Released April, 2009
The Pros:Colors look great out of the box, can ignore configuration if you want and still be happy. Black levels are very deep, don't wash out into greys and still offer a lot of detail. Refresh is extremely quick, great for sports or other fast-moving action.
The Cons:Noticeable buzzing typical of plasma TVs.
