oh, that's interesting. I'll have to see one in person then and hopefully it isn't as bad as it looks, with PQ over aesthetics, I'm down to get the 65" if the stand isn't a hazard.

To the owners of this set, would the stand withstand an...

not having 5.1 will be a deal breaker for me, for that, you're better off keeping your cable box, but as far as PQ goes, I'd say they're about the same as I don't notice much of a difference

The 3d in this one is very immersive with lots of depth and detail that I honestly couldn't imagine seeing this any other way, very much like Avatar with much more clarity IMO. Easily top 3 3d.

I wonder if statistics would show that 3d is often imported to the states, unless we at AVS and other forums are the few that actually do import and most really don't care.
