Gotta say, this tv keeps getting better looking everyday. Just got the usb to serial cable to dial settings in a bit with ControlCal.

Also ended up hooking the speaker and big improvement since i dont have to see those "chicken legs". Someone had mentioned that the two extra holes were for the speakers and i can assure you that they are not. With the speaker attached, the extra hole on each leg is still not used. I still think that they are for lowering the tv more but until I have an answer I wont be complaining/commenting on that anymore.

So far in two weeks, the tv's picture is just stunning on BluRay. Dvd's look good enough but this baby was meant for HD. I guess pretty much every tv made these days is.

There is absolutely no buzzing or unwanted sound coming from the tv. TV speaker is on but wires arent connected so dont know how that sounds and dont care.

Call of Duty in game mode is exceptional. Movie mode was getting my ass handed to me but i dont know if thats because i haven't played in awhile and had to get the feel of the game again. Going to try Rockband on movie and game modes later this week to see if any lag is present.

Anyone still deciding on picking one up should not hesitate. I thought the 60 would have been too much, especially seeing them bring the box in through the door. Now after a week on its stand and set-up, I can honestly say I made the right choice. Heck now I can't picture anything smaller. Maybe in another 5 years a 80" might be needed.

Only thing is that whatever I was doing on the ps3, my first hdmi (input 4), shows some funky over saturated colors when playing a game or my wife puts on a workout dvd. Bluray looks fine. ??? I thought it was the tv but when i hooked it up to my older tv, the same thing happened. I moved it to input 5 and everything is fine with all sources again.

Later everyone. What a great tv

Just wanted to let you guys know that I snagged a new 6020FD at the local BB for 2899. Apparently, a bunch of BBs have them in stock, but it only shows up in their computers, not the web site.

My LG 60PK750 will be on its way back in the next few days and I've got a new 6020FD on its way. I absolutely can't wait!

I tried and tried to find one in my area but in the end had to go to eBay. Ended up paying quite a bit more than the poster above me (especially with freight shipping) - but I feel like it'll be worth it.

$1200.00. Interesting that I never had a buzz issue on my 151, but the 5020 definately has a buzz! Oh well, It is an amazing picture. I figured I would rather own a used pioneer than a new panny.

Good choice and I would of done the same . Sorry to hear of the buzz though .I thought it was mostly the Elite buts guess it can happen to either one. I got lucky my 6020 is whisper quiet as a matter of fact my old Panny 65 v10 wasnt as quiet as my 6020 is . Nice score on the price though 1200 is a steel .

Got a question regarding the TS02 stand for the Pioneer 50 in monitors. When I got my stand I was missing some of the M8 x 40 and the M8 x 15 screws. Pioneer wants 30 dollars for replacement screws. Which seem a bit much. Is there anyway I can just pick these screws up at Home Depot or ACE?

The Buzz isn't bad, it is just more pronounced than my elite. It is not noticable during normal viewing. I did steal it! Right place right time and I was quick to pull the trigger.

Don't be so sure the buzz isn't an actual problem, my 5020FD was almost silent for the first 11 months and has just started buzzing when started up, I have a service call on it this week, I'll let the thread know what gets replaced.

Please keep us posted So far my 6020 as I mentioned is very quiet and after the 1 year pioneer warranty I have a 4 year on top of that so that helps take the worry out of it so i'll just enjoy it for now and that I am

Shawn is totally down to earth and he taught me so much that just talking with him was priceless. If you live in the Kansas City area, I live in Hays Kansas, you would be a fool to hire anybody else. Highly reccomended!!

Thought I would post some wonderful comments from Mr. Redding in this thread regarding his recent calibration. I must say, the result was stunning (shameless plug I know ). Best wishes!

600M just turned off. At 1st it blinked 6 times, now after a power cycle it blinks twice. How long do repairs take? Do the 600Ms have power supply issues?

I'm not happy....
