I've owned this set since 10/08. I think the performance is acceptable for a 3-4 yr old 1080p set. I paid $800, it was on sale at Target.
Some PS3 games get jagged lines with quick camera panning or rapid movements. I assume that this is due to the refresh rate of this older set. I have tried a number of different picture configurations to correct this, but to no avail.
One problem that I do have is that from time to time, maybe twice per month, I will turn the set on and the lamp/picture will not turn on. The sound, however, does. By powering the set off then powering it on once again, the problem is corrected. I was wondering if anyone had this issue. I am reluctant to install the firmware that I found today (there was a previous post about it on this forum).
