Just so everyone remembers, I'm one of those that flicker drives NUTS. When people still had CRTs at their desks, I would have to change refresh rates for co-workers that were on 60hz, because it would drive me crazy. I see the flicker on every static screen on the new plasma, but when watching a movie I don't see it at all. In fact, if anything it's more like being AT the theater than my LCD was. Since my plasma will see 99% of its use for movies, I am not concerned about it. In fact, I'm loving it. We watched over 10 hours of movies yesterday (hey, it was a rainy Sunday) and I have to say we are in love with the PQ of this set.
