Woah, sounds awesome. Yeah, like I said, even the 3253 got close (w/good calibration) - but this is as sweet as it gets.
Thanks for posting the pics, that's great.
BTW, for games/ghosting - I doubt there should be too much lag, if any at all worth mentioning - since I only saw it rarely on the 3253 even without game mode on and it was a 8ms display while this one is 6ms. This model probably won't completely remove all lag/ghosting but there are people out there that say even 12ms is good for a Sammy panel since other aspects of its build quality or whatever make their measurement of response time more effective...(than the way you see many dedicated PC monitors measured for response time, for instance).
Well, I think I've decided to just get the 32". I sit pretty close in my setup so I think the size of the 37" would be overkill, sometimes just the light from the 32" screen now seems to burn my eyes out and be overwhelming. Plus, paying less is a much bigger plus than usual at me for the moment.
I don't mind that the screen is not glossy - it allows them to make it cheaper and if the blacks are already good than there is almost no point to it (the 4071, for example, mainly just had it to improve the perception of its contrast ratio).
