There was a question about the 532H and gaming systems - I did a quick test on the original Xbox and PQ seemed fine (using composite inputs, so I'm sure component will be even better). I haven't played video games in a long time, but it seemed there was some lag (Halo 2 and Ninja Gaiden Black). It could be my reflexes are slow from not playing or I'm not remembering the response time correctly. But there weren't any ghosting issues. Not an expert, thorough response, but hopefully it's somewhat helpful.
On another note, for those with the set, do you have any preferred picture settings? HD channels seem to require different adjustments than SD ones, and while there are presets for HDTV and SDTV, it would be nice to find a happy medium so I'm not switching for each channel. The great thing with the set is that it does have a lot of control over the picture and after seeing the gorgeous HD content, you'll realize what a difference a few adjustments can make. But the out-of-the-box settings are good - it sounds like they took time to calibrate it to real life settings (they have a "home" and "showroom" setting, and that inclusion shows they at least realize how drastically different a set can look in a store). I am usually not a big nature show watcher, but the HD content available is vivid and immersive (like a mini-Imax). HD sports is a new experience - football games show all the players, which makes it easier to follow certain players and aspects without having the camera choose them for you.
After reading the posts on the previous generation, it does seem most, if not all issues raised by the forum were addressed. And that itself is impressive - I don't think many other companies would care what we think and immediately make changes to the next generation. And the apparent ease of firmware updates is huge and should prove to be very useful in extending the life of the unit (and save us the trouble of having a tech come and do updates). Besides the ATI chip issues (which I've been able to get around by using my cable box and upconverting DVD player), the only other comment I have I wished it had 2 HDMI inputs (I'm using a manual HDMI switch from Monoprice - a little inconvenient but perfectly functional). But for the very, very good price it is at right now, I am very pleased and am giving them the benefit of the doubt they will address the ATI issue, which I think they earned given their response to the previous generation. But those of you relying on the set to do the processing may want to hold back for a bit.
So, those of you with both good and bad experiences, please continue to post to this thread - since Syntax seems be listening, it will ultimately help us get closer to the product we want, and will help those still deciding make an informed decison.
