The common consensus though is that unless you are going to have your set professionally calibrated the tv's are essentially the same for most people.
I guess it all comes down if you want the ISF modes for professional calibration, how much of a videophile you are, and how much that 800-1000 dollar difference weighs in.
My understanding is that if you are in a light controlled room, there isn't a difference. On the other hand, if your room is not light controlled and is fairly bright in the daytime, then the ISF mode for daytime viewing cranks up the brightness. So it comes down to your room/viewing environment.
