First off, going from a Panasonic to a Pioneer has left me with no regrets at all, up until the release of the 6071 and the newer Pio models I would say that Panasonic always had the better picture quality but me thinks that has now changed with these new Pio's.
And I must say in the past years I have ALWAYS prefured the Panny's plasma picture to the Pioneer plasma's picture,,,, up until now.
Anyhow, sorry for the Panny digs, Im just still pissed at them for the silver thing.
The 6071 picture is to say the least stunning and when its turned off it still looks stunning.
HD channels get a big WOW and with my HD-DVD, jaw dropping would say it best.
My SD and digital cable channels look great as well.
I just cant think of anything I dont love about this plasma.
While sitting here writing this and looking at my new 6071 I had an odd thought, what would I own if the 6071 had not come out.
Since I have owned a few displays these would be my choices.
The current 65" commercial Panny plasma (I dont think the 58 inchers look that much better than the 65 inchers) and he current 65 inch Panny price is comming down,,,, (but we all know the upcomming new 1080 65" Panny plasma will be the one to have, I saw it at CES and it did rock).
If I did not have to have a plasma it would be the JVC 70" FH96, the set I returned a few months ago,,, WOW,,, that RPTV had the best picture I think I have ever seen on ANY display ever, I really do miss that TV, too bad it was to big for my room,,,,,,,,,, and its all black too.
If your on the fence between a plasma and a RPTV and you have the room, even though its only 16" deep, you all really need to check the JVC 70 incher out.
As a matter of fact just in case anyone thinks by my posting that Im playin the my Pio is better than your Panny game because I now own a Pio, let me say I dont play the mine is better game.
If ya all want to know what display has the best picture to be had right now (in my opinion) it would be the 70" 1080p JVC, and thats the one I no longer own.
Anyhow, just my thoughts, Im sure I will post more about the 6071 as I get to play with it more.
