I picked my PRO-151FD today. After watching a couple of the Planet Earth Blu-rays (I plan on starting the break-in dvd soon, but couldn't resist) I am left amazed. This is my first Kuro and it is head and shoulders above anything I've ever experienced. I had the same sort of visual epiphany tonight that I remember experiencing when I first saw HD content in 2004. The depth of the image is remarkable and breathtaking.
I can't wait to continue to read here and learn about how I should tweak my settings, but the image right out of the box is stunning. I am a really anal and particular person, and I can say without a doubt that this display lives up to all it's hype and then some.
Just some little observations:
I thought the display was packaged very well, extremely reinforced. I can understand the larger sizes being more prone to breakage, but it would still have take a pretty significant hit, imo.
Putting the sticker on the bezel is dumb. It's like saying, "here, have some adhesive residue to clean off your tv right away." Not a big deal, just funny to me on such a nice tv.
The remote, while long, is very nice. Brushed aluminum face with red backlighting.
Haven't played with optimum mode, yet. I watched in movie and standard. I lack the technical prowess that many here have, but I can't wait to try some settings from DNice and others. If the picture is this good right away, I can't even imagine the possibilities. This is by far the most 3D image I have ever witnessed.
