Just got back from Best Buy. Sorry to disappoint and possibly kill the interest in this thread, but I didn't come home with the LG. Firstly they were out of stock, and couldn't give me an ETA. Secondly, While walking through the bigger tv's and about to go home disappointed I passed by the 42" Plasma's, and what did I see? The Samsung PN42B450 for $699!!! This isn't advertised on the web site (it's $799), and I didn't notice it in the weekly ad. Since my return was already completed, and I would have gone home with store credit, I just couldn't pass it up. It will have to sit in the box for a few days until I get a wall mount from monoprice, and I will have to rearrange my room slightly but It's worth the effort. My parents have two of the 50" version of this TV in their house and they are breathtaking.
Hopefully someone else that has the LG can chime in with a mini review. If anyone considering the LG can make room for a 42", the Samsung is the exact same price.
