Well the moment has come. When I came home from work last night, I was greeted by a surprisingly large (and heavy) box with my new 60pb6650 safely inside. Ordered from Dell.com, and they used Pilot to ship. No problems. I somehow managed to maneuver the beast downstairs and started the unboxing.
The panel is really nice looking upon first inspection. I'd say it is more impressive than when I opened up my 60" Sharp LED that I purchased last year. Probably the reflective screen plays into that.
Called a friend over to help me get this thing on the wall. Definitely a two man job. You can see in this picture below that the screen is definitely reflected in lighted rooms. As I've said, I have another plasma so I know about this, and why I put this one in my lower level, while the LED is on the first floor that has alot of windows. I can tell you from my experience with this plasma, and my older ones, that it does not end up being an issue while the TV is on, but others may disagree.
Next I hooked up the xbox and let the fun begin. I have been watching/playing on a 60" Sharp LED for the past year, so that is what my eyes are used to. Honestly, I was kind of blown away with the picture when I fired up this LG. I really did not realize the difference in PQ between the LED and the Plasmas. I really like my LED. Its bright and crisp and really high def. But as I've read others posts, there is just something about plasmas man. The colors are definitely more rich and deep, and the black level are obviously way better. I am really happy so far with the PQ on this set. Heres some screen shots, and like I said, the iphone camera really doesn't even do it justice:

And ofcourse, the legend himself (had to throw in the Star Wars blue ray ASAP
I'm a pretty big gamer with my free time, and I've been playing a lot of Destiny lately. I probably have over 400 hours into since October. Input lag was probably my biggest concern with buying a plasma. One of the first things I did with the TV was play Destiny for about 2 hours last night, and I can say I noticed absolutely ZERO input lag while playing, and with the amount I've been playing lately I expected I would be able to at least tell a little difference between my LED, but honestly I didn't notice any. And Destiny is a very fast moving FPS game. I dont think Input Lag is a problem at all.
Now, after all that praise, which is all very deserved, I did have one hiccup with my install. I cannot get the TV to connect to my wi-fi. I know its not the wi-fi, because I brought my xbox downstairs and hooked it up to the TV and it connected to the wi-fi immediately. It was always hard wired into my gateway previously, so at first I thought maybe it was the wireless gateway's problem, but no, the xbox connected right away. I'm going to go home today and call Comcast and see if they can help me, but I may be back on here looking for advice in that regard. I do not understand the problem.
All in all, I am extremely happy with the purchase. It's a steal at $600, honestly. Get one before they are gone, you will not be upset.
