Is the 42S2 better than the s1? I'm not so sure yet.
Thanks for any tips!
The S2 has so far demonstrated that it has MARGINALLY darker blacks. Shadow detail (Gamma) is better on the S1. With the whole black level issue thing, I'd go S2 for a more gradual rise in black level. But if you can catch a closeout deal on the S1, thern by all means go for it. Forget the G10. THX is a picture mode, and only applies to that specific mode. The THX mode is for videophiles only, and seems dim to many. And unless you contact a technician to apply an update, then the THX mode has a green tint.
Go for either a closeout S1 or get an S2. Its really pretty much the same set overall though, with the exception opf the bezel.
I own an S1, it has a really glossy bezel. Fingerprint magnet, but looks nice
The S2 bezel is a harder, smudge resistant bezel. "The S2 series also feature Clean Touch bezel (not on the 58 and 65 inch) designed to keep the TV bezel looking its best with less fingerprints. "
