Here are my posts from the Review thread, hope this helps some people:
It's a great set. I love the styling and the picture quality is great. I wouldn't say it's leaps and bounds over the 750 but it's definitely better.
The biggest thing I can notice are the much deeper black levels.
The fact that it doesn't swivel is a bit annoying but I'll get over that. I'm not a big fan of the AMP so I turn it off, and it still looks great, definitely less blur then 60hz sets.
There is no real noise from the TV, no fans (that I can tell) and definitely no buzz. No Halo either.
Playing 360 and PS3, there is a bit of input lag, but it's no worse then most LCD tvs out there. Game mode actually does decrease input lag but I doesnt look as good and you cant control picture options. I tested input lag with Rock Band.
It's a beatiful set, I can highly recommend it, esp it you get a good discount.
Ok here are my thoughts (my personal opinions) on gaming on this set.
FYI, I game more then I watch anything. And I game...a lot.
This set is fine for gaming. If you're used to playing games on an LCD, then you have probably gotten used to a little bit of input lag. If you're coming straight from a CRT, the lag may bother you, no matter what set you get.
This TV has input lag, not much, but it has it, and it's defiintely less then my old sammy 4095D.
One factor that hugely (actually not hugely, more like slightly) effects input lag is what mode you are watching in, and how many "features" you have enabled. Now, I almost always turn off things that would take extra processing and introduce more lag, these things include, dynamic contrast, edge enchancement, DNIE, AMP, etc., etc.
Game mode DOES help to decrese input lag, by a decent amount as well, but like many have pointed out, almost no picture controls are customizable in game mode.
My point is, if you're that worried about lag, use game mode (and SLIGHTLY sacrifice picture quality) or stay with a CRT. In my experience, if you play on an LCD for a while you become accustomed to the lag, and as your skill level increases you adjust to it, without even knowing or thinking about it. (keep in mind this is only for slight lag, severe lag is a whole different story).
My second point is, just don't be too concerned with lag . I still whoop in COD4 and Halo 3, WITHOUT using game mode, and I've never looked back.
LED DIMMING ZONE TEST:
OK people, I did the dimming zone test (46A950) as per that link that was provided a page ago.
I have good news and bad, but knowing people on here, prepare to be devastated .
I count 8 zones horizontal, and 8 zones vertical . Yes, you read that right, 8x8. The same amount in both directions for a measly 64 total zones. Which is significantly less then the 81f according to naruto's test. I didn't believe it either, but I checked, and rechecked. I connected my PC to the TV using D sub if you think that makes any difference.
Now for the good (i guess) news. These zones are not soley one at a time "on/off", not completely at least. If you move the cursor around, yes, you see a new large zone light up as the one you left shuts off. But if you move the cursor very slowly between zones, there are "inbetween" stages, where 2 zones are on with equal or different (but dimmer) brightness. Take that for what it's worth.
Anyway, yeah, I'm a bit dissapointed, BUT to be perfectly honest, the set still looks great, still has the blackest black I've ever seen on an LCD, and yes, I'm still very much happy with my choice.
People wonder why it's so cheap (kinda) and why I (and some other people) were able to get HEAVY discounts, well, now you know!
It would be great if someone else can do this test as well, just to confirm that I wasn't completely spaced out or something.
