Dunnersfella: Calm down - The U20 is a $1300 plasma (advertised in a couple of stores last week... don't know if the specials are still on?) not a $4000 TV.
Have you seen the TV in a home? Properly calibrated?
When you say calibrated, is this different from just adjusting the contrast, colour etc in the picture menu ?
My old CRT has finally died (it is 18 years old) and I now need a new TV. I'd rather pay $1300 for a new TV than $2300, so if it is possible to get a good image out of a U20, it would be good. How would one go about this ?
