I am a not so proud owner of a Samsung UN55D6000 that I got for a "Great" deal of $1098 at sam's club in late november 2011. Long story short I have taken this panel back and forth several times because flashlighting and viewing angle. I finally got one with "minimal" flashlighting but still not acceptable.
I have until mid to late may to return this panel. The viewing angle on this thing is absolute GARBAGE. My parent's 2008 52" CCFL Samsung looks good at all angles. Unless you are almost dead center of this tv the pictures is completely washed out and even gives people's skin a reddish tint.
My next complaint is that even in Game Mode, this tv still has input lag when playing Call of Duty: MW3. Maybe this lag is just inherit in all LED tvs these days...
I would love to have some advice on whether or not I should exchange this thing and what for. I will only purchase a TV from Sam's Club or Walmart due to their lengthy return policy. Considering the issues I have had, 30 days from best buy would not be long enough. Not to mention the *******s who inspect the thing when your return it.
During mid february I picked up a Sony 55NX720 for 1499 from sears but returned it because of poor sound quality and being scared of having an issues after the 30 day return policy. Oh how much I regret that decision... The off angle viewing was MUCH better, ZERO flashlighting, and no noticeable lag in game mode.
So my question is what should I exchange this for? The new ES6100 by Samsung? Another Sony? Except Sam's Club offers no Sony and Walmart only offers the EX620 which I heard is as awful as the D6000.
Or maybe a Sharp? I have heard Sharp performs well in Game mode as well. And I know some might suggest Plasma but would like to steer clear of that technology. Sam's and Walmart also do not offer any good plasmas.
Sorry for ranting I just wanted people to know my issues. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
