If you think the 650 is better than the 800U you need to lay off the crack pipe. Yes the Pioneers are leagues ahead of the Panasonics (and way ahead LCDs) but Panasonics are still better than the 650 especially if you want to bring the 800U into the discussion. S-PVA LCDs suck, I'll never buy a Samsung LCD as long as they keep using that garbage technology. As for the Panasonics being overrated I'm sure every home theater magazine was wrong and you were right, not to mention the millions of satisfied owners
I hear that a lot from the LCD forum is that gospel over there now? Whatever makes you guys feel better
One thing Samsung will never fix is the inherent problems of LCD/PVA technology the viewing angles will always be bad, the gamma will always shift and the screen will never be uniform, oh and there will always be input lag. The only type of LCD that has a chance against plasma are IPS panels, which ironically Panasonic uses on their small TVs.
