Sweet baby jesus, I got my HLT5087S yesterday, and it is AMAZING! After spending some quality time moving my entire entertainment and surround setup, and hooking up the component video cables wrong on two different sources (color blind?), I can testify that this is an amazing television. Colors and black levels are much better out of the box than my Samsung LCD.
TV arrived in good condition. From what I can tell with my limited time with it so far, there are no problems with screen uniformity, no halo, no noticeable bowing or "tilt". The only problem so far has been getting my living room re-arranged. Coming from a 26" LCD this thing just looks enormous!!! I was sitting about 6' away from it last night playing a game and it was too, too close for my eyes. Time to think about moving the couch back!
I'll try to post some pictures later of my setup. Oh, btw, I got the "SAX" model.
