NetFlix only supports 2.0 on stream.

Even through my Xbox on optical it's 2.0 and I use PLII to matrix it.

It's an 8" with a passive radiator.

I used to sell these at Fry's, I don't think they're very good.

Easily localized, and don't dig deep at all, even their 12".

I'd pass.

See if you can find a V10 from last year, might still be possible.

Or a G10 even.

Fact is, even after the rise, the shadow detail is still going to be better with Panasonic.

Do you have any light sources behind your TV?

I've seen light come through the rear ventilation holes and make a couple light spots on my set when it was turned off.

If you're a huge gamer and don't have HDMI, get the official VGA cable and hook it up to a Panasonic.

From what I've heard, VGA has the lowest latency for gaming on these sets.

For all of those with 7 red blinking lights, disconnect the power from your TV before you try to adjust and power back on again.

Sorry, I like to sit a bit closer than most people.

I'm about 8' from my 58V10, and I actually couldn't stand sitting farther back because I'd lose detail.
