Alright, Im not really willing to wait till this summer to buy a TV (for financial reasons). However, Id like to get a 3D Display. From what Ive gathered, the first wave will be offered by the C level samsungs (with the squid legs stand), the panasonics and LG's. right now, the LG LE9500 looks the part for me (its the local dimming). Im assuming its coming out in April and $3'800 is dooable. HOWEVER, I just bought a brand new Onkyo HTS 7200 and it supports HDMI 1.3a only. Im assuming that the 3D portion of the LE9500 will require HDMI 1.4 so I would'nt be able to run my display through my AV reciever. So, would it be wiser to wait until these 3D samsungs come out and possibly drive the price of the UNB8500 with local dimming down to maybe 2'800 or 2'900 (does anyone know if these prices will on UNB8500's will actually drop?)
So, do I wait for the brass ring (LE9500) or buy now (UNB8500) and just assume that the differences (minus the 3D) are negligible?
