One thing great about this thread and our Sammy sets - - between the firmware updates, the panel issues and the EVO kit release(s) - - there will be plenty to discuss.
Fast forward - this thread five years from now....
"Got my panel replacement today - - totally different! Completely clear - - not a spot on it! Zero banding, zero flashlighting, zero anything! Samsung tech talked me into EVO Kit 5 with Ultra HD and "Deep Color." All I can say is WOW! I saw the Masters in 3D this weekend - - it was like Tiger was in your living room! Glad I got my TV fixed in time to watch the Cubbies defend their title. I'll be there on opening day with President Clinton. Did you see the new Samsung 120" OLED that weighs twenty pounds! $25K is still too much for a TV."
