It's not much more than the Pio 6070 and it seems to satisfy all your needs.
Actually a great suggestion, as well as the one from itigap...
But the reason we don't go with a commercial panel is we both enjoy having a full TV and we don't wall mount, at least not in our present location. She likes the convenience of casually watching TV on our present set without the HT (it has great sound). That's why I run both CC and DVR to the same set...and will do so with any future sets. It comes in very handy when the local Comcast screws the pooch with some regularity. There are times I get things on the card that are missing from the box and vice versa. Other times the box gets locked up and won't respond to the remote until it wants to...getting better though.
I always have say over these matters...but I want her to enjoy it too...like other things in life...if you get my drift. If a man hasn't learned this after 30 years of marriage he's never going to...
Besides, I have some reservations as well. I know why people like the look...I just think it works better when wall mounted...as would any reflective, mirror-like
surface...rather than sitting lower on a credenza. To my eye it's just meant to look like eye candy when the set is off. The question isn't simply one of Black vs. Silver though. I like matte black and just wished we saw it more with Plasma instead of LCD.
I am strongly considering the 58PX600U...but really like the processing and feature set of the Pios.
I will say it is amazing how many pics are posted with very little reflection showing on the Pio, Samsung, etc. bezel and yet I it hits me every time I see them at the stores no matter the lighting environment.
