Now that I am free from my Sammy, I do not want to rush into things. I want to make the right desicion.
The plot thickens- I also saw a 6020 all by itself and I must say that this thing had such a stop and stare picture. It was mesmorizing. I saw the 85u and it was nice, but you could absolutely see that red push for SURE. The pio 20 series seems to have nowhere near the adjustment capablities as the Panny. It is also about a thousand more than the 58 850u, but those blacks leave me salivating. Unfortunaley if i buy a panny it will be site unseen. I am gaga over the Pio, but the lack of adjustments scares me. Whould you pay the premium for the pio with less adjustmets juist to get those amazing blacks? Wouldnt i be able to get the set ISF calibrated anyway and that color innacuracies that cnet states be a moot point? thus I would have a superior blacks and a calibrated screen? Im back at square one. It is definitely between this 6020 from a forum sponser or the 58"850u. I am waiting on a check from samsung and I will not have to spend a single dime out of pocket, to get the sammy. I would have to sped another thousand to "upgrade" to the pio. I wish I could see the damn 850 in person. Does anybody have experience with both the 850 and 9g pio's? I will be disgusted if I buy the panny 850 and my blacks are not at least as good as my series 7 lcd. I do belive that the pio is on a whole diffferent level in the blacks. but then again, i have only compared the 6020 with the 85u via bluray. IN a nutshell, if the panny 850 has at least as good blacks as my samsung, who's blacks I am satisfied with, and has better color accuracy than the pio, than I don't think that the black as worht 1k. So how are the blacks compared between the series 7 samsung and the panny 850? Sorry for the rant.
