You'll love this TV if you can get past the retarded screen dimming in the Standard/Dynamic/Natural modes.
So I just got it delivered and hooked up. Initial impressions:
Picture quality seems good. Very vibrant and colorful. Seems to be more vibrant than the plasma, but I have nothing but my memory to compare it to.
Brightness is off the charts. I like that I can change that setting based on the room ambient lighting.
Much, much less glare than the plasma. Still getting some, but I think once I mount it and put a little tilt downwards it'll be perfect.
Light as hell. Much lighter than plasma.
Text seems easier to read on this than the plasma (such as reading scores/stats on MLB network shows)
Smart hub doesn't seem to be designed well. I liked Panasonic's set up much better.
Blacks not nearly as good as the plasma (obviously to be expected)
Motion blur. I turned on Wimbeldon just to check out some sports (nothing else on right now) and I saw some serious blur with the ball. I'll have to keep tweaking the settings to see if I can eliminate it completely.
The stand (while I love the turning aspect), I don't like how it feels flimsy. Seems like the TV could fall over with little forward or backward force.
Having to turn on the game mode to avoid that dimming issue. That's just stupid.
Seem to get some dithering based on the content. I'm seeing it here in there.
3D. I actually bought this for the 3D capability, even though I've never used it. I was thinking of the model below (6100) but I paid the extra $200 to "future" proof since I have little kids who may eventually want 3D. Tried out the DirecTV's 3D channels. Football seemed cool, but disorienting over periods. Since I've never used 3D before in anything, I think it will be a while to "train" my eyes and brain on the feature.
Now, I've yet to hook up a blu-ray, so it's hard for me to effectively give a full critique of it. Right now, I am liking some features and not liking any other ones. I'll keep checking working to tweak it and see if I can get some of the bad things to move into the good column. I think it's just going to take a while for me to get used to, since I'm so used to plasma.Edited by Deftones17 - 7/7/12 at 4:05pm
