I went and exchanged for a PN50C680 Plasma and it has the best picture I have seen. I am super happy I switched to Plasma. I do have a LCD in my well lit room that is necessary for reflection issues.
I agree that they are overrated (LED tech). It is a technology that appeals to people because of the look of these TVs. Slim, sleek, and modern are what people are interested in it seems, which takes a backseat to picture quality. People do want what is new, which is why these newer sets are being marketed hard.
Unfortunately I kind of made an impulse buy during a black friday sale, but soon realized after the purchase that I should have done more research. I was expecting much more out of this technology, but was very disappointed to say the least. After comparing both LED backlight tech and Plasma tech, the choice was obvious for me. The only thing that the LCD had was more of a "pop" in the picture, but that doesn't mean the quality was better, it just stood out more color wise. I would attribute this to the brightness that LED tech is known for.
