Just an FYI on power consumption, I have the 60" PA6500, I plugged in one of those killi-a-watt meters.
Consumption varies, depends on blacks and whites on the screen.
Color Wash mode: 320 watts.
Lots of blacks: dips < 300 watts
Lots of whites: up between 360 -400 watts.
In general, it fluctuates between 300-400 depending on whats on the screen.
The TV is one week old, I have 75 hours on it, still in break-in mode. Brightness and contrast below 70.
TV has been great, love it. No IR, no humming noises, no problems whatsoever associated with plasma TV's.
Only issue that may bother people is the screen is reflective to light and windows. Not a problem in my situation, there is a product called "blinds" that cover windows and reduce light from coming in the house. Edited by fredk444 - 7/27/12 at 9:14pm
