"Not bad at all." So far the set is -largely- untweaked. All I have done are Convergence 1 and 2 plus the standard black, white, sharp, saturation and hue calibrations using Avia. My only input source right now is a Panasonic RP91, which I am honestly not that impressed by when it comes to its ability to deinterlace. The scaling stuff is nice, but since my TV does not lock into full mode it really doesn't add a lot of value for me. It's a really nice player with nice features, but the banding I see across gradients just looks so bad to me.. And I know it's the source, not the TV. As for the TV itself, I am very impressed with what you get for the money. The cabinet is well made, it's sturdy, etc. The remote, while nothing amazing, is adaquete. The picture quality as it is impresses me, and I know once it's calibrated and I get some 1080i content on there it will be even better. My next goal is to get my HTPC together and see how much better TheaterTek looks w/ my Radeon and a Key Digital VGA->Component Transcoder than a regular DVD player does.. I might swap my RP91 for an RP82 also to see if the Sage chip is visibly better..
