Good pics, actually. The first one of Hawkeye shows off the impressive picture. I am a Panasonic S60 owner, but I like the F5300 and other Samsung plasmas. Congratulations on picking up a nice set,...

I believe you are describing line bleed. It is inherent with plasma technology. I notice it less now, but it is always there.

It depends. Which size? The S64 came in two sizes. New? Used? Floor model? Individual? How many hours (details on how, see page 1)? How much are you willing to pay? I own the 65" S64, which I bought...

I like having a bias light, too. Perhaps the forums upgrade this year broke the images, but a lot of owners were posting images of their sets, which is how I came across the bias light idea. Having...

Ultimately, you need to make the call, but I would definitely go for a 60" over a 50" set if you have the space for the larger TV. I consider the improvements in the ST60 small enough that I wouldn't...

The ST60, while it is a phenomenal TV, isn't worth the extra $700 at the same screen size in my opinion unless you absolutely want 3D, which the S60 does not offer. The ST60 also has the louvre...

I would look at the Samsung plasmas, or watch out for other used TV deals if that is your thing (I also love a great deal). 17,000 hours is a lot, so I would not purchase that TV. To me, that is not...

Isn't this true of all of the Sony BDPs, even since last year, perhaps even prior? From first-hand experience I can tell you that I returned the BX510 (same as the 2013 S5100) to Sam's Club because...

U-verse receivers output RGB, not YCbCr, as I understand it. It's possible you might need to adjust the TV and/or receiver to prevent the blacks from being crushed. I have a 2013 Panasonic, and for a...

My local HH Gregg still has an ST60! 65"! The salesman told me it was a floor model, not a return, so it definitely has a lot of hours on it. I didn't have the remote and I chose not to use the menu...

I just found an open box 60" F8500 at the local HH Gregg for $1439. Man, if I hadn't bought my 65" S64 last year, I might have jumped on it. But they also had a floor model ST60 that was very...

I think this is good advice. If you sit off-angle, and you like plasma, which you appear to, then go to a retailer that carries the Samsung plasmas to see them for yourself. Yes, the F8500 is a great...

Likewise. I have preferred Warm 1 over Warm 2, which is a bit too warm. You'll notice that on Warm 1 the whites are more white, whereas on Warm 2 they can often look "dirty" by comparison. With...
