    I noticed that the Panasonic has a contrast ratio so much higher than most plasmas which are 700:1

    How come this is so? And does this mean Panasonic gives the brightest picture?

    Hello Sam

    No it means it has the best contrast ratio - on paper!

    The Pioneer panels tend to have the edge on brightness and the Panasonic panels have the edge on detail levels in the dark areas of the image.

    The higher brightness/contrast ratios also tend to hint at being able to run your panel far longer before any noticeable image degradation sets in (25K hours+) as you will probably never run the panels at full brightness anyway.

    So can I safely say a 700:1 contrast ratio is good enough?
