You left out the other pertinent part of the poll ---


Panasonic will not fix the floating blacks


Panasonic will not fix the rising blacks


Panasonic will not fix either the rising or floating blacks




Or at least put in "None of the above" in your list of choices.

Our only foreseeable short-term hope for a stop to rising blacks will be if Panasonic have adopted the "isolated-prime" technology xrox explains in this thread . It's the only (known) potential fix that Panasonic holds the patent for.


If that hasn't been implemented in the 2011 models, our next hope will probably be a refined ageing process which will slow and limit the rise considerably - courtesy of the ex-Pioneer techs that now work for Panasonic.

I think it will be slowed down, but it will still happen. The floating blacks better be fixed or I will lose a lot of respect for Panasonic.

I seriously don't see the floating blacks. It's not a problem if you don't recognize it. Same with rising blacks. But feel free to make a big deal out of it if you want. The only thing bothers me slightly is the buzz.

Ditto. The poll really should be about whether anyone actually perceives either as a "problem" that needs to be fixed. Nobody here has any knowledge of what Panny will or will not do.

It doesn't matter if you perceive it or not, both floating blacks and rising blacks need to be dead and buried. Panasonic is only PDP manufacturer that has rising black levels, that's why some people make a big deal out of it.

Another vote for Panny will fix nothing. Sammy will get serious consideration for my next purchase.


To above who don't notice, good for you! The rest of us visit this site to get the best out of our displays, and we don't like to have to watch movies with all the lights on so the lousy blacks can be acceplable. Turn off all the lights and then watch your TV, tell me if you like those blacks still.

Yes, they are. When I go to a moive, the blacks are absolutly horrible, but I still enjoy the movie. Stop looking at the bars on the top and bottom of your screen and start watching and enjoying the movie.

I have a 54VT25 that I like very much, that said I don't see floating blacks simply going away. I don't think Panasonic views it as a problem, just a side affect of their current tech. The point is to keep costs down and so I don't see a change on the horizon especially with the growing preference of LCD/LED by consumers and manufacturers.
