That's good to know. I ordered mine from Cruthchfield on 9/14 though...
I'm currently using last years model 46'' which is the LNS4692 so at least I have a fine setup in the meantime.
I suspect my order will be shipped in.. ..well I don't really know really. You know that's a lot of money to spend, and as each day goes by.. part of me want's to cancel the too expensive 57" and wait a year for it to drop to $4900 range before I actually get it, but then my desire takes over the other way again... and back and forth and so on... and then I think if I waited a year to get it - then the next generation of this 81f series will be out and I'd want that... and so on and so on.. you know how it is.
Well, if they ship it before I make any moves first the decision will be made for me...
My pet pieve is that I want to have exceptional shadow detail though! ..without sacrificing anything else, and sometimes I wonder if I should of got the 52" 71 series instead of an 81 series. I just don't want the fancy LED dark areas to lose any Valid shadow detail ! iow, I want to be able to see a black suit coat which has some lighter black stripes within it, I want the lighter black stripes to clearly show too, without sacrificing on any other fronts.
I've got the settings in this thread and in the setting thread noted to try them.
I noticed drewde changed from the suggested dnie setting of off, etc, for better shadow detail. I'll have to waith though for mine to arrive to play
