I'm with ambesolman that it isn't worth paying more for something like the E8000, which just adds more features without any PQ improvement. You could buy a lower model and save money. FWIW, the 50ST50 can be had for $1,000 or less (and so can the 55UT50). It was $900 +tax through EPP, if it's still available (the 55" ST50 was $1,025 but sold out, last I checked). I would choose the ST50 myself, but if you prefer Samsung, then you should consider the E7000. Personally, there is no way that I wold buy the 55LM6700.
