Those of you thinking of buying this pj - GO FOR IT!!! Just saw it operating today at my local panny shop in broad daylight,it was showing ice age,no tweaks done to it at all,straight from the box. Wow what a picture!! Couldnt see any screendoor whatsoever or any vertical banding,it was crystal clear!! It was however being fed a normal component signal.HDMI socketed dvd players (Panasonic)to come out later this year,who knows how good the picture will be with it being fed with that.I suspect there will be more and more players coming out with this connection eventually,even cheapo players. I'm personally waiting for recorders with this connection. The fan noise was very low as well. Just my 2 cents worth.
