Brought this home last night. Set up was a breeze. It's a very pretty looking set. Out of box settings was in Standard mode and too garish for my dark basement. Stole some settings from c550 thread. I have zero buzz. Hooray!! The picture is extremely clean and crisp. Maybe best I have seen in that department. The blacks are unfortunately an absolute joke. Of all the tv's I have owned V10, B860, C550, PK550, G20, C680, EX500, XBR9, B460, S1 and the blacks on this set are noticeably lighter than any of them. It's actually horrendous. I also have witnessed the brightness/black pops that occur. They tend to happen when something darker is showing i.e. Valkerie which was on cable last night. The colors seem great and motion is fine. I am going to let it get to 100 hours then I will calibrate it using Eye One LT and HCFR to dial in to 31 ftl which is what I like in the completely dark basement. It will take about a week. I will then compare it side by side with pictures to my 40EX500 which is dialed in beautifully at 31ftl so you can compare the blacks. I am hoping blacks improve and maybe with calibration the annoying pops go away. Otherwise, this goes back. I haven't opened the 3d glasses to test that yet because no point if 2d won't work.
