The only thing keeping me from buying a plasma display is the inability of any mfr's set (Panny, Pioneer, Sammy...)to successfully display a white screen without it being dimmed.
I went to a BB Magnolia yesterday to once again look at numerous displays. All the sets were displaying a Planet Earth Blu-ray...the Plasmas...particularly the Pioneer Elite looked incredible on a scene with light shimmering off waterfalls in a dark cave. Beautiful!
The scene then shifted to one of a hawk catching small birds in mid-air.
The bright sky background on that scene looked very poor compared to the higher end LCD's sitting nearby. On the LCD's you could make out blue sky and white clouds...on the plasmas (pioneer included) the sky took on a dullish gray appearance.
I'm hoping the new panny's "brightness" will help this.
