Nice review, but my username is not fairbanks wink.gif

Also, I just recently signed up for Prime with Amazon and as a result am getting streaming. Do you stream from the S64 itself? I kinda hate the way it's interface is, since it doesn't pull your watchlist from their site and it's annoying having to navigate the clunky UI, maybe a new UI will be updated through a firmware upgrade by Panny, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Micke, thanks for the great write up. I am glad to hear you are as happy as I am with the S64! I am running Fairchild's settings too but have not applied the moshock update yet but I may give that a shot to compare.

Hey all. Newbie here. Thanks for all the great info in this thread. I'm fairly certain I'm going to get one of these to replace my rptv in my next house in a month.
I'm planning on hanging it from a wall. What mount would you recommend for it?

Dang, I guess I should get a PS3 or some other blu-ray player that can stream Amazon and supports watchlist. My xbox360 requires me to become a gold member, and since I don't really play it much, would be a waste of money. PS3 would also double as a decent bluray but kinda pricey. What to do....

COnsidering the s64 might not even be around for the long term, and you found one in stock at a good price even before the discounts, just having trouble getting it transported- might be a case of penny-wise/pound-foolish not to just get it delivered? Easy to say with your money I know. What does costco charge for shipping? Either warehouse is worry-free, but their warranty might be worth the cost difference alone.

Don't know how much Costco charges for delivery, but if it's anywhere near the $59 Sam's charges, I'd rather get my friend's help, plus I need him to help me lift my monster CRT off my A/V stand.

Since Costco doesn't take Discover, I'm probably better off with Sam's unless they offer free shipping. However Costco is less than 2 miles away and Sam's is about 5. And I don't understand throwing money away on extended warranties - I don't waste that on my cars (or worthless rustproofing) or any electronics or appliances. My understanding of electronics is that they either fail right away (within the first year) or last for years (5+). Pure profit for the stores IMHO. I'd rather save $100 with Discover than use my Visa Signature for an extra year warranty.

I'm not sure how much lag your Xbox has but have read it is a lot less than the PS3. If that is true, I recommend something other than the PS3 as its lag has been a pest for me during games since day 1.

I used this one from MonoPrice: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082801&p_id=5916&seq=1&format=2

As long as you don't use the built in level it is fantastic. That and don't let your impact-driver get out of control and compress the drywall too much... oops.

Great price and simple instructions.

Running slides now looking for pixel problems or buzz. None so far.

I've had my 50S60 for two weeks now and haven't noticed any kind of IR on it. I use it primarily as a PC monitor. I've also kept the pixel orbiter on. I play many games with HUDs; WoW, Mass Effect, Minecraft, Diablo III, Bulletstorm. I haven't had any issues with image retention so far. This is the one thing I'm paranoid about with it since this is my first plasma.

At night I usually let cartoon network play in the background. Haven't had any issues with the CN-hd logo in the bottom corner.

Typical total usage per week day is about 7 hours. from 6pm to 12 - 1am. I just crossed the 100 hour mark. The past two weekends it has been on almost non-stop. When I know I'm leaving the room for extended periods I switch the receiver back to cable so it's not left at a static Windows desktop.

[edit]
In reply to the 'popping' sounds. It's more of a snapping sound, and is definitely from thermal expansion/contraction. When I leave it on all day this usually stops within 30 minutes. I haven't actually sat and timed it though rolleyes.gif I have a glass surface on the desk it sits on so I was worried it was cracking at first when I heard it. biggrin.gif

Is it ok to have the box at an angle (not horizontal) if too tall?

If you're looking at the 65" size, it wouldn't fit upright in our Tahoe. We ended up transporting it uber-carefully at a 45 degree angle. I didn't like it, but it was either that or carry it home.

It fired up fine, no damage.

That said, I do NOT recommend transporting it at an angle.

Thanks, but I was looking at one of the new 2013 sony blu-ray players which apparently has good support and isn't that much. BDP-S3100 in particular.

I would have never thought of using mono price for a tv bracket! Are you confident on its strength for this TV?
post #1157 of 6832
I have my 145lbs 65" plasma on a monoprice mount now for about 3 years and it has not moved an inch. I also hang tv's for a living. While monoprice mounts are not as nice as say an all aluminum Sanus mount, for basic installs where a steel stamped mount will work I would use them any day. Plus you cannot beat the cost!

Micke's 65PS64 Review:

It arrived safely and the shipper kindly helped me get the pedestal together and get the LARGE panel on the stand. HVH transport got their part done IN ONE DAY. Whereas, RAC seemingly can't pick up the old panel in less than 2 weeks...

Last TV with the intermittent fault was a 55ST60 and I loved that thing. I didn't want to send it back. Period. But sometimes things happen, so I had to return it and decided to try a 65PS64 since it had a lot more screen real estate for not much more money.

I'll be referring to the 2 panels as ST60 and S64 for brevity.

Settings used: ST60: D-Nice's 100 hour panel prep to the letter and installed his settings though with gamma set one step lower or brighter or whatever you call it. S64: fairchild99's latest settings in cinema, Moshock's tune up in Home Theater.

Observer: An admitted amateur, not an AVS expert. Please keep that in mind with the below.

Content watched: Avatar streamed on Amazon. I'd just watched that on the ST60 just prior to packing it up. Hence, used that for the S64.

This will get lengthy, so here is my synopsis:

As for me, I've lost NOTHING with this switch. I am very stoked. Yeah, I don't know every darned thing to look for, but for me, this panel is magnificent.

fairchild99: I utilized your work from your latest calibration as my settings and it works brilliantly well on my new S64, IMHO. Moshock: Your settings are probably what I'll use when I have the curtains open and or bright lighting on. I like your settings a lot, too.

ADDED DETAIL:

Leveling:

Like my ST60, this panel sat low on the left end. Loosened the 4 screws that hold the vertical part of the pedestal to the panel, shipper lifted that end of the panel gently, tightened screws. Both ends now measure even - less than 1mm variance. Easy peasy.

Form Factor:

The back cover does appear to be about a half inch thicker on the S64 compared to the ST60. As previously mentioned somewhere, the S64 back cover is beveled around the edges instead of radiused.

So from the side or back, the assembly doesn't look as slender as the S60.

I know it's vanity, but I'd rather it were thinner. But nowhere near a deal breaker. And, because this panel is so much bigger overall than the other, in scale it doesn't look that bulky for thickness.

Brightness:

This comes up sometimes like something terrible is wrong. That is not what I'm seeing.

Keep in mind, some people think D-Nice's calibration for the ST60 is maybe a little dim and I had gotten used to that on the ST60.

IMHO, fairchild99's settings are at least as bright as the ST60 with D-Nice's settings and maybe a tad brighter. And NO red push on his cal. Brilliant job!

The above is daytime but with some halfway effective curtains drawn.

Kicked the curtains open and turned on 3 harsh CFL lights in the ceiling fan in the LF area of the TV. Glare is handled at least as well as with the ST60. Just to make things interesting, I went to the dark nighttime jungle chase in Avatar. The movie remained awesome and immersive. Not as radically punchy as with the curtains drawn, but I'm damned if I can see any loss from the ST60 with D-Nice's cal. <-- That was with fairchild99's settings. Moshocks settings are significantly brighter than D-Nice's ST60 settings regardless of room lighting.

If your panel is dim, I ditto what Moonchilde said. Make sure eco and CATS are off. If it is still dim, I'm not sure what diagnostics you should do, but you may have a defective panel.

Sharpness:

My viewing distance with both panels is 8 feet when not reclined, 9 feet when reclined. I'd read that any 65" panel can look a little less sharp than a 55" at the same viewing distance.

There could be a tad of that. It's more noticeable at 6 feet, but that isn't where I sit.

I increased sharpness setting on both cal's to 10 and believe that to be the butter zone.

As Moshock mentioned, colors are being overdriven in his settings to get some more punch for those who like that. I believe I see a bit less sharpness with Moshock's settings maybe due to whatever is being pushed harder.

For gamers who sit very close like 4 feet or something, expect to see some added coarseness from the larger pixels compared to a 55". Not sure if there would be a noticeable difference from a 60 to a 65. Maybe someone here could give an opinion on that?

ABL? What ABL?

I'm sure the pro's can see it and that it is there. I can't see it. Whites are bright; near blinding at times with the curtains drawn.

Buzz:

I hate to paint a bullseye on my forehead and yell: "Hey Murphy, come get me!" But I haven't been able to hear any buzz yet. However, my environment has a HEPA filter running and sometimes a danged noisy fridge.

Popping:

See the "Murphy" reference in buzz, and not much time on the panel yet. No popping yet.

CATS/Eco:

CATS and eco were on in 1 picture mode, not in the rest.

Bad Pixels:

None observed yet. Will look closer when I start slides at bedtime. Guess that tells ya' how I plan to break it in. Leaving pixel orbiter and overscan on for now just because.

Motion Blur 'er whatever it's called:

I mostly stream Amazon, so with that content, it appears to be about the same. Maybe a bit more pronounced and I think that's because the panel is so big.

I only recently moved from an 11 year old Toshiba 36" CRT TV to the 55ST60 and noticed the motion blur can be a bit of a pest due to panel size - especially when a director is using poor cinematography (shaking the camera and such) to try to add fake action to an otherwise dead scene.

Size:

Oh my God. I love the bigger screen.

Gaming Input Lag:

I loved that ST60. I hope it gets repaired and finds a good home. I wasn't going to return it because of input lag and said so in the ST60 lag thread. However, my TV time is less than 10% gaming. Also, the PS3 has so much lag in most of the shooters that it was a constant pest just by itself.

Something was probably gained with the S64 even for a low percentage gamer like me. During target acquisition, I swing past targets less often; overcontrol less often. I think whoever said it just feels less sluggish probably hit the nail on the head.

Please keep in mind, though, that I've always felt just the PS3 itself made games annoyingly sluggish.

I guess I'm saying the reduced lag is a gainer even for a low percentage gamer like me. I'm admitting I was wrong. I'm glad for the reduction.

I have no quantifiables for lag, so I'll shut up on this topic.

RECOMMENDATION:

If you are an AVS expert, then we're not alike. If you are constantly scanning images for faults and find them annoying, I can't help ya' out with whether you'd like this panel 'cause I'm not seeing any problems. But I probably lack the knowledge to be able to see what you're seeing. Also, my eyes aren't the greatest. 20/25 right, 20/20 left.

If you watch TV a lot but are a more typical user who isn't heavy into AVS science (like me), I heartily recommend this TV. With a provision: It is early now. If the thing breaks down or I start seeing bothersome things, I'll update later in this thread.

Questions welcomed, but as you have no doubt deduced, don't expect a lot of highly technical observations from me. But I'll do what I can.

Well done. Always nice to have "real world" reviews. I'm still debating on which set to purchase but it sounds more and more like the S64 is a sweet spot. I am a long time gamer and the lag talk over in the ST forums has me bummed Panasonic got it wrong on that set. Plus speculation has it these could be the last plasmas they're going to make so more reason to get something soon.I cannot stomach LED tvs. (I'm coming from a 65S1)
post #1159 of 6832
For those that are thinking about purchasing the TC-65PS64 from Sam's Club...

I've been watching Sam's Club site like a hawk for the last week or so. The S64 was listed as "In Stock" yesterday, and just today the listing status changed to "LOW IN STOCK"

If you search "Panasonic Plasma" on Sam's Club site, the TC-65PS64 pops up...2nd one down (Item #: 101856) listed as LOW IN STOCK.

Just wanted to give you guys a heads up. Didn't want anyone to miss out on this plasma.

The Costco in Yonkers, NY has 5 in-stock. I was originally going to order through Costco, but the associate informed me I had to pick the TV up in person. It could not be purchased through the local store and shipped out. (For those that don't already know) Items purchased through Costco are only able to be shipped if ordered online through the website...unfortunately the S64 is not available on Costo's site. I drive a 335i so there's no chance in hell I'm gonna be able to get a 65S64 in trunk, so i'm having it delivered through Sam's Club. For me it's a better option as opposed to renting a truck and getting hit with the Toll.
post #1162 of 6832
The Costco in Burnsville, MN had one on display, four new-in-boxes sitting there, and after I took mine they replaced it with another. So they seem to be stocked well. cool.gif

I seriously love this TV. It's sooo big and beautiful. I accidentally left a song paused on my PS3 for nearly an hour, and even though the PS3 screensaver kicked in (which just dims the screen a bit), I thought for sure I was in for some image retention. To my pleasant surprise I hit a button, the screen brightened, I exited, and zero image retention folks. Ohhh that was a good feeling. I have ~15 hours on the set, and I thought I was doomed hahaha!

If you have a Costco in the area, you really can't go wrong. I'm still so thrilled at the price for performance that I started a thread in the Deals sub-forum: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1470172/panasonic-tc-65ps64-65-plasma-1399-99-5-year-warranty-for-only-99-99

Congrats on that! Here's hoping it gets there safe and sound AND that you like it. I already love this panel.

I just went in and looked and sure enough, my PS3 screensaver was set at 20 minutes. Could be that is what saved it. Knocked it back to 10 minutes to see if that becomes a pest.

Screensavers are a plasmas best friend, LOL. I have mine set to activate after ~10 minutes and my DirecTV one kicks in ~5 minutes or so.

The area I have for a television, well a 65" would fill almost the entire wall. Not what I want to do. 50" is just right. I've called COSTCO and SAM's and searched online everywhere. No one is selling the 50PS64. Does that mean it's not out yet?

I wonder what it's initial price point will be. The 50S60 is only $700. Looked at one yesterday and it was nice. I have a pretty dimly lit room it's going in so I wonder if I need to opt for the S64 at all. Any advice? I looked at the S60 when the screen went dark and it was a perfect reflection which really annoyed me. I looked at a ST60 on display which uses the same AR filter the S64 has and the reflections were still noticeable - to the point where I'm really having a hard time justifying the S64. If there is a large cost discrepency, then the S60 will win out.

I'm a plasma-noob, btw. I currently use a 26' Tube Samsung, so there you go.

I'm not a plasma expert either and as much as I hate some of the retailer abuse that goes on from time to time I don't think you're ever going to know for sure (regarding the reflections) until you try it in your living room. I would suggest buying for someone that would allow for any easy return if you aren't satisfied. I don't think it qualifies as retailer abuse when you've done your homework and have narrowed it down to a few options. smile.gif

Sadly there is no perfect TV out there right now...just have to pick your poison.

Glare has been covered extensively in this thread, so you may have already seen a lot of input on this. If not, suggest using "search this thread" as a lot of that input is from people with more plasma TV experience than me.

Thanks for your responses. Yes, standing in the showroom, the 65" was awesome. But this is a battle I don't want to have with my more awesome wife. smile.gif

I live in a split-level so the living room is essentially a basement with a sliding glass door. Outside the sliding glass door is a covered screened-in patio that leads to an extremely shady backyard. I think I may have the perfect setup for a Home Theater-like viewing experience. The sliding glass doors have a heavy curtain that blocks light already and it's perpendicular to the TV's proposed placement so it will never be seen in the TV unless I go stand in the opposite corner and stare down the wall the TV is mounted on - meaning I'm not even watching the TV at that point. There is an ugly ceiling fan with 4 bulbs overhead (which we're probably going to ditch anyway) and we have a table lamp in the corner. Both are easily switched off of course.

Me and my sons game pretty regularly on the TV on weekend afternoons. I can't go for the ST60 solely for the input lag issue. I sure wish Panasonic would make a statement about fixing that. I would then spend MORE $ and get that set. Don't they realize?

The more I talk about it... the more I realize the 50" S60 may be perfect.

After seeing Costco price of $1399 and Sams price updated now of $1398, I called Sams to try and price match, but their policy is only 7 days somehow. I started out polite but after some discussion I was starting to get a little heated. I was finally able to get transferred to a supervisor and get a refund of $75 for price difference and tax.

So for anyone that ordered at $1448, its worth a shot, but you will need to get to a supervisor to accomplish anything I imagine.

So for anyone that ordered at $1448, its worth a shot, but you will need to get to a supervisor to accomplish anything I imagine.
