Hi, getting a new Panasonic 46 inch. What should I be aware of with a new plasma? As far as setup and play is concerned, are there any do's and dont's? Any of you have experience with one of the 2011 Panasonic plasma tv's? Thanks
05-25-11: Bighead63 LCD and LED are very bright. Personally too bright if you watch in a very dark room for serious movie watching. It hurts me eyes even to view these TV's at people's houses who have never done anything to them beside run them on max brightness and it feels like I'm staring into the sun.
Panny plasma is awesome IMO. Not the Kuro but still very good for the money. I own the VT25 and have loved it.
The VT25 was a bit off in gama if I recall correctly so the cali did help that. It will help any TV regardless of what it is to be the best. Once again not the brightest but the most accurate. People seem to not be able to understand the difference.
Also the ST30 does not have the THX mode. You would have to move up to the GT series to gain this. Look on AVS for settings otherwise to get the ST as best as possible out of the box. Also get it calibrated. It does make a huge difference. The closest you'll probably get is in movie mode with a few tweaks but that is normally where to set it if you don't have THX on them. Also I think warm 2 is the better choice but don't quote me for sure on that. Bighead63 (Threads | Answers | This Thread)
