5 out of 5 eggsAnother great TV!

Pros: Bright screen, great colors, clear picture, good sound. The matt screen is the biggest pro for me. The TV is in a room with several windows. They don't obscure the picture on this TV.

Cons: Not many movies or shows are created in 1080p yet. 720p HD & especially non-HD programming can actually look a little fuzzy compared to the same show on a 720p HD set. Thinking to the future, I got it anyway.

Glossy band around screen shows reflections.

Other Thoughts: Panasonic HD plasmas are always top rated in reviews. I have two & am very pleased with both.

Most dvd's available are not HD, get an upscaling dvd player. It adjusts the signal for the HD TV & definitely makes a difference on how it looks.

Use HDMI connections if you can. It produces the best picture & sound.

5 out of 5 eggsBest plasma in this price range

Pros: This is the best plasma in this price range. Great picture quality. SD even looks good but HD is where this set shines!

Cons: 2 HDMI

Other Thoughts: I was deadset on getting either a SONY XBR or Samsung 4071 LCD. Until I found out how great the plasmas look, richer colors, no motion problems, etc. Plasma all the way :)

5 out of 5 eggsLove Mine!

Pros: This is a beautiful TV. Pixelshift is awesome, eliminates the fear of burn-in. anti-glare screen is fantastic too, can't believe it's taken plasma this long to adopt!

Cons: HUGE power consumption! over 500W! But i knew that ahead of time.oh well, it's probably worth it.
Makes Standard def look even worse(but that's with any 1080p set)

Other Thoughts: Settings did take a little tweaking for best picture, no big deal though.
Panasonic have some of the best looking Plasma displays out there (of course Pioneer is still TOP)
