You're luckly you domt have a transreflective screen. Both my school laptop and my older toughbook has it. Everything blue becomes green. Gray becomes white. Its uttery rubbish. But you can turn of the backlight and still see everything on the screen.
That sounds... awful.

Panasonic VIERA TC-P60ST30 60-Inch 1080p 600 Hz 3D Plasma HDTV

I recently inherited some money from an annuity I'd been waiting on for years and made two big purchases: some expensive new camera equipment, and this TV. Amazon has a really great deal on it this weekend. From what I've read there is very little difference in picture quality between this and the more expensive model, the GT30.

This TV is replacing a Westinghouse 42" 720p LCD television. I imagine the difference in picture quality will be huge. I have had the new TV since Tuesday but not watched it yet because I'm doing the responsible thing and running break-in slides for the first 100 hours to evenly age the phospors and help prevent burn-in.
60" is massive. You must have a very big living room! I think the most I'd want would be around 48"-ish. My nearly 8+yr old Sony 36" CRT is developing a screen flicker I can't fix... I wonder if it needs professional degaussing... I doubt there are any TV repairmen left these days, so if it gets any worse, I may just bite the bullet can get a new TV instead. Is plasma still the top technology? I heard that LED-backlit LCD was the current fave.

When are we likely to get cost-effective big OLEDs?
