Aside from the dirty screen effect, my 5020 is the best tv I have ever seen next to the Elite. I originally went in to purchase a Panny PZ800, but the sales rep cut me a huge deal on the 5020 and for just about $250 more than the PZ800 he told me I was crazy not to take it. He was right, so I took it. With the DSE problem on the 5020 he told me I could swap it out for the PZ800 but I can't bring myself to doing that. I went back in and looked at the PZ800 and it is inferior (though the next best tv to the 5020 at this time). When I first started my tv search, I looked at various LCD, plasmas, etc. and I remember being wowed in the beginning by the Samsung and LG plasmas. After having the 5020 for over a month now, I popped into a store and they were playing Hellboy II on blu-ray through the top of the line LG plasma, and it looked like crap compared to how the movie looks on my 5020, no comparison whatsover, the 5020 blows it out of the water.
That said, the only tv I would consider swapping it out for would be the new Panny TC-P50V10, I am waiting for reviews and comparisons to the 5020 once it is released. PENDRAG0ON, if you can't get another Pioneer, the TC-P50V10 is the one I would suggest you look at when it is released in May.
