Just got the 60" yesterday and I must say it is a great TV for the price! Some quick impressions:
This is my first Plasma, I've been an LCD player since I've known HD TVs, but I think this TV smashes the ones I've had before (from Samsung and Sony), I've always been scared of IR and Plasma problems because I'm an AVID gamer, but now I'm a "believer" - Plasmas are better for everything, the motion clarity is something I can never get on LCD without turning on awful motion flows etc that would introduce even more input lag. But the clarity here doesn't come without a price though, I noticed some trailing when I played Journey, but I can live with it.
And I'm already gaming on this beast and cranking up the contrast to 90, I know all about IR and I'm running a certain clip from an USB flash drive when I'm not watching/playing on the TV. My trick for early gaming is hiding the HUD if the game allows it, or just pressing start every couple of minutes to hide the HUD and etc
I'm not into multiplayer and so this isn't a big deal for me. So far I haven't noticed any IR.
And yes there's some buzz when displaying a bright image, but I heard this is a common thing with Plasma.Edited by nbnt - 3/7/13 at 2:47am
