Sound Advice = Tweeter Ect. ?

If so I know the price , I bought one.

Good price for a good plasma tv.

Still a heavy tv by todays standars , but not that heavy.

Sony`s getting out of the plasma business?? Don`t know but I think so.

One huge plus is the sound 100W total you gota love that part , and it sounds like 100W.

Burn-In >>>

I watched Star Wars II this afternoon and after I saw image retention NOT burn-in.

So how long must we "break-them-in" to prevent this ?? I wish I knew, word is 1000 hr`s to be on the safe side.

Only a 30 day return policy , ( better than nothing ).

I have my contrast set at half and brightness at 1/4 with the pro setting + power saving mode.

Should I have seen the retention of the black bars ?? Don`t know.

YES they did go away , quickly as a matter of fact.

Still bothers me though.

2nd remote , why , "Still" functions works but no still button on the remote. ( I have an older Sony tv and used that remote to varify that the freeze function works. \\

Old remote was # RM-Y1003 new one is RM-Y1004 , old one of course had a freeze button.

Could not adjust pic size in freeze mode , thats probly is why they changed remotes.

Picture quality is very good , even SD looks A-OK , HD is very good , although CC won`t be installed until Thursday. You may be able to pickup a few HD here and there without a cable card. Most are HD in 4X3 mode ??? Why????

If this is my idea of a partial review , well you get the picture.

FULL review to follow in the next week or so.

Good luck

Gary

Thanks for the info. Sound Advice does= Tweeter. Hard to pass up at price from an authorized dealer. I'm hoping comcast isn't encrypting local HD content.

Might do it , thinking about it , you have 30 days after the sale to get it.
