I bought a 50" G20 on Sunday for $1099. Got it home, played with the picture for a few hours, watched some football, and then found myself listening to the TV and looking at the internet on my cell phone.
I traded it out yesterday for a 50" S2 for $799. Best Buy price matched Conns.
I'm totally TOTALLY happy with the S2 at this point. Especially for the damn price. That G20 had some fancy features but $300 less on the S2 and the picture, in my opinion, is just as good.
My wife was pretty hot when I returned the G20 because she didn't see how a cheaper TV could have a picture that was comparable. She got up and watched the news this morning and woke me up to tell me I was right.
My room can be well lit or dark and I haven't seen a problem. I came from a 3 year old 42" Vizio LCD. No complaints from me yet.
Make the decision for yourself. If I listened to everyone here I'd still feel guilty for spending over $1K on the TV and listening to the G2. LOL! Listening to...
