It never worked out for me but I'm still enjoying my free Panny version (CT-34WX50); My BF worked at a Kenwood audio distributor that used it for trade shows, so other than getting a little banged around from being shipped all over the country it hardly got any use. No painful anti-glare film or weird power supply management chips problem to deal with but I sure would have liked a built-in OTA tuner and HDMI (or DVI); I suspect I wouldn't have noticed much difference with the SFP tube at this size unless I was sitting real close (ex: gaming). Also, I can't find much forum discussion out there on the web on the Panny.

@ GeneralLight Thanks so much for your posts on this topic. The information you provided gave me the confidence to do this, and it was pretty darn easy following your instructions. I completed the job in maybe 30-40 minutes total. Pulling the front bezel forward to remove the film was made much easier because of the specific information about the screws and clips you provided. Also, I was able to do this without moving the TV from it's stand, which is important considering this thing is over 200 lbs.

For anyone else who is considering doing this, I highly recommend taking off the front bezel as recommended by GeneralLight. I started by attempting to cut around the edges with a razor blade so as to avoid taking apart the TV. The problem is that the film is pretty thick and stiff, and getting the peeling started is damn near impossible. What's worse, I can easily imagine someone trying the razor blade method, failing, and having permanent damage to their viewing area (on the film) because they're afraid to take the TV apart. Just take off the back and pull the front bezel forward, it's way easier.

Of course, there are safety concerns with residual charge as mentioned by many. Following a simple Youtube tutorial like this one will keep you safe:

The previous owner of my XBR960 had damaged the anti-glare film with some sort of chemical, resulting in permanent streaks and such. I'm very glad to be rid of that ugly film as I'll be using this set for Gamecube, Wii, and PS2/PS3 gaming.
