The blacks and the gradations of grey to black are better then any other HDTV and this is what creates great contrast. A couple of the Panasonic plasma's are excellent too, although slightly below the excellence of Pioneer. If you have a very bright room you can also consider one of the very good Samsung LED LCD's, although in the larger screen sizes they are quite expensive compared to plasma's.
Gee what a great idea...buy a product that will no longer be made in which service in the future is gray at best.
There are good buys on the Pontiac too.
