Just picked up the 32 inch version from BB today. They had it on sale for a couple bills off list price. Funny how the equivalent Samsung model (UN32C6500) at the same list price is only available through the Magnolia section. Anyway, here are my thoughts so far using only the FIOS cable box (using HDMI at 1080i fixed) and a laptop HDMI connection. Only had it for a couple hours so far, and I have not tried the tuner, component inputs, any of the Ethernet connections/features or a Blu-Ray player yet.
1) I see VERY little flashlighting on this model; I see just a very small bit along the right edge and none visible on the top, bottom or left edge.
2) The TruMotion 120 is somewhat interesting with 1080i content from the FIOS STB. I do see the effect having some goodness on sports but other content seems to cause some juddering that is still visible no matter what the judder setting is. This isn't really a fair test until I've tried some 1080p/24 material from a Blu-Ray player. It will be a while before I've got a Blu-Ray hooked up.
3) Blacks are really nice compared to some other LCD sets I have. I definitely notice a shiny/inky performance. The brightness is off-the-charts. I've not done any calibration yet, just running with slightly reduced backlight and contrast from the "normal" setting.
4) Use on a computer seems very nice so far; totally usable as a monitor. I have moderate myopia (I need reading glasses) but sitting 3-4 feet away at 1920x1080 with no zooming is very comfortable. I had to set the aspect ratio to "Just Scan" to eliminate the overscan and see all the pixels. For the laptop I'm running in GAME MODE which defeats any of the TruMotion features. With it set this way, there is only a minor lag in video response, I'd say in the 10's of milliseconds without running any sort of formal tests.The negatives (very minor ones):
Having such a thin screen is pretty cool, but I wish they had designed the input jacks on the rear so that entry/exit is vertical instead of horizontal. Your cables basically stick straight out the back unless you have right angle connectors. Contrast this with the edge-lit 6500 series Samsung which has its HDMI ports designed to connect "in parallel" with the rear panel - very nice! Although the Sammy has them exiting towards the SIDE and very near to the left edge of the panel. So if you were to wall mount the Samsung and articulate the TV by swinging the left side out, you will see all your cabling glory right there.
The other slightly odd thing is that the AC cord is permanently mounted to the panel. So if you are planning a wall mount installation, you cannot pull the AC separately before you mount everything; you'll have to mount the TV, THEN pull the AC cable through the wall using the male/plug end. Unless of course you plan to mount an AC receptacle in-wall behind the TV. In that case, you're also stuck with the entire cord having to be folded up since you cannot replace it with a short one.
One other little nit is the side component input. These are implemented with a pair of 1/8" (3.5mm) 4-conductor jacks - one for the Y/Pr
/Pb video and the other for audio L/R plus a composite video. In the box you get a couple of cable adapters that convert to the normal RCA style jacks. The adapters are made with very thin (cheap looking) cables; about the size of a thick headphone cable. I have just never seen this before on a television. I suppose most people would be using that side input for temporary connections such as a digital camera, camcorder or video game and the adapters they give you are probably equivalent to what you would get with your camera/game anyway so I don't consider this a big deal.
So far, so good. Helluva PC monitor, and everything is great with the FIOS STB.
