Thanks. Believe it or not, 45% standard cable, 45% DVD's, 10% Blu-rays.

It appears the Panny is out because it doesn't seem to have an anti-glare screen. mad.gif

The Sammy F550 also does not have an Anti-Glare screen.

The only Samsung this year with an Anti-Glare screen is their flagship F8500.

The Panasonic models with the Anti-Glare screen are the S64, ST60, VT60, and ZT60 models.

I bought the Samsung PN43F4500 three weeks ago. Loved the set. Last weekend, it started into the automatic shut down and start up issue. This has been a known issue on Samsung TVs for 6 years apparently. There was even a class action suit filed. After 3 calls to Samsung support, they had no answers other than to send out a tech. I told them no thanks. I'm not having a tech repair a 3 week old set. I took it back and bought the Panasonic TCP42x60. I don't have it yet, I'm waiting for it to ship to my local store so I have no opinion on the Panny...but beware of the Samsung.
