Wanted to chime in, have not posted for a while. Got my TC-P60S30 delivered on Friday from BB. $899 plust tax, free delivery and 36 month 0% financing. I have to tell you, right out of the box the picture is awesome in Cinema mode. No blotches or lines. I watched Aerial America Hawaii on Smithsonian HD (DirecTV) and the picture was breathtaking. Watched some of the Pebble Beach Pro Am and again the picture was awesome eventhough there was not much sun. I noticed some of the colors on the golfers shirts were a little washed out but some future tweaking should take care of that. This is my first plasma, I have 3 Sammy LCD's that I like, and I was concerned after reading various posts that the panel was going to be too reflective for my liking. To my surprise, this is not the case. I find it to be no more reflective than my LCD's. As long as there is not a light directly behind me it is fine. Running the slides right now and was wondering if it is ok to interupt before the 100 hours to watch a little tv? After the 100 hours I will calibrate and post results.
