I have to say that casually observing budget panels walking through a Target store recently during several consecutive Sundays as I shop where they are starting to add more and better panels that a low end Samsung LED 40" C5000 I think it was - It was the best performing panel easily against all the others in it's size - blew away a Panny Plasma next to it and was far less reflective (PDP was reflective constantly during feeds like a mirror whereas the Samsung was only reflective during black scenes and store lighting at Target is Bright) and surpassed the Vizio, Sony, Westinhouse and others.
Of course if you place it up against the higher end Samsungs, LG's that may differ but I found it to be quite excellent for one of the lower ends C5000 panels. To me it's worth it if you a smart shopper and of course you have the budget resources and if there may be higher end features one may not need or desire.
