Newbie, has been reading. I received the TV last friday from Crutchfield. Delivery was flawless, it was actually white glove delivery so they come to the house, put it on the stand, plug it in and turn it on.
Picture is awesome. Of course, this is my first big screen. I mean big. I have use the setup suggested at the beginning of this thread.
So for people who are on the fence, just get it. I think Crutchfield have discontinued the products. They still have the 67" thought. This may be the last batch of 61" that we can get. Vanns is available again. I was going to order it from them but they ran out. Then Crutchfield was putting it on sale. This was before Conns was putting it on sale. So that is why I got from Crutchfield.
Anyway, highly recommended for anybody who are on the fence. Can't beat the price compare to 60" Plasma or LCD, at least twice may be 3x that.
