That being said, the LD650 line had the best LCD panel in the LD line , with low input lag, and great picture quality.
Well, I'm back, not to prove you wrong, but I did say I would be back to comment after my TV came.
I bought the 47LD650 after a member here recommended it. The TV is great and the picture is outstanding. I primarily bought it for gaming. I think the TV is somewhat too big for gaming, but that is my only complaint. The lag is not noticeable, if it is present at all - I'm a young (22 year old) gamer and I'm very easily bothered by lag. I play FPS games where having low lag is very important, and I will say that the LD650 is great as far as that goes, whereas I have stopped using other TV's for gaming because of lag. I haven't used Phase700's picture settings (or anyone else's settings) whatsoever, but one of my favorite things about the TV is that changing picture and audio modes is extremely easy. I can switch between Standard, Sport, Game, and Cinema modes very easily. It was also easy to figure out how to set "custom modes".
My speaker (or something else) seems to have something wrong with it. When I turn on the TV, for a while (a matter of minutes) the TV emits a low but audible whining noise. If I plug in an audio cable (to the 'headphone' jack on the side of the tv) the whining stops. However, the speaker doesn't work with the audio cable, despite the fact that it worked with the same cable a week ago. (The cable still works; I tried it with my IHome). The reason I think the problem is with the speaker is because of the audio cable issue; I'm assuming that the speaker also causes the whining noise (although other computer parts can emit the same noise).
Overall, a great TV although I may end up returning it and probably will get a replacement unit.
