I am also eagerly waiting for Syker's review. One thing is bothering me that this and other LG model have only 16 million colors while the newer Pannys have 3.8 billion colors. The Panny EDs have similar online price point as the LG Hd (1024x768). With the resolution vs colors trade off, I am not quite sure which is a better deal.

Sounds like you're in the same camp as me USG. However, I'm comparing the NEC EDTV at 68 billion colors versus this LG display at 16.77 million colors. What I have to decide is which is of more importance to me. For instance, my viewing distance is going to be close (7 feet), so the higher resolution is desired as I can see pixels on an EDTV at that range. But of course, 68 billion colors will no doubt show me graphics I would otherwise not see. It depends which picture quality point will be more important to you. I'd like them both, but don't have 3.5k to spend.
As a side note, a way to get around the 1 component input would be to use a receiver. I'm sure MOST of us plan to use high quality 5.1 speakers(or more) with a TV this nice. So you'll probably have a receiver or be getting one anyway. Just run the video into it from your DVD, etc. then one output to the Plasma....the receiver will switch between types.

The author discuses the importance of contrast compared to grey scale (and those billions of colors). Makes interesting reading.

Does anyone know what the equivalent consumer model number is?

There is no smart stretch. But if your talking about stretching a SD 4:3 signal to fill the whole screen, yes you can when you set the panel to 16:9 mode. But OTA ,Cable or Satellite HD 4:3 digital signal cannot be stretched.
