Oh man, oh man, oh man. Was at my local Best Buy. Wasn't even expecting it (was there for something else) turned the corner and BHAM, there was the 6070 in all its glory. It was like a moment from a movie. I almost hugged the thing. My wife stayed at the store for an hour watching it, watching other sets. Sales people kept coming up to ask us if we were sure we didn't need anything.
Compared this bad boy with a lot of other TVs. Guys, I am not a video expert by any means, but oh my God this set is gorgeous. The picture was stunning, simply stunning. All sets around it were playing the same loop, various clips, plus the living sea clip, and other stuff. I was able to compare this 6070 with the Panasonic, Samsung and a few other brand names around it (the 6070 was dead center of all the others). This set won hands down on everything and was better then any set around it. Color was eye poppingly good. Blacks, incredible, detail out of this world. Didn't play with any settings, just watched. I could see so much more detail in the 6070 then any other set around it. Some of the scenes, I could see detail in the distance (i.e. fish swimming, etc.) that I couldn't see in other sets. The black around the TV was stylish and non-distracting (unlike the Panasonic).
I can't say enough about how great this TV looked, I was SOOOO impressed, exceeded my expectations. My wife kept asking me (and she is even less a video person then I am) why does it look so much better then that one or that one and she would be like, look, you can see the details of the trees on that island but not on that other TV.
Kudos Pioneer, gorgeous set. If there were any doubts lingering between the two sets in my mind, that is now gone for good. Its Pioneer all the way.
