So I bought a 60 incher and am now among you. 0% for two years pushed me over the edge and apparently I received one of the last New Egg had because the day mine was shipped, their website pulled this model and it is now deactivated.
I am a little bit concerned about my 60 inch model being of the newer ZLHR
variety, which have been reported to have a serious color shifting issue that develops after some use.
I can only hope that I am lucky enough to avoid such an issue. It has been my experience that I always end up with a set that goes bonkers and develops a strange, nutso problem that ruins the viewing experience. Happens to me every time.
Out the box the set looks better than expected for a budget plasma. We have Verizon FiOS in Jersey and the PQ is quite nice and it does appear that we are seeing 1080p and 60Hz. I have yet to try DVD or PS3 with 24fps Blu Ray content because I have a new receiver as well and am struggling with input assignments (on the receiver).
This weekend I hope to try some Blu Rays out (no 2.35:1 yet, so that'll limit my choices) and am hoping getting smooth 24p playback is possible. Has anyone here an update on the 24p playback issues reported early on in this thread? A European firmware update seemed to correct the problem overseas, but what about here?
3D is meaningless to me, by the way. Will never buy 3D titles. Hate it. Wish it could be disinvented.
Made a few adjustments in Expert 1 and currently have a breakin sequence of pics playing via USB stick. Damn I love USB sticks!
