    Hi,

    I'm considering a second hand purchase of the Panny pro panel referred to in the thread title and my first question is;

    How good is it in performance terms compared to something like a Samsung PS64E8000?

    A fairer question, I suppose, is how is it's HD and SD performance?
    What about black levels overall contrast performance?

    Another point relates to electricity consumption, the Panny PDF states 740W where as something like the Samsung is 181W .... would the Panny send my electricity bills into the stratosphere??

    (I know the Panny doesn't do 3d etc, etc and that it's only a panel and not a TV)

    any help appreciated :thumbsup:

    Regarding power consumption, if the Samsung is an LED backlit LCD, then it's power consumption is always going to be way less than a plasma. Comparatively sized LCDs and plasma use, on average, the same amount of power. The reason being is that plasma modulates it power usage depending on content; for example showing nothing but peak white uses much more power than a screen showing all black. As far as I know, the quoted power consumption for plasmas is a theoretical max; screen showing all peak white, contrast to max, all processing on, speakers to max - you get the idea. The only reliable real-world power consumption figures I've seen where for a 50" Fujitsu 58 series (I say reliable as these were posted by the then head of Fujitsu Plasmavision UK in the context of the work Fujitsu had undertaken in conjunction with energy saving watchdogs) - it averaged 59w over the course of the first Lord of the Rings film, but obviously, your 65" would use more.

    Stunning sharp hd performance, black levels easily good enough in the right lighting - not sure about the sd performance but presumably much better than any consumer model version.

    Did never own one as great as they are, but spent a few hours at a friends a few years back watching a much smaller version (50") of the same model, never the 65". But watched the Dark Knight on it through a PS3 i think it was, and it was class. So can only imagine the 65" will be class also, but on a bigger scale :thumbsup:
