Jumped on this in exchange for a Panasonic 55UT50 plasma I ordered a couple weeks ago. The buzzing drove me nuts, and the tech couldn't fix it.

LED was more what I was leaning toward when I started shopping around since I do a lot of gaming and watch a lot of ESPN--so worrying with IR on the plasma was another concern (and something that was starting to annoy me too).

Jumped on it. Arriving Friday, and pushing a Samsung LN52A750 out of the living room. Not sure how I'm going to break it to the Sammy...

Talk nicely to it as you lead it behind the barn and shoot it.

[ludicrous]Actually, I have an incredible idea for a TV that 1. isn't doing much, and 2. could do more than just ebaying it out for zilch.

Turn it into a table. I might start a thread on this very topic soon. It won't be touch screen, but it might be a hoot.[/ludicrous]

In-Plane Switching involves arranging and switching the molecules of the liquid crystal (LC) layer between the glass substrates essentially in a plane parallel to these glass plates.

HOWEVER, be warned: Not all IPS are created equal, and some of the wide angle viewing claims of the ET5 I find to be wrong IRL. Many Sony's, for instance, do not employ IPS and beat the IPS panels I've seen hands-down.

Sounds like another marketing term for a technology that doesnt work very well but adds to the consumer cost.

No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die!

Viewing angles are one thing I've never cared about. I don't have or want kids, and thus have no reason to want a big house, so we'll always be in condos or small houses where the only place to watch TV is the couch directly in front of it.

$899.99 on Frys.com with free shipping.

http://www.frys.com/product/6994097?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG

Sent in for price adjustment on my Amazon order. Hopefully it's still in stock when they check.

Edit: Got the $60 refund from Amazon. So now it only ended up being being $20 more than I paid for the UT50 plasma (plus 2 pairs of 3D glasses) that I returned due to buzzing and IR. biggrin.gif
