Oh by the way, we just put up a G10 on our Home Theater wall, and I gotta say, my first impressions are mostly positive.
I immediately put it in Custom mode and ran the brightness up to 75%, just to see how it could hold its own against 4 52" LCDs in torch mode. Wow. It was clear where the other plasmas were on the wall from a distance (they were dimmer by far than the LCD - even though most of the plasmas were in torch mode too). As it was designed to do, the new Panasonic G10 does compare favorably against the LCDs in brightness.
At 75% Brightness, the blacks remained deep and strong, with no noticeable graying or dimming.
There was no noticeable artifacting that I could see. It was overall a very smooth picture.
In bright store light, it's almost impossible to give any more useful feedback.
