Pros: Vibrant color and deep black
I purchased this in 2006 and had to buy the HDMI module to plug into it. This is a monitor without the ability to connect directly to cable because it doesn't have a tuner. Since I've always had a cable box, I was able to put more money into the picture, rather than paying for a tuner I would never use. Total cost at the time was close to $3,000. That said, people still look at my TV and ask if it's new because the color is so clear and vibrant. I did buy a cd to balance the color, contrast, and sharpness so the conditions are ideal for my room. We have it mounted in a room that is 17 x 14 with many windows. There is nothing better than movies or supporting events. When I replace this monitor, I'll be looking for a Panasonic.
