hi eh. i've been so focused on getting the "worst case' pix that i don't think i've included enough photos of how we actually see it -- that is, turned a few degrees away from the window. will post some more pix later today, if i get a chance; tomorrow, if not.
plus, i don't know what your viewing sitch is, but, in our case, there are 8 windows on three sides of the room. most of the windows are normal height, but those big south-facing ones are 6 feet tell. this time of year (april), when the trees aren't out yet, sunlight streams in, flooding the entire room.
we have no experience with plasma before this tv, but we have been delighted with the way the way this tv blocks glare. reserve disappointment until you see some more shots. i was trying to hard to be honest, but i think maybe i went overboard.
