picked up this tv (PN60F5500) for a good price and am now thinking about returning it within the 30 day window.
Honestly i just don't think it looks as crisp as it should, kind of grainy / pixelated sometimes and just sorta feels hard to watch at times. Not sure if it's just because i'm not used to plasma or what (i'm coming from a 40inch LED samsung). Games and the 3d do look awesome. I find that anything animated looks unreal on this tv actually. Despicable me 2 in 3d looked mind blowing. Avatar also looked pretty good, maybe not as crisp as it should, but very very lifelike. I mean maybe that's what you get for a 60 inch tv for around a grand.
Sports are not the best though, especially hockey, flashes everywhere. I think it has to do, like others have said, with the camera flashes, because it happens only at certain angles, and it happens in basketball too which doesn't have crazy white levels. I watched a 1080p snowboarding video that has way more bright white than hockey and it didn't pop at all. So i think it has to do with an oversensitivity to the camera flashes off of reflective surfaces.
If it weren't for the sports issues i think i'd be pretty pleased with the TV, but that's unacceptable, i mean old school tvs handle sports better than a 2013 plasma, lol.
May just go with a 55' LED samsung because my 40 is primo for everything, including sports.
