So all I hear about as a con for the TV is viewing in light. That I shouldn't have it in a bright room or else I'll barely see the picture Unfortunately I do not know what my TV room will look like as I am currently looking for apartments. However, Amazon has a great deal on the Panny ST60 right now. Sorta in a bind here. I'll know more about my apartment soon, but until then I don't want the sale to end. That's pretty much the limit of my budget for a new TV right now (~$1000)
So really my only gripe with not purchasing the TV already is the negative reviews it gets in a bright room. So is it unfounded or is it really that bad?
I'll be watching sports, movies (bluray and Netflix), playing video games, and I'll have my laptop connected to this screen. Is it a good screen for all those listed?
Thank you for your help, it's greatly appreciated!
Also, how necessary / expensive is it to get this TV professionally calibrated? Is it something I can do myself with some device?
One more thing, how is the input lag? I will be gaming on this beast, both PC and console. Is it noticeable? I usually can spot video that's out of sync with the audio and it's incredibly annoying, but is it that bad with gaming?
