Is the UN55B6000 worth the price premium over the LN55B650?

The subject line pretty much says it all so I am just wondering if the $800 price premium of the Luxia is worth it.

Only if space is an issue, otherwise the regular version is better than the LED edge lit.

Just don't buy the B6000 sight unseen. Especially if you're sitting off-angle, it might be a fairly big disappointment. I also found the LN55B650 to be harsh on the eyes. It's only after reading this forum that I made the discovery about the 55B650 containing screens other than Samsung's own. To be frank, I find both a compromise in quality from last year's models.

My wife's parents bought an LN46A650 around thanksgiving last year and it's a superb set. So you consider the new B650 inferior in PQ to the A650? I guess the B6000 is a no go since my wife hates watching TV with the receiver on unless I am there to control the remote so we need something with decent speakers.

i personally find LED series are over vibrant in color, I still prefer LCD or plasma. LN55B650 is a better choice IMO. http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-LN55B650-55-Inch-1080p-Touch/dp/B001WHICF0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=tv&qid=1250439943&sr=1-1
