Earlier this year I replaced my old set with a UN60C6300. Dark levels and flashlighting/clouding issues drove me nuts as I like to watch mostly movies at night in a darkish environment and it just didn't work for me. Got a PN59D8000 instead, and couldn't be happier...no issues (no buzzing, peeling, brightness fluctuation, etc). It is a fugly stand compared to the smaller pedestal the other set had but that's my only complaint of any substance. The 3d and apps were a bit of a bonus but not really a requirement on my part; I do like the 3d on appropriate material (cgi/animated) and use it occasionally, but for most material I think it doesn't work well (not the set, just the medium in it's current state).
"I realize that somebody playing free music isn't as commercial as a hamburger stand. But is it because you can eat a hamburger and hold it in your hand and you can't do that with music? Is it too free to control?" - Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) discussing commercial success in the music biz
