Yep, screen door is more apparent on plasmas, as well as the less than satisfactory white levels. Kind of ironic since plasma blacks are regarded as being excellent, yet nobody talks about the awful white levels they have.
Anyway, yes, the viewing angles are pretty awful with the B750 line. I actually got my 46B750 set exchanged because of excessive clouding, and while my new B750 has less clouds (still some, that's for sure), the viewing angles are just as bad. Anyone who says the B750 has good viewing angles is clearly WAY less critical of these things, and there's nothing wrong with that. But, for those that notice, the viewing angles, after directly comparing this B750 and last year's A650, - are definitely inferior. Anything to the side of sitting bang smack in the middle turns blacks into this odd hue of blue. Definitely not as noticeable during the day or on very bright material, but in a darker room or on darker material, boy is it awful. I reiterate this point because I'm hoping that Samsung can address this glaring issue with next year's model.
I'm certainly not going to defend this TV just because I own it. It has fantastic contrast (after a LOT of calibration), but it definitely has its faults. Viewing angles and clouding/flashlighting are the biggest. Come on, Samsung!
