Our 60PK750 was delivered Friday, so here's a few brief comments (coming from 5 years of watching a 720p ISF calibrated 50" DLP):
In THX mode, the colors and detail are amazing. We watched HP:GOF, Serenity and King King in 1080p and I am completely satisfied. Color, Detail, and yes, even black level. Certainly other displays may have better numbers, but the 750 is excellent to my eyes. The space shots in Serenity were detailed and lovely. Any "lack of black level" was hardly noticeable to my audience. YMMV. I have not tried the Cnet suggested settings yes, but might just for giggles.
I was actually waiting to by a large LCD, and we looking at the Sony x700. I really like that picture, and regardless of what the measurebaters claim, Sony does good color. However, the price difference between the x700 and 60PK750 was almost a grand in 60", IMHO hardly justified, picture-wise.
We also looked at the Sulu-box: Sharp's Quad-thingy. BB had every display option turned on, the there were serious image processing errors....turning off the anti-judder and "enhancements" fixed the picture, but again the display was hardly worth a $G+ over a similar plasma.
I can't wait to wall-mount it, and the savings over an LCD will go toward the wireless HDMI box and a decent surround system. It's a good looking cabinet. Audio-wise, I'm a little underwhelmed...but I have not had a chance to perform a proper set-up.
