While I deeply appreciate your thorough reviews I cannot stand by and let you flaunt your bias toward Plasma and the Panny VT-30 or any other puke plasma. For those of us that have large windows and bright sunny rooms that owned Plasma is a piece of useless garbage to keep it polite and are you blind?
Have you ever tried to view a dark video game or movie on a plasma in daytime with it's 85% daytime washout and it's 24/7 mirror reflections and it's URINATED on dirty WHITES
? Why is it that not a single reviewer ever points out these flaws of Panny Plasma to your viewers and you go on an on when in such an environ they are GARBAGE! I once bought a Panny Plasma following pundits on AVSForum and what a piece of useless garbage and I took a $500 loss to get it out of my house. Don't you view in the daylight or have homes with tall windows over there.
You brag on about their Blacks but their whites look like someone peed on them or dirty gray ocean wake in the Carribean is nonsense = been there and they are bright blinding WHITE just as the snow in Vermont Skiing and on a plasma it's dirty yellow/gray that lost a detergent challenge.
Just why is it you guys are always in denial of realistic viewing in this day and age of luxury homes with tall arched windows and PLASMA'S DAYTIME DULL PQ SHORTCOMINGS!!! Plasma BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ anyone?
You analyzed the Sony HX929 and showed it's shortcomings and you use Plasma as the bar yet it fails to meet any HT viewing bar in a bright sunny room or it's reflections showing the inventory of my room at night suck, yet you fail to mention the Plasma shortcomings that can be HUGE and make viewing next to impossible and anything but enjoyable! Every review you post you use the plasma's as the bar and yet their inherent flaws in a bright sunny room make me want to place one below a urinal not my HT. Plasma is not the bar for anything during daytime viewing and who can stand viewing your rooms inventory at night staring back at you, yet you flaunt them as the HT Bar in virtually all your reviews.
That lacks credibility to post that in denial of daytime viewing conditions and these are precisely why LCD blows away plasma in sales today despite plasma being a better value for one's dollar per inch - I wouldn't take one for FREE - the lemmings can follow your VT-30 advice. .
