Wish me luck, was just at BestBuy now, setup the exchange to pick up and return my new Samsung 55" LED 8000, getting the PN59D8000 delivered Friday. I am just not satisfied with the LED after one week of ownership. Off angle viewing being terrible with washed out muted colors, and cloudy issues on dark scenes, and the sides of the screen you can see the lights coming off it, when the TV displays a solid color image. But I will say if you sit dead nuts exact center it gives a very bright and vibrant picture, looked really good on BluRay Pixar movies.
I also wanted a slightly larger TV too, 55" is a tad too small for my Great Room. Was debating on the 59" vs 64", but my custom built-in wall cabinet would almost barely fit the 64" Plasma model, but with only like 1/4" to maybe 1/2" clearance at the top, and just 2" total on the side, would have been a very tight fit, it would fit per the specs, but afraid that's too tight, won't allow the TV to get fresh air, or maybe scrape the top of TV getting it in there. Or would that be a nice look, and go for that larger set ?
The 59" will fit comfortably in there, with like 3" to spare on the top, and like 5" total on the side. At least the 59" size over my current 55" will hopefully be noticeable in size ?
Anything I need to do as soon as I get it setup ? Can I watch a BluRay that night right away ? Any settings you recommend ?
