Sounds good. We got the Samsung plasmas 50 and 59 for displays sent to us. Both seem to have issues with their component inputs. Will you be checking all input methods or just hdmi?

Thanks for bring up the issue and yes I'll check the component video inputs. Our PN51E8000 and PN51E6500 showroom demo display component video inputs work perfectly.

Good to hear. It just strikes me as odd that both displays would have the same issue

Sigh, I knew I should not have volunteered to coach my son's baseball team - sounds like a great event! Are you taking reservations for the 9th annual yet? ;)
Some things are more important. ;) I would not give up coaching hockey for any of this. :T

Hockey? I think that must be something like that snow stuff that is not understood by people of South Louisiana upbringing. Now baseball is something that us LSU boys get.

Does anyone else think it's too bad Runco doesn't get in on this? I've been curious how they compare for a long time and you just don't hear much concrete about them. It would be interesting to get them on the floor as a level set....

Robert,
Can you take us through your evaluation method?

Also can you ask each of the reps to clearly explain what exactly their branded features do. That is clear explanations of "live color" "black correction" etc...?

I knew I waited to buy for some good reason. :scratch:

Does this manufacturers line-up mean Vizio is not in contention and/or not bothering to compete. I know bottom dollar Wall-mart brand but it was a Sam's Club great buy a few years back. I've been very happy..., hopefully not in my ignorance, though I understand almost anything is as good as Vizio.

I look forward to the testing. Thanks!!!
