Well I guess the other thread got locked. I had a 5080 for about a week and to me it looked like in some scenes there wasn't enought detail in dark areas on the image. I then sold that tv to a relative that owns a bar and went and got the 58" panasonic 700u just to see if there was anymore detail in dark areas and I wanted a 58" to 60" screen after reliezing the 50 was to small. Needless to say the Panny had way more unacceptable things about the picture then the one thing I didn't like about the 5080. So I went to BB to see the 6010 and the 150 and to me the 150 looked noticably better. I'm just wanting your advice since you clearly seem to know both these sets more so then anyone else I caould ask. What exactly are the differences between these two sets in general and in your opinion are these differences worth the extra 1K retail?
