Seriously now, people have been playing and practicing SF3 on GGPO and Supercade for YEARS and they can parry online. If you can parry online, then you can parry offline on a display with 2 to 3 frames of lag. You guys are taking this so far out of proportion.
Had some time to pop in a Blu-ray. Game mode for sure turns off 24 fps mode. So my advice is, set up the TV under Custom settings, turn as much stuff off and put game mode on, and calibrate. Use that for any usage like PC or gaming, or regular TV watching. Set up Cinema mode, turn as much stuff off, turn game mode off, turn 24 fps on and set it to whatever you desire. Calibrate. Use Cinema for watching film. Then you just swap between the two picture modes rather than having to go in menu to turn on/off options based on the content you watch. It's easier much that way, especially with stuff like game mode buried under a bunch of sub-menus. I wouldn't bother with the other 3 picture modes since they disable the pro calibration settings.
As for the TV being in a light room: I have a window with see through curtains on it, so light does hit the TV. On my UT50 before I took it back it was noticeable during the daylight. Off angle window lighting wasn't so bad, I never noticed any light from the window 90 degrees from it, but I could see the window across it reflected in the picture. It wasn't really bad and the TV still had pop to it. The ST60, however, almost completely filters out the light from the window with see through curtains. It looks great during the day time, and I'm really surprised because I hated the filter on my Sony CRT and ended up removing it and controlling the light during the day time. The filter on the ST60 is good, and it doesn't soften the image at all, everything is pixel clear.
Besides the minor input lag, which isn't really as bad as I thought it could be, I couldn't be happier. Oh, but one thing I don't like about it, and I noticed it on other plasmas, is the ghosting on fast horizontal moving objects. That actually gets on my nerves, and I wish I knew how to get rid of it. Don't really tend to notice it during 3D, but in 2D mode it really pops out at times.
