Nice description, thanks El Matadurr! I hope you will indulge me for one more longer question. I was hoping the S-60 would wow my wife last night. But not only did we not get see one, but the BB Sales associate really got to my wife. He's like, no-no,you do not want a plasma. According to him, plasma tvs use more power (true), do not have superior picture quality (false), lack brightness, whites are grays, and have 1/2 the years of service as a LCD. He did all this by comparing an inexpensive samsung plasma to a pretty decent LED tv. So she's supporting my decision to buy a new tv and even agreed to increase the budget but really thinking that I should buy LCD, in her word, trust the locals not the internet. I do ammunition to address some of this, but could give me your take/reply? thanks buddy!
