Thanks everyone for all the info!! Very helpful. I'm running the slides so I can use D-Nice's settings, after following his instructions. I'm following his instructions TO THE LETTER-EXACTLY. I just thought I would do it to get the best pic. possible. What can it hurt? I've been following this forum for the last few months, and D'Nice seems to have a good rep. with everyone, so I decided to give it a try.We loaded the slides with my mother-in-law's windows pc, and it's going great now. I still have my older 07 Panny 720 model in the main room, my new one is in the office running the slides, so the family can still watch tv...I ordered my 55ST30 on April 16, to get the free Skype camera, but the tv was backordered, so I just got it yesterday. I'm so excited!! It's beautiful, and I can't wait to check out some B-Ray!! I thought most of us here would agree that D'Nice knows what he's talking about...Am I wrong? I thought that advice from a Certified Calibrator about settings and panel prep. on this new model, that he recently tested and calibrated, would be advice that I would be OK with. So you guys think D'Nice is full of s*** or what? Any more info. or ideas are welcome. Thanks again!!
