An audio lag while certainly irritating isnt enough to put this set under a samsung but thats my humble opinion
But you are comparing a LCD to an LCD. I was comparing the 64D8000 to it, which is a Plasma vs the LC80's LCD. I am no videophile as I have explained many times before
but I know what looks good, and the 64d8000 looks better then the lc80. To each his own.
To add a bit more 'feedback' When they came to get the 80 inch TV the installer actually said 'yeah my cousin got one, and I told him to return it, because of they sound sync issue.' I about fell out of my seat. I told him thats the exact reason I was returning this. And he said 'yeah, and you better not play video games on it, its slow responding.' I told the guy 'wow you just made me feel a whole lot better, I thought I might be crazy as I was trying to explain this to the ABT service center, and they thought I was crazy.'
Anyways, I understand mine is just one of the many opinions, and its only valid for me, but I am telling everyone, SEE the tv first. Don't make the rookie mistake I made, I ordered it sight unseen.
GL with whatever folks get, including the 'new version' of this tv (the point in this thread). Hopefully its rocking!
