I have noticed a few times in this thread others saying that AMP brings performance "close to" plasma levels. Out of curiousity, why not just buy a decent plasma? I am returning my 52A650 because of flashlights in the corners that are aggravating while watching movies and am not sure if I am going to rebuy it. I just wanted to know why owners chose 120hz LCDs such as this one as opposed to a plasma, since I'm not sure what tv to purchase at this point.
The existence of TBE/TCE (although not as bad as the 71 series) bothers me (it's more noticeable in certain video games/movie scenes) and I've been noticing the emeregence of Vapors/Aura much more lately. When I first got the TV, I didn't notice any Vapors/Aura except when playing Mass Effect, but now notice them all the time when playing COD4 (I could have missed this problem at first I guess, but I'm not sure how).
At this point, although the reset problem is hopefully fixed, I'm not sure if I'm going to rebuy this set or get something different; in which case, I was wondering why owners chose 120hz LCDs like the A650 as opposed to a plasma
