1. The "Model" you have.
2. What convinced you to purchase this particular "Model".
Reading what all the different people had to say here at AVSforum. I consider this a good, trustworthy, neutral site for finding helpful information without a bias toward "selling" you on one model or another. Sure, you read the Panny thread or the Pio thread or the NEC thread, and folks in each rave about their panels. BUT, they are also honest and straight forward enough to admit when they are having a problem with their display and seek advice. Everyone's experiences that I read about in those threads, as well as talking to some salespeople at BB, CC, AV stores, etc, helped me to decide on the NEC. The PQ and electronics from what I've read are right up there with Pio and Panny and so far have had fewer reported problems (according to the threads I read). Not interested in stirring things up. Just noticing what I read.
3. What you like best about your Plasma.
That it is finally in my house!! Watching DVD's on it, Stadium mode for SD viewing, 3yr waranty
4. What you don't like about your Plasma.
Hoped SD viewing would be better. Stadium mode makes SD viewing decent, but I was getting greedy and hoped it would be better. Looking forward to more HD content
5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your Plasma had.
A tuner so I wouldn't have to rely on a STB for that. But I like the DVR thing, so I need the extra box anyway.
6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacture" about your Plasma.
Make them more accessible to consumers to see in person to compare to others.
7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your Plasma.
That I can't believe I spent over 3K on a TV !!
That my Omnimount CL-L cantilever wall mount with a UAL universal adapter plate actually supported the 97lb beast without sagging in the fully extended position.
8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your Plasma.
None yet. Still trying to get used to where the all the settings are located and what the heck they all do. Also, trying to "smooth" the trasition from dark color areas to lighter colors in certain scenes.
9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.
Not quite. Another 500 to 1000 cheaper would have been more fathomable. But sometimes you just have to live it up.
10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.
Now I think need to upgrade my DVD player, move from SD to HD Dish, condition the power... aauughhh! When does it stop?!?
Jamie at Invision Technologies (aka plasmaconnection.com) was very helpful when I bought my plasma from her. She made sure I had considered things I hadn't previously thought of before giving my "final decision" to purchase it.
