just got my 60xbr800 yesterday. the pic quality is acceptable in SD (garbage in garbage out, what can one expect?), and fine to very good in HD. i just don't see what all the fuss is with all the people saying that this is a horrible tv etc. it doesn't have the best black levels, but it is not unacceptable ( i know that that is a subjective term ). overall, there are pros and cons, as far as i can see. the lack of a need to worry about burn in (some do say that that is an overstated problem with plasmas) is worth something, however little. so far, i'm reasonable pleased, though it's only day 2. i have two or three green stuck pixels. can't see it from roughly 3-4 feet away.
