Blade,
The gray I'm talking is the dark gray that represents the lowest output state for a plasma panel, which should ideally be black. I've stood in my local Tweeter and BB/Magnolia watching their...

I saw one at a Tweeter Sunday just after they hung it below an Elite 930. With an inhouse HD server 1080i source and out of the box settings, I didn't think it looked any better than the smaller...

I just looked at the recording I made Tuesday, and 480p is MUCH blurrier than 720p which is slightly softer than 1080i on my Fujitsu P50. Live yesterday, my HD200 was sharper than the Tivo.
