After going through many LED TV's in my hunt for my next TV, and not just store shopping but actually having them in my home, I now own the Panasonic 60ST60.
As far as pq is concerned only the Sharp Elite would probably be one of the only LED TV's that can top these better plasma's. The blacks are incredibly black, sometimes you think the TV is actually off. Also, the detail in the blacks and dark scenes are amazing. You do not lose anything in the picture in dark scenes. You can make out everything.
I think more people need to give plasama's a chance. I also thought they were outdated and was fed to believe that. It is quite the opoosite, plasma TV's still offer the best picture out there. Some of the deepest blacks you can imaging without any of that flashlighting or light leakage, excellent color reproduction, high contrast levels and just a full beutiful picture. Also no issues with motion blurring like LED's. Great off angle viewing. The list goes on and on and on.
If you want to feel like you are actually watching a movie at a cinema nothing beats a plasma TV. I am not typing this to knock LED TV's or this particular TV in general but if someone is looking to purchase a new TV I highly reccomend looking at the ST60. You can get the 60" for $1,499. Check out the CNET review or any review for that matter on this TV. There is a reason why people are excited.
Also, instead of reading all these posts and seeing people worried about what their screen looks like, rubbing it down, terrbile flashlighting, unwatchable dark scenes in the ST60 thread it is people talking ablout how incredible the picture is, what settings everyone is using, how black can this screen go.....Nothing really but positive talk!
No matter what a salesman tells you, there is probably no LED TV for under 3-4k that can compete with the ST60.
