Hey Guys ( sorry, I posted this in the wrong place before),
I am an SXRD converted to dlp man now. I went through 4 sony sets with problems, and when Best Buy said no more exchanges, I got a refund. Long story short , I had been dealing with some very helpful employees at another Best Buy in the area previously. I called them to thank them for the help and they said they just received the hls-6187 and I should take a look at it. I went today and they had both the sxrd 60 inch and the sammy side by side. I fiddled with both televisions and actually prefer the sammy to the sxrd. I have loved sony for years and years, but imho they have dropped the ball recently, and I have heard a lot of great things about DLP set, so I figured I will now jump onboard the dlp camp. I was also most impressed with the blacks in this new set; they have both sets in a very dark corner with minimal lighting and I could not tell any difference b/t the sony and the sammy black levels ( great for the sammy as this is the SXRD strongpoint). The one thing the sammy seemed better at was the details in king kong and a great wall of china feed; in the feed the sxrd had a blurred look to the bricks on the great wall and on the sammy each one was clearly defined ( the great wall was being displayed from 1/4 mile away or so, therefore I concluded the sammy is great at fine details. To be honest I am sick of the sony set and can only hope this set is great when I get it next weekend. We also went to the samsung site and the official web page states it most definitely has 10 bit processing ( this is from the pdf online but not the manual). Welcome me aboard as I am happy to venture into the DLP camp.
BTW, the Silk Screen Effect seemed no worse than the 60 inch sxrd I am switching over from.
