Why did you decide on the return, just wondering, did you have light leakage probs like I do?
Well it was a few things actually. For one, on dot-by-dot mode, we are seeing the blue lines, some have said it is the CC signal, but it is on a lot of the channels from our directv receiver, and never experienced this problem before the Sharp.
Also, not being able to dial in the colors on the hdmi ports is a big problem, since I've got everything going through an onkyo receiver to one hdmi in on the tv, and no options in the service menu for the fine tune adjustments.
Coming from a samsung dlp, the motion blur is very noticeable for us, and these three issues, every one has noticed and commented on in the family, including those who I will politely put as "tech ignorant" which is saying something.
The light leakage for the most part can be noticed if looked closely enough, but not too bad.
Originally we said LCD w LED back lighting since the room during the day gets pretty bright, and most of the plasmas act like a big mirror and do not get bright enough, but from what I have read, Panasonic does a good job with their anti-glare filter, and a few tweaks on the set gets it pretty bright as well.
I'll try to get you guys some more feedback. Honestly we wern't looking to spend much more than we already did with the Sharp, and I can say that with the deals going on right now, in the end I paid about $100 more than what this TV was going on during BF, so well within the budget.
