I want to speak to those who are considering this set, but have been discouraged by some of the issues mentioned in this thread.
That these issues exist and are disappointing to some is understandable, but for people like me, who are going from a Vizio 42" LCD to this set I am extremely satisfied.
Ratatouille is the most impressive so far. The scene where Emile and Remy are walking along talking with the mushroom and they walk past the old tractor...unreal, That "looking througha window" feeling that people talk about I get it now. Or right after they get hit by lightneing and they get all fuzzy. So insanly crystal clear, wow.
Completely uncelebrated on Cinema the image was very nice. Blacks are so deep and rich I am glad to be done with the lcd haze that I was living with. The blacks are so pure you can't see the bars when a dark scene is on, so nice. Bye-bye vizio! (Vizios are fine, don't get me wrong!)
Hot Shots never looked so good. Even at 720P I was very surprised at how much more I enjoy this game on this set. Honestly, at times you really feel like you are "in" the game. Fantastic, I look forward to more gaming, albeit light until the break-in period is over.
I noticed a tiny bit of IR after watching "I am Legend", but it went away very quick.
No buzzing, no issues at all really. I can't wait to calibrate it, I can't imagine a better picture.
So there is my plasma-noob report. If you are on the fence and are looking for a killer plasma at a sweet price point I say go for it.
My opinion....Simply stunning.
