Just purchased a Panasonic VIERA TC-P46X3 46-Inch Plasma for our bedroom. Cheapest plasma that panasonic has this year that still has internet connectivity as we wanted netflix and amazon VOD for the bedroom. Ordered through amazon, set should arrive on tuesday.

First plasma purchase, hopefully I like it!

don't forget to order a container of plasma refill, otherwise the colors will desaturate over time.

I'm, leaning towards the panasonic 65GT30 for the main room but that will be a couple of months down the line. It's a toss up between that and the Samsung D7000. For now, my Sony LCD RP is still going strong.

We opted for the 720p model for the bedroom to save a little cash.

Nice. Still loving my VT30 but really want to get a proper calibration. I tried my hand at using the DVE BR and I couldn't get the contrast correct.

Out of the box, I'm using THX w/ brightness turned down. But now w/ the new TV shows, I'm noticing that it's too dark.

I was at a customer last week and they were projecting something on the screen. I wondered why it was so clear and bright. It wasn't a projector. It was a 100" Panny plasma. I want that.

I suggest that you try the Spears and Munsil Blu-Ray calibration disc. I tried DVE, Avia and the THX test patterns on some DVD's but never felt like I dialed in the contrast ratio. I think I have it pretty close with Spears and Munsil. Luckily for me it also came free with the Oppo BDP-83, so it didn't even cost me anything.

The Spears & Munsil seems to be the defacto standard for BR quality set up.

I keep looking at Sharp's new 80" LCD to replace my Panny S1 in the big room and then put the S1 in my bedroom.
