Just my two cents, but manufactures put too much emphasis on resolution anyway. Not enough attention is focused on specifications like contrast and black levels, which have a more significant impact...

You make a good point, but if Panasonic believed that the typical S60 buyer was willing to invest in a top notch pro calibration, ( I'm not talking about the BB Geek Squad here:D) they probably would...

I think what you have to take into consideration is, they don't have the time to calibrate these sets to reference levels like Chad, D-Nice and David does. Many on-line reviews are aimed at consumers...

Netflix is still a better alternative for me. Redbox is $2.14 now, including NJ sales tax. With the a 2 out at a time BD plan, each disc nets me a cost of $1.87. They're mailed to my door and I can...

Show me data that compares the two sets using the same calibration report. Many reviewers do their measurements using the Ansi checkaboard test pattern, which IMO is the most accurate because it's...

I haven't any issues with basketball games either. I rarely watch hockey though. A factory reset should not effect service menu settings.

You would think they would set up their system so you could use your own equipment. With Cablevision I'm using my own router and I also have the option to supply my own modem.



Of course...

Well they finally removed 'Super' in the HD designation on my Panasonic S60 TV. Still haven't removed the 'SD' when showing the 1080p format when I check the streaming info.

That was my point as well. There is no set standard for measurement. Also, these sets are entry level and I don't see many spending the time or money having them calibrated to reference levels. When...

Where are you getting these measurements from? Since there are variations in standards for measurement, you need to compare results from the same source/calibrator.





Not sure exactly...

Just to follow up:

I output my Panasonic DMP85 player at 24p and haven't had any issues with the S60. It actually looks cleaner then outputting it to 60. Same goes for my older Panasonic C2.
