still a little on the fence here, but appreciate the input man
Well from the prices I checked a week ago on the 600m thats still about 1000k less then your 141 price plus the stand for about $200, so its about $800 difference which is no small amount. You may be able to get the stand for free like I did on the 500m I ordered.
I am not going to get into a which is better discussion because I only know what I have read here from other forum posts but I can tell you that my 500m is disgustingly good looking. The common consensus though is that unless you are going to have your set professionally calibrated the tv's are essentially the same for most people.
I guess it all comes down if you want the ISF modes for professional calibration, how much of a videophile you are, and how much that 800-1000 dollar difference weighs in.
I dont know if anyone has posted yet who has gotten the latest batch of 600m's but the rumor is they have sorted the packaging issues out so the shipping should not be an issue anymore.
