I wonder if Samsung has used the F8500 design for the LED version in Europe why they don't use the F8000 design for the Plasma? Sure the TV has to be thicker but the floating effect is totally worth it.
i've never been one to buy a tv based on anything other than it's picture, but i remember going in to my shopping thinking something along the lines of 'just go with panasonic no matter how pretty and thin the samsungs are, the panasonics have better blacks and a better picture'. then i start looking and panasonics got this pretty sweet looking fancy stand, and at least they tried to be flashy with the little silver trim. then i see samsung's actually made a good performing tv, so i check it out expecting the overly stylish designs they are known for and then bam. haha, totally caught me off guard and i didn't like it at all.
i still wouldn't call it pretty, but unique can be it's own appeal sometimes too. my biggest complaint/concern right now is that the 64" stand will be wider than my tv stand. that probably won't look the greatest hanging over the edge.
