I've had my 60PS11 for about two weeks now, I've been using the TV with my PS3 to play games stream movies from my PC.
While I must say I didn't clock that many playing/watching hours, I've been very satisfied with the TV so far. I'm not quite done tweaking and testing the TV but so far, so good.
Blacks are pretty black - not as black as i was lead to expect from a plasma (but that might be an incorrect setup on my part), colors are great (especially since i'm keeping the brightness low in the first 100 hours as a precautionnary measure), response time is great, games and videos are silky smooth and sharp. It's all good... except for the sound. Depending on the source the sound ranges from acceptable to plain lousy - in some movies I haven't been able to adjust the sound correctly to hear the voices ok (with or without the "Clearvoice" thingy enabled)
Those invisible speakers are best left turned off - can't wait to connect my home theater. Other than that, very happy with my purchase.
If you're curious, here are the stuff I tried and some comments.
Mirrror's Edge.... Jumping from building to building on that monster makes for a very immersive experience!
PixelJunk Eden.... beautiful and extremely smooth - and that game runs in native 1080p so it's ultra-sharp
Terminator 2 (Director's cut 1080p) - niiiiiiiiice... lots of black scenes in that flick - the black levels are very deep and well rendered by the TV.
The only thing i've noticed is that most black scenes are not perfectly black (if I look at the tv very closely i can still see some slight dithering). But that might be the PS3 or the source contents, as the TV's menus are perfectly black with no dithering).
Didn't try any BluRays yet, will report when I do.
