Thank you.

The same as the launch price.

"Networked Home Media Gallery for playback of digital assets such as HD movie, music and photos from a PC or via USB"
Does this mean that I can connect the TV to my router and play all those media files on the TV?

You mean they will be selling for MSRP? Or the discount level will be the same in 2 months as it when it launches?

Questions I'm hoping get answered next week:

What will be the energy consumption?
Will the home media gallery be any more mac compatible than last year?
How much brighter will these be?
If I ask nicely, will they give me back the cable card slot?

I'm probably the only one on this thread who is so ignorant, but could D-Nice or someone else fill me in on something? What is D-Nice's affiliation with Pioneer? Dealer or what?

Just curious, I'm relatively new to Pioneer threads.

Thanks.

People - please read the forum rules:

NO PRICE TALK OTHER THAN MSRP

I know it's really tempting and kind of a natural line of discussion, but it would be really nice if we could have a thread that the moderators don't lock because forum rules are being ignored...

Sorry for yelling.

It will be the same discount as when it launches. I fell into the "let's wait for the price to drop before I buy" mode last year. I waited and waited, expecting a Black Friday price. The prices didn't drop until very late in the calendar year. Then there was all of the talk of the newer models and...well, I still don't own an HD set.

This year, I plan to wait a few months after release to see how the sets perform, but I'm not gonna wait for the prices to drop. I'm getting older every minute. My doctor tells me that every minute I wait to buy, I'm that much closer to death.

Live now. Buy now. Enjoy now!

Nicely done Pioneer!

2 questions.

1. Will the 6020 still only have High/Med/Low temp settings?

2. Will there be any improvements to modes like smooth? I can see "stuttering" (or whatever you want to call it) on smooth (or even advanced) sometimes while watching blu-ray movies.

Thanks!

This is really going to be a tough decision for me. Save money with the 58" 800U panny or splurge and get the wicked Pioneer 60".

Panasonic TH-42PH9UK

I don't think those pics do the 9Gs justice. In most of those pics you can't tell a difference between the 8G and 9G (or even some of the other plasmas for that matter.

If they made a power supply change that corrects the buzz for 9G, I wonder if there will be a modified power supply made available for the 8G's to cure the problem...

Hi,
Please forgive the noob question. From what I understand, the difference between 141fd and 151fd is that the 141 cannot display over the air tv signals and does not have speakers. The rest of the specs are identical, and it will work with an STB (as long as run through surround sound). Is there something else I might be missing?
thanks in advance,
Danny
