Hi All and Happy Holidays to the true "Pioneers" in plasma ownership!
I still have my PRO 910 HD, but it's got a ton of hours on it and it has developed a bad spot in the center of the panel. - Kind of lightbulb shaped and about 1/2 the height of the screen in the upper center.
On light backgrounds like skies, you can really see it. Also starting to see breakdown in the faces that move into that area, blotchy dark green pixilation, usually ends up right in the middle of someones face.
Otherwise... still a beautiful picture, but I have always been less than satisfied with the back levels on these earlier gen panels.
I have this mounted above my fireplace (rarely used, please on't ask if that caused the problem) and have the 10 meter umbilical run up the facia of the fireplace thru the ceiling and back down in the wal to the side going into a media rack that holds the media box, receiver, DVD etc...
It's a perfect arrangement for my area.
Not wanting to alter the cable and location of the panel or receiver set-up, I bought a PRO 930 HD (last of the Media Box models) on eBay, it arrived yesterday.
I can just swap out th epanel and media box - no muss or fuss...
I am curious about your thoughts on the PQ difference between the 2 sets. Any comments?
Also on a spec sheet I saw, this was called "Kuro PRO-930HD". Is this really the 1st gen KURO?
Will try to set them up side-by side and post pics when I get the time this weekend.
Also, I want to check the hours on both sets - Can anyone tell me how to do that?
