Purchased a G10 yesterday evening. Been researching for 2 years. Always though I would purchase Panasonic, but by the time I pay the tax and get a warranty from a B&M I would have been $1500 higher. Reading all the forums and CNET reviews I decided this was worth trying out. The retailer I purchased from has 100% satisfaction guarantee. So I have no risk.
OK - the set.
Sound - My son (22) says he can hear it buzz, however, the only sound I hear in the room is my DISH Network DVR running, and a laptop in the corner. The set is virtually silent, no fan noise. As for the speaker sound.........well maybe I have been accustom to junk from an old 27" CRT, but the sound is amazing. The SRS effect does an adequate job of moving sound around the room. I suspect when I hook up my surround sound, I will be floored.
PQ - looks good so far, all I have is SD from the analog video jack from my old DISH DVR, and my 5 year old Sony DVD player (without up-convert) and 480i on the component video input. looks pretty good, but today I will get another up-convert like the one I have on my bedroom 27" LCD, with HDMI cable and an S-video cable for the DISH receiver (that's as good as it gets).
I'm set to movie right now allowing everything to break-in for a few weeks.
Is there a way to check hours used on this set?
I'll keep updating, but so far, so good.
