The set itself is drop dead gorgeous and I love all the new wifi/internet bells and whistles. I tried to make myself like it but even my wife commented on the issues I mentioned and she never had a word to say about the 7 year old Pio plasma so...
Anyway, just thought I'd issue a warning to those like myself that are considering buying the set site unseen...
I had a pioneer Elite pro 101 on the wall where the new Sony now sits.
The picture on the new Sony and the pro 101 are close straight on but from angles and sides there is no comparison.
Although it seems to be better that usual for off angles on this newer sony. Of angles are much more acceptable to me , on this set.
With the new set I got some free downloads for the PS3 games. Very cool and worth checking out. We got this mainly for the 3D and mainly because this is our family room where the kids watch cartoons and energy consumption is an issue as well.
I have not regrets going from a Pioneer Plasma to this new Sony. I still have an elite Plasma in my bedroom and downstairs.
Bottom line this set came in 4th place at the HDTV shootout a couple weeks ago and did very well post calibration.
I will post my settings when Dnice comes to my house to calibrate this set and install the ISF modes.
