Some of you know I was well chuffed to get hold of one of these quickly last week, it arrived on Friday. I've been using a Sony CS3 for the past few months or so and have been extremely pleased with it's performance but always wanted to upgrade for Progressive Scan. Now 2 days on, I'm not so sure I made the right choice. 1 - There's a dead pixel about 8inches from the top right, 4 inches in, so it's fairly prominent 2 - there seems to be banding top to bottom, strips of about 2 or 3 inches which at times are very noticeable 3 - the standard picture (non progressive) is awful quality and definately worse than my old Sony. 4 - Screen door is notcieable depending on movie.. Does this mean that Panasonic have not made any effort on normal mode in the knowledge that when you compare it to PS you'll be very impressed.? Can I exchange because of the dead pixel Is the banding normal.. I use a Da-lite screen which was perfect for my last projector and I'm even off to Lonodn today to get a different screen in the hope it sorts some of the problems out.. At the moment I wish I had waited for a 10WHT..would it have been noticeably better..?? gutted..
