I believe prices on the 8500's are creeping up again. Of course they are. I was one of those people waiting for the H7000.Just a bad year for people who wanted to buy a plasma, but couldn't make the timing and budget work.
F**king Samsung, man. I'm not surprised about the H7000--no one should be--but it doesn't soften the blow.
Least they could've done was slap some kind of AR filter on that H5000. The black levels sound so good. They could've exited stage left with the best budget plasma of all time.
From CNet's review of the 8500:Black level: The F8500 can produce some of the deepest levels of black of any display I've seen, beating the depth of all but the very best plasmas and local dimming LEDs.

I thought Ted Childress was the father?Edit: Found this handy glossary on the web explaining some of the family connections. Still...
I think so. I think that is what it boils down to. Errol and the Ledeauxs were members of the family, did the dirty work for the aristocratic Tuttles and such, until Errol decided to take it even further. That is when/why the Tuttles popped up to try and hijack the investigation.
