Plasma meant to be watched in a dark room.
For all I care the bezel could be pink, but when watched in a dark room (as it should) it looks completely black.

I just bought a replacement US Main Board: Main Board, to replace my brand new 200 Hours European one.

EU ST60 Main board (A) lacks the option to select "Dark Level: Light/Dark", 48Hz/60Hz/96Hz at 24p (no options, natively 96Hz), and no 96Hz with 3D mode only 100Hz & 120Hz.
I just hate the phosphor trails at 96Hz (24p), I want the 48Hz and 60Hz modes.
As 50Hz flicker does't bother me so will 48Hz not, we are used to it from the old CRT days.

Also we have funky names to the settings like "Ambient Sensor" instead of C.A.T.S.
We have only 3 temperatures to select: Cool,Normal,Warm instead of the 5 US has.
The positive that it accepts 50Hz natively whether the US does not, or does it?

As the Main Board receives standard voltages (5v, 15v, 3.3v, Vsus, Vda) from the power board (110v or 230v), it does not matter what Power board the TV has.
All other boards like the SS, SS2, SC, SU, SD, C, are exactly the same (same part number) as they are just drivers for the plasma panel.

Stay tuned, I'll post how the operation went through.

And since our previous Panny panels were not ugly looking hanging on the wall, didn't think about that possibility. I learned long ago that you can't really look/judge a TV screen or panel itself at a Best Buy with bright lights and the panel set on vivid.
IF this had been in our 1st (more "upscale" home) would not have kept it. Sorry I did keep it. Like I said, had the feeling from reviews - THIS was the set to get.
Fortunately, there's an option for you to use. Don't know the website, but there's a company that makes beautiful portrait frames designed to fit your TV model covering the bezel area. If that doesn't dress-up that bezel edge for you, then nothing will suffice.
