Hm, that picture looks pretty bad. But i've seen nothing like that on any Panasonic plasma ever and can't imagine it looks like that in person. Prepare to see it posted in every LCD v. plasma thread, though.
Wow, so Samsung's top-of-the-line 58" plasma costs less than their mid-line 52" LCD? Why do people buy LCDs again? Also their site shows a 30k:1 contrast ratio for the 550, but i could have sworn i checked it earlier and saw 15k or 20k:1. Am i going crazy, or did they change it to match the Panasonics'?
