Picked mine up from Sony last night and returned the W802a. Couldn't stand the black levels on that, had clouding and pretty DSE so I decided to go with this instead and so glad I did. Been trying to find a TV I have been happy with for months since I have been really anal about light bleed and stuff so it is nice for that quest to appear to be at it's end finally since I have not noticed any banding, DSE, clouding, light bleed etc. Blacks are nice and the colors are fantastic. The one area of the W802a that had really impressed me was the color other than the blacks and this is even better. The best I have experienced from a TV I have purchased personally. I can't comment on it versus Plasma as much as Nenito would want me to say it is awful compared to a Plasma. The buzzing annoys me and the phosphor trails give me severe headaches much like the rainbow effect on DLP used to. Anyway, I am no TV expert or anything so I am not going to be pulling out charts and stuff and all I can say is the blacks, colors and PQ are amazing to me.
And gaming is so smooth on this. I am going to say the W802a doesn't have the same input lag as somebody mentioned they heard it might a few posts ago since this seems much better to me that that did. But again I am not expert and my mind could just be playing tricks on me.
Was also worried the chrome stand would bug me and be more reflective than the W802a stand but have not noticed it.
Anyway, these are probably some of the most pathetic impressions ever posted on this forum so eventually somebody better will post some impressions
Tried to take some pictures but my camera and photo skills are not the greatest either
Will spoiler them to prevent scrolling.
