Nice!


Here is the "un-official" Panny welcome thread...it refers to the 6 series, but should help you with the 7 series. :D


Excellent! Prepare to be wowed by your new unit!


Some threads for reference to assist you;

Out-of-the-Box acceptance test , to help prepare you for the proper steps to take when the big box shows up,

42PWD6UY Settings File thread to give you an idea of other users settings,

Are you seeing the FULL image you paid for!? , which is _Michaelangelo_s thread to assist in overscan,


Don't forget "Hammer's Settings of Extreme Visual Bliss"


And last, but absolutely not the least, be sure to check out the "Steaming Rat," or "Rich's Method For Achieving A More Realistic Image... to assist in your calibration process.


Enjoy your new plasma! :D

Two words and maybe Juice can back me up.


"Back Light".

I think he might mean placing a light behind the display which will light up the wall that is behind the display. Basically, it is to give higher definition of the "blacks" shown on the display (human eyes actually view blacks and whites as relative to each other, thus removing the complete blackness around the screen removes the closest deep black and thus makes the blacks on the screen seem blacker.

Go to home depot (lowe's where ever) and get both...see which you like better then take the other one back. Or if you like the flourescent type better take them both back and get an idealume.


Enjoy!!


That's what counts. ;)

And in fluorescent, do most people use plane white .. or blacklight?


(The blacklight is supposed to work much better for contrasts .. that's what I heard)

Patience grasshopper.


It'll all be good, you'll "see". :D


RE: Plain light


Most use a plain 6500k light as that is closest to the color of a sunny day and is also the ISF standard. The idealume, OTOH, comes with colored plastic lenses that you can place over the light for the desired effect (changes the color temp of the light).
