount for their 2009 LCDs to be super flush? Any news on availability?

Much better...... Contrast on the samsung looks great

What is with the color differences? Text looks blue on the Sammy and white on the Panny...

Comparison of Two pich black Scenes will be interesting...

The Panny looks like it might be tilted downward a bit.

While plasmas are excellent in horizontally off-axis situations, vertical off-axis performance might not be as solid (at least I've noticed that on some sets).

I am not a big tweaking guy so the Panny is on top but that is out of the box on "custom mode". Samsung had to be dialed in out of the box after the first shot.

Why is the Panasonic so washed out? The whites are bleeding in the picture with the logo. Brendan Fraiser looks totally over exposed in that picture. It seems a little ridiculious.

One question as I have always been looking to a plasma, but I like these. How would this set do with 24p playback and xbox 360 gaming?

Thanks for the pictures!

Holy moly, the picture with the two actors looking so much better on the Samsung.
Much more details, crisp and more natural looking.

For example the texture of the jacket. On the plasma, there is no realy texture on the right shoulder.
On the B7100 the texture are much better.

OK Luxia LED, come to Germany.

The Samsung was super washed out until I turned the back light almost off. Like I said the Panasonic is out of the box in custom mode, where I had to fiddle with the Samsung to make it look good.

Does it matter ? I think it is $3899.
