I've had both. "Have had" because, I returned, the LG. Returned the LG, because I also have a PS3 and an A-35, so I decided to wait out the FW for the Sammy. However, I chose the Sammy over the LG, but that was before the LG got all the hacks. I am currently using a different player for my different region movies. Besides those foreign movies and a few SD movies like the Star Wars, Back to the Future, Lord of the Rings and Indiana Jones, I found out, that I don't have any desire to buy or watch Standard Def. movies. So, I don't take much advantage of the Reon. I also don't care about the analog outputs /also, I don't think the Samsung will ever enable internal decoding for DTS-MA/ so I'll bitstream everything. The Sammy is bigger, with louder fan /comparing to the LG, believe me/. The USB on the LG, is a really nice touch too. It kills, me that the LG doesn't have the Reon inside. The Qdeo is good, but I've seen the Reon at work and don't want to settle for less. What I hate about Samsung is their lack of responsibility, total disregard about their customers interest and no promise for support about their product.
I have a Samsung tv, that I now have a problem with, and God help me with dealing with Samsung. They tried to convince me that their tv is not broken, but that's how it is supposed to be /about a problem that is well documented over the internet... that, also reminds me of their favorite answer about the 2 channel Dolby-True HD, sneaky..../
However, next week, after the FW for the Sammy is released, I'll make my final decision. I have the awful feeling, that something is going to be wrong. /like there'll be no bitstream for DTS-MA/, so with 3 words "I hate Samsung". The player has the potential, but not backed up by its creators. It's sad...
Talk to you next week. Good luck to us all
