Default Panasonic 42PZ80U

So I bought this HDTV from Amazon and put a downloaded break-in movie in it and broke it in for 4 days straight then put in the setting posted by PFC5 and this TV awesome!!! Gaming on my XBOX 360 is better than ever and watching HD-DVD's with the external player is spectacular!!! I would like to thank all the members who pointed me in the direction of this HDTV and I can't wait to get my PS3 now... The size is perfect for my dorm room so also thanks to the members who convinced me to go bigger as well.

Only one question when I watch movies there are black bars on the top and bottom is this okay for the plasma display?

Thanks again and I'm super excited!!!

Just make sure you use the CINEMA settings when watching movies and also make sure you watch as much full screen material as well and you should have no problem with black bars.

Enjoy your new display as I think it is a great bang for the buck display.

I have added a link in my signature called "Settings" with the settings I use that most seem to like to make it easier to access them, and other links discussing them.

Don't forget to vote in the pz80/85 owners poll here:
