Waiting for Samsung 55 inch 8500 to arrive at ABT this week but there is a chance it may not come in.Trying to find a 55 inch LEd replacement in case I cant get it.Lots of good press on the 55 inch Toshiba 670u series after you obtain the firmware to get rid of flashlight issues.Does anyone think the 670u has pq comparable to the 8500 or is there anything out there like the 8500?Want a set now but may just have to wait for Samsungs 2010 replacement for the 8500.

Matt

IMHO, the XBR8 is the next best thing, followed by the LH90 or LHX. The SV670U is also good though.

I am an XBR8 owner and biased in that direction. That said, the Toshiba is very good. You'd get a lot of bang for your buck and solid black levels.

USE THE SEARCH BUTTON BEFORE POSTING QUESTIONS.

I'm the Toshiba 55SV670U owner. I would like to say this is my best choice I have ever made my mind.

I went to the shop and see the Sharp, Sony, Samsung (7xxx series) and LG 55LH90, I knock out the sony and samsung stuff at the first glance, because the dark level is quite worse compare to LG, Sharp and Toshiba.

Then, I get rid of LG, cuz of the poor performance of 240hz (influent screen display) and plastic border.

Needless to say that the Sharp and Toshiba they are gorgeous and really competitive, but eventually I decide the Toshiba, because of 55inch, Sharp only provides 52.

FYI and sorry for the criticism to those brands' owners not Toshiba

Should read fluctuating backlight. Officially known as floating blacks.
