well another noobie here
. I had a p50g10 up until today, bought it on Jan 29, returned to best buy today! my choice.
I was aware of the info from avs, the good reviews from cnet etc., and I'm pretty through. Thought, well, take a chance, best bang for the buck, great tv. now i have read almost every posting on this forum for less a month now, on the 11/12G models, high def forum, some tweak. Wow some great stuff. couple of you guys are right up there.
here's what i found with the tv. now i broke in the tv with d's slides, and his settings but i lowered the bright/cont to 70, 150 hrs, never let it run for over 8hrs at a time, then cool, that's my kookiness. now when everyone was trying to check the IB, mine did this. Vivid, turn off (no matter hot/cold) turn on, three step downs, then one step up. All other pic modes, when initiated, two steps down. So next i was aware of the 1.28 update, bought 25ft of ether-cable, tv confirmed my connection, then a box pops up stating server failed, tried it many time and days. now i call panasonic, and wait for twenty minutes, called next day same, on hold! never did talk to anybody.
i was keeping up on the saga, and hoping panny would be able to say something reassuring so i could keep this tv. my 30 days were up, couldn't or didn't need to take a gamble. I may have never seen the problem, but panny said " the voltage increase is meant but the future models will be adjusted accordingly" something to that effect
in my book that means "repaired"?
this g10 had a great pic but had only 200 hrs on it. no black issue, but the one in BB is gray. I will be waiting on D's 2010 review, and also cnets 12g testings.
Thanks for all this free info.
