I don't think the Samsung had one, I just know what I've read about IPS Panels and they generally get better than average feedback with viewing angles. Whatever the Samsung had in it, it was an awesome set before it starting going south and needed replacing but it should have been, I paid over twice as much for it in a 40" screen.
I don't know the reason for the current discounts on it at the moment. I was mainly looking at Vizio due to my budget and ran across the 42E60 at Amazon around the same price, read what little I could find on it and I decided to give it a shot. The apps are nice and allowed me to get rid of my Roku box. Colors were horrible out of the box pushing blues but once I searched for some settings and tweaked it looks great.
Overall I'm happy with the set for current price but closer to retail I think their are better options.
