I'd like to be decisive but can't seem to pull the trigger between this TV (HL67A750) or the 63" Sammy Plasma. I have an 8yr-old rear-projection (Sony 43KPTV..Non-HD). I've been reading the threads for both sets for the last few weeks. Taking cost out of the equation, I am leaning towards the DLP set because I have a 2yr-old boy who loves to smack the screen when he sees something he doesn't like and getting the cheaper DLP. I know, crazy logic...but I've seen the 67" at Best Buy and made some adjustments to the TV as recommended by some of the previous posts and this made for a better picture; although with all the LCDs and Plasmas hanging around, it does seem duller as expected. I'm rambling but I think this 67" is a great buy especially considering that it is only $400 more than what I spent for my TV 8yrs ago (and that's not even adjusting for inflation which makes this even cheaper).
I'll wait until january before pulling the trigger on this. I can't imagine that Samsung is going to do anything significantly different for 2009 with their DLP line except maybe offer a 72" version. The Laservue, with amazingly only one real review available to date, does not seem priced fairly in the least.
I'll humbly take the award for lamest post ever. Hopefully I can redeem myself when I post pics of the TV in my Salamander Design unit that is coming next month.
