I already posted this in another thread. But as I noticed that there was not a dedicated thread for this Tv, I thought I should re-post. I hope this will be fine with the mods Hello, I've been a lurker on these forums for an eternity, and thought it about time I finaly joined up Decided to go for the Ps51d550 as I previously had a b550. Not only that but I could not justify the price increase to my other half for the 6900. Enough rambling. Took hold of the 51 last Tuesday, along with two pairs of 3100 glasses. ( Very comfortable, and easily synced to the Tv ) Well I must say that the picture quality is simply stunning not only on HD through Sky, ( Some HD progs are better than others, but that's to be expected I suppose ) but on Blu-ray also. In a completely dark room, the picture quality really starts to shine. The colour range is superb, very vibrant, and on a set under £800 the black level is astounding. I have also not encountered any IR or brightness fluctuations whatsoever. Now let me just get this next point out of the way. During the day, the screen is very reflective. This might put alot of people off, but to be honest it never really bothered me as I tend to do the vast majority of my viewing in the evening, with no ambient lighting on whatsoever. Also there is a faint buzz when going from bright to dark scenes, when the tv volume is really low, but honestly it is nothing off-putting. Besides, I'm sure the vast majority of people like myself will never notice this, once you crank up the amp. ( On another note, the sound from the built in tv speakers is very good. At one point on Thursday afternoon, my missus actually thought I had the amp and speakers on, and she was surprised to find it was just the tv speakers. ) 3D is again top-notch. ( I only tried Coraline, Despicable me, and Saw 3D. The only time I encountered any cross-talk was a few scenes in Saw near the end, and it was so slight. Other than that, I am very impressed. ) I have tried a few progs on 2d-3d conversion. And found it to be better than what I was imagining. You can clearly see the depth going into the screen. Again, some progs were better than others, but it gets the job done. Will add a few pics from the start of Avatar which I took tonight.

My settings are: Picture Mode - Movie Cell Light - 10 Contrast - 74 Brightness - 54 Sharpness - 0 Colour - 50 Tint - G54/R46 Black Tone - Off Dynamic Contrast - Off Gamma - -2 Colour Space - Auto White Balance - Left it untouched for now Flesh Tone - 0 Edge Enhancement - Off Motion Lighting - Off Colour Tone - Warm 2 Film Mode - Auto1 These settings are fine for me. But just thought I'd throw them out there just incase anyone else with the same tv would like to give them a whirl. ( Best viewed after dark ) Anyhow, sorry for the long post. Just hope this sort of helps anyone who is undecided and not sure about the set. I think it is a great telly ( easily pleased I guess ). So there we go. For a superb large screen tv, with the added bonus of 3D ( without all the internet features of the higher ranges ) and at under £800 depending on where you look. Bargain of the year I think. James.
