Chess, I just received the Panny ST50 (like 15 minutes ago). I've got blinds on the right side of the room, I will let you know how glare is tomorrow during daylight.

There is a little bit of glare from a lamp next to the couch, but it is a dim reflection. Not really bothersome for TV watching. There is more glare from the glossy black bevel than the screen.

If you have bright lights directly behind the sitting area, it could be a bit of a problem.

Yup, 50".

Decided to treat myself to a new TV over Thanksgiving weekend. Darn internet shopping.

Was pretty unsure about the glare from the plasma screen, but in the end I thought if it was going to be bad during the day, I'd just figure a way to hang something over the blinds to mask any light coming through. Definitely wanted the rich colors and deep blacks of a plasma.

I look forward to hearing more about the potential or realized glare and reflections as you start to get used to it over the next few days.
I won't be going to check out the Panny at a local store until later this weekend or early next week. I did pickup the LG though and will set it up tomorrow (saw the Sony right next to it as well and because of its higher price and much more glossy screen, we decided to rule it out as an option). Once again in the store i tested out the off axis performance (of the LG) and there is significant loss of contrast to the sides. Not unexpected but more than i expected.
We'll see if that holds up tomorrow once i get it plugged in and calibrated a bit.

Anyone using a more current dvd for LED/plasma calibration?

I'm sure glad I got blackout curtains. Mine are white on the outside and dark brown on the inside. From JC.Penny. Mounted on outer of 2 rods. The inner rod has curtains that are more sheer. This way I can control how much light I want in the room. Total blackout, to light through sheers, to no curtain for max light.

Your evil hat rack allowed a new TV in the living room?

Yes, but it did attack the delivery man.

I see the coat rack peeing on the wall to mark it's territory.

Chess, I also thought the Sony 850 series with the Gorilla Glass is too reflective. Took it off my short list too but still have the LG7600 on it. Congrats and looking forward to your review.

I just got the Disney World of Wonder Blu-ray for adjusting the settings on my plasma and it worked great. More current than my old DVE dvd. Ordered it from Amazon-someone in the deals thread mentioned it.
