The concern about brightness is simply because it is the other side of the "contrast ratio" equation. I love having excellent blacks and feel that the majority of newer plasma's do very well in that...

Interestingly, no, I have never seen them fully calibrated, wish I had the opportunity to. I just recently saw a fellow members VT60, I was fairly impressed, it wasn't as dim as I remember the ST60 I...

Vegeta, I am glad you brought that up, about the 30% dimmer estimate, I had also concluded that the last generation Panasonic's were just too dark for my eyes. I rarely ever get a chance to watch...

^ Lol..love this. It is impressively bright and a not well acknowledged plasma set. To be honest I wasn't expecting anything noteworthy when I bought it, having my Pioneer Kuro in the main room, so I...

I understand the 35ft.L goal. While I feel that it is important to adhere to some standard, my eyes prefer a bit more punch, even though I can certainly appreciate a 30-35ft.L image.

In no way am I looking for a LED-LCD plasma analog (in terms of brightness), it just so happens that this VP422, and some of the older Plasmas really can do it. I keep my Vizio at 53 contrast, 40...

Plasma brightness, then and now

I was considering the brightness of PDP technology over the years, I currently own a 9G Kuro (5020) and an old Vizio VP422, not even sure whose glass is in the Vizio. Anyway, the Pioneer is actually...

I wasn't saying anything disparaging about the 51f5300B, just that I am guessing that many retail stores are unlikely to replace their floor models until they know the item is going to be deleted,...

Looking for 60" Plasma

So I just picked up a Pioneer 5020, love this set, looks almost like a CRT to my eyes. The problem is that well, this Plasma is not a 60" and I really feel that that is the ideal size for immersion...

To the OP, I wonder if the 5300 you saw at BB was an older "A" model. It seems highly unlikely that they would remove the first display model they received with the same model TV (save for the B...

Not a good argument...true, I wasn't arguing, it was more of a rant, or venting of sorts. I still own HD CRT's for the PQ over LCD and Plasma. Obviously, I prefer plasma to LCD and 34" of HD CRT PQ...
