Pros

black levels are deep and show lots of detail in darker scenes

1 agrees

price has come down quite a bit since release, can often get an amazing deal on an unused unit

1 agrees

colors are very natural and true to life

Cons

audio output is HDMI or Optical only, no RCA audio output support - seems odd considering the legacy support elsewhere in the design

2 agree

noticeable motion jitter in fast-moving video that slowly decreases as the system is broken in

1 agrees

no real extras, like a USB connection, 3D capability or LAN

1 agrees

speakers are located at the bottom and point toward the floor, end up fairly muffled so they get turned up louder than you would have otherwise to understand what people are saying

1 agrees

reflects light on the screen readily, almost mirror-like

Nice, colors and contrast. This is the new model that replace The PZ80.
Contrast is higher but there is one thing i don't like.. There is no RCA output for audio....
If you have a Home theater with HDMI and audio Optic in your ok.
