That's the 75"

Wow, must be a big room! I like it a lot - very clean and simple.

How is the glare? My biggest complaint with this set has to be how freaking reflective it is :(

I've searched for things but the results only seem to show google movies and youtube.

Is it supposed to also search netflix, amazon, and hulu by default?

Personally, the benefit of having built in apps is that the TV is directly wired to the router. Much better and more stable internet connection that way. But yeah - not a deal breaker by any means if...

Lol @ comparing a custom house to a pair of speakers. I don't know why you love Vapor so much, but they are clearly in the wrong here.

FYI, that's a home address. If you call the courthouse in Jefferson Co, MO you can find out if Vapor has been sued before and how many times and what the disposition was.

And if you go to the Samsung threads, you see those actual owners complaining (with the 8500 too) about the uniformity repeatedly.

I know you are adamant about this, but 5 different people (2 of which really know about TVs, and Sonys in particular) told me the 65 and 75 are also edge lit.

You can get great deals at Magnolia (and best buy, but Magnolia is way easier IME) on open box or end of life stuff.

Agreed - in fact, I was very impressed by the black levels on this set coming also from an 8 year Sony XBR4. That set had tons of clouding also - but unless I was looking for it, I never noticed it.

I would definitely play with the settings. The TV does a LOT of stuff in the background which may be affecting your picture. Definitely give it a shot before you decide.

The 900c won't likely be any better in picture quality. It's selling point is the thinness of the panel - but it's still edge lit without local dimming.
