Watching Sky Atlantic HD at the moment, Attenborough. Picture looks amazing.
Are you happy with the GT50 now? I know you had some regrets about selling the Kuro. Has the dirty screen effect become any less prominent? I can see it clearly on the rugby right now, though it's not as distracting as when watching football (probably because camera pans are slower and less frequent).
For the sake of absolute clarity, I should also add than I'm in no way associated with the Anonymous movement or their activities.

I think an "anonymous" avatar is more befitting of my sensibilities. I could go with this:
For the record, I've never hacked a website of any description.
Looks good! Go for it!

The current Draconian government would probably charge me with treason for daring to suggest there's anything wrong with trickle-up economics. Anyway, I won't turn this into a political thread.
I'll contemplate an alternative avatar, perhaps stripes of lighter and darker colour gradation.
In short. I regret selling the Kuro. I still have highly visible DSE.
Running the tv in until maybe end of March, then returning to some brighter settings. If IR returns, or DSE is still highly visible, JL can deal with my complaints, and I can assure you, there will much complaining.
Nice avatar by the way.

Nice avatar, strapped!
Sounds like we're on the same page. I've been meaning to call John Lewis for the last few days so my complaints are on record. My issue isn't with John Lewis, it's with Panasonic thinking it's fine to sell defective TVs, then sweeping legitimate complaints aside with the phrase "within specification."
If the retailer is aware of my position, any future negotiations will hopefully be amicable.
Cheers BB. I think it works on a number of levels.
I think gel will be making a purchase sometime soon.
Second hand GT50 anyone?
GT50 is staying whatever for sure - I love it! Can't you tell? Might just get moved into another room - will see. Might see if there are any announcements from Panasonic like we are quitting plasmas then I probably will.
If you want to sell me your GT50, subject to suitable audition for screen uniformity problems, and put the money toward a ZT, you'd have my attention!
The ZT60 won't fit on my stand and I think it is a little bit out of my price range, I will be reading all the reviews and comments with interest though. Just doing a YouTube video of some football so you can check it out, but no I will definitely be keeping the GT50.

The main level it works on being actually having an avatar!

Yeah, there's that one; but it's also political comment, a statement of sensibility, and hi-fi forum appropriate.
A very interesting read about plasmas:

I am getting there with the YouTube video - forgot how to do it!
No dirty screen, no vertical banding, no lines, no braking up of screen - perfect!
If you need more, just let us know.
