You are correct the 42" S4221w is probably a better match than the 38" S3821w for the M502i. Nice set BTW.

I ended up buying a 51" F8500 for $1000 instead of getting an M502i or the Sammy 51F5300 plasma.

So I bought another M422i for $379 shipped no tax from Amazon. Should be here Monday.

No it's typical for the F8500 in particular..which has a noisier than average for plasma blacks (from dithering).
