Yeah, i'm sorry, i just re-read it, and i was wrong, it was late at night when i was making that post.
Anyway, i think D-Nice has already said that he has seen proof of a MLL rise in the G20's, so it's there allright.
Even if takes some time, the PK950 is still going to have a much better black level than the G20.
I was a panny lover myself, had a G10, which i had to return (it turned itself off, and wouldnt turn on again), so i got a G15 as a replacement.
Loved the set, the blacks, PQ, no image retention whatsoever, net features! And then it hit me, first rise: Slap one: It wasn't bad, still ok black, but again, slap two: No i was getting worried, i hope it doesn't get any worse, slap THREE!
My black level had tripled, and i got some nice image retention, lots of it. Couldnt leave my tv on a channel for more than one minute before it got IR, that was never a problem before.
I would get a Panasonic, but not with their rising blacks, no way! In that case i need a VT25, so at least i know that it will only triple from .002 to .006, but the VT25 cost is too expensive.
I'm probably getting a great deal through my brother, so i can get a PK950 for the same price as i was going to give for the PK550.
I've gotten a refund for my G15, so all i am waiting for is to find the right tv, if he can fix it, i will get the PK950. No more Panasonic for me (unless they remove that stupid volt adjustment bug).
