So, the delivery guy literally just picked up my Samsung LED LCD UN55D8000. I had a Samsung plasma for years and thought my wife would like the much thinner screen and silver set, but, after days of tweaking, I just couldn't take the picture issues (glows in the corners, on the edges, etc).
I should have just listened to my gut and went with a new plasma screen. I am basically waiting to make sure my return goes through properly and am thinking about either getting the 51" 2011 Samsung plasma or waiting until the 2012 Samsung and Panasonic sets come out.
When it's THIS close to the new models, any thoughts on the relative merits of going with the latest model 2011 (for me, the Samsung PN51D8000) or just going with the newer ones? I have done a fair amount of research, and it looks like the Panasonic has the slightly better picture quality (the 2011 Samsung's picture is a bit darker, but may be improved in 2012)...or is this all for naught, is everyone basically waiting for the 2012's?
Never been in this position before, with the ones coming out so soon..
anyway, looking forward to the warm (literally) glow of a new plasma soon. It's funny watching a 2007 42" after a week with a 2011 55"...
