...finally received the pedestal stand for my 37PW7 on Wednesday night - after racing to the couriers to pick it up just before they closed. Set it up that night - by the time I'd cleared spaghetti junction from my old 32 CRT and cleared a space, and set it all up it was past midnight already. I took it out of dynamic mode - lowered the brightness and contrast settings, watched Star Wars and thoroughly underwhelmed. (Watching through VanDamme component levels). Sky was pretty good through the JSB convertor. Still went to bed slightly disappointed. After work yesterday, I had a proper play with the settings - not entering any service or advanced picture settings. All I can say is WOW - watched IRobot last night - the picture was everything that I could have hoped for. DVDs are crisp and clear, with a 3D edge to it. I'll be looking to DVE after 200 hours to get the extra few % (can't stretch to ISF calibration at the moment, as much as I'd like to!). Am delighted with Sky plus through the JDB RGB-VGA convertor. It is slightly more saturated in colour than I'm used to - and my reds to bloom a little (I'll look at playing around with red push maybe when the 200 hours are up, but guess I'll have adjusted to it by then). Even my other half is won over - result Only question is on the colour settings for component DVD - I have lowered mine as low as -17 to get a colour that seems right to me. Firstly, is this uncommon - secondly I'm assuming there's no problem doing this in the first 200 hours - it's maxing the settings that causes problems, not minimising them? Again all I can say, if anyone is wavering on purchasing a Panasonic - don't the bang for your buck really is incredible!
