Professional reviewers still picked this over other 1080p sets and most said that at your distance the 5080 had more detail anyway.http://www.hometheatermag.com/lcds/2...ce/index7.html
please explain why you are thinking about getting the 550.
While I think that the 5080 is better, let's be fair to the 550. First, it will have a more detailed picture than the 5080 -- more than twice as detailed, as a matter of fact. From nine feet, chances are that doesn't matter, and there's a whole lot more to picture quality than resolution. Still, the 550 is more detailed.
Also, no calibrator can get the 5080 to have color as accurate as the 550. It's just not possible.
