you've pretty much stated everything I could tell you already.


the f5300/f5500 will be the most similar for the money, but you have the pentile 60" to worry about. can you fit a 64"? remember...

yes, game mode allows FAR more calibration settings, and should result in a more accurate picture.


that being said, I use PC mode, and don't plan on going back. I find it the better overall...

highly unlikely.


if they couldn't make a profit selling the vt60's when mass produced, they'll never make a profit selling them piece-meal. they'd probably have to charge 10grand per set to...

default warm2 setting on mine looked terrible. I would actually say it was yellow, not green, but it bothered even me(and I'm usually not sensitive to color issues)

yeah, you should be able to. switch it to warm2 if it's not there already. but that will likely make it TOO warm. but you should have more luck adjust the color(start with just the 2pt controls)...

please don't quote nice, eastcoast or abe's for information. they are misrepresenting many of the TV's in order to attract buyers. if you try to buy one of the 'non Samsung panels' they will call you...

well it's obvious which one is brighter overall. but does look like the f8500 might have brighter blacks as well.

I'm just saying, it's not about whether or not there is a stuck/dead pixel, but whether or not it's noticeable from a reasonable viewing distance that makes it an issue.
