The VT & ZT are the same panel, so any perceived & reported difference in IR is purely anecdotal.

IR is present in the TV because it's a plasma. Some plasma models are worse than others, but a technician isn't going to be able to fix IR. I don't suspect the green tint will be addressed either,...

Well if they did it successfully then good for them. I just have a hard time understanding how it could be done without in-room assistance. But like you said, I guess I have to "hear it to believe...

I mean the front stage of the GE soundbar. If 3 channels are within the span of 62" or so and you're let's say 10 feet away, they're hardly providing an experience of 3 discrete channels are they? ...

I can see how this might work well at, say, 4 feet, but if the 3 channels are all in front of you rather than to the side it's not really surround sound is it?

Looks like IR to me. Contrast is relatively low, so your settings don't appear to be contributing to the problem. Not much you can do about it short of not watching subtitled content and wait it...

There's zero risk if the tech is aware or the service bulletin & installs the back cover correctly. Regardless, I'm not sure if Panasonic is even sending out kits anymore. It was a while ago but the...

"Temperamental" implies it's unpredictable. From what I've noticed this TV is no more or less predictable than any other TV. That a small percentage of units fail to perform to spec shouldn't...

I watched the Criterion Blu-ray earlier this year. It was fun. Much more serious than the various iterations I remember as a kid. I saw the latest Godzilla movie. It was awful in so many ways.

I really love those JL Fathoms. However, if I were downsizing to 2 channels I'd go with speakers that go low enough to render a sub unnecessary (or, more appropriately, less than necessary). The...

I'd opt for the ZT over the F8500 if they're the same price because the ZT is, on the whole, a better TV. However, for my use and in my opinion, it's not $1,400 better. I'd get the Samsung. See if...

$2,500 for the 64" F8500 is a pretty good price and is IMO the best TV you can get at that price point. Curved TVs aren't my thing so I wouldn't look twice at one but, even if it were flat, paying...
