The DLP sets are plenty bright - as bright or brighter than any LCD I've seen. In a room with low light you will definitely want to tone down the brightness/contrast to avoid eyestrain/headaches as well as minimize SSE on these sets.

That scares me. Why would they go back to lamps???
As mentioned above, they do still have LED models - just in 61" and 67" sizes now (the "750" series). Others have made the observation that 50" and 56" LED sets aren't the moneymakers for Samsung that they used to be now that LCDs and Plasmas of comparable sizes are starting to come down in price; one way to counter that is to do things cheaper (i.e., offer 56" and 61" sets with bulbs; I don't think they are going to offer the 50" set anymore) or do things bigger (i.e., a 67" set - and maybe bigger, is there a 72" LED set planned?) - looks to me like Samsung is trying to do both and maximize their market share.
