Hi there,

This post is a second chapter to the post here:

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1491128/replacing-my-pioneer-6010fd-sniffle-sniffle-could-use-a-little-help

where I discuss the repairs to my 6010FD. Admins - my bad for starting a new thread? Should I delete and merge?

My service contract provider will replace my 6010FD with either of these two chickens:

Sony KDL60EX645
Samsung UN60F6300

Quite plainly, these options won't do. While the basic spex match up - they're both 1080P and 60-inch, I am having trouble coming up with data to prov that these are probably not equivalents. How do you "prove" that the blacks in the 6010FD were mind-blowing, or that every subcomponent in the panel was top-of-the line. Any advice on helping my provider think otherwise?

I am considering suggesting one of these as an alternative:

Panasonic TC-PZT60
Samsung UN55ES 8000 Series

That's all I got.

Thanks!

Paul

Without a doubt those are not equal to your 6010. I would suggest a VT60 which will equal the 6010 (actually a little better blacks) in performance. That may be easier for them to accept based on price vs. the ZT. ZT may be a stretch - I could see that argument for an Elite. You could also look into the Samsung 8500, but again based price try the Panasonic VT60 - in the 60 inch size of course. Let us know how things go - I would also like to know the warranty you have so I can avoid it (maybe).

I am so dissapointed. They just offered the Samsung PN60F5500. The protection plan is from DirecTV, which I have found very good to work with. Their service provider is the problem. I think I will call DirecTV. They seem to be be trying to match spex, but all they get back are "value" units. Unbelievable. Oh, the FMV for my panel is $850.
