This panel (h302) is simply gorgeous and seemingly flawless, I dont see any flaws that have been discussed. Although as I mentioned above I haven't used a calibration disc as yet. Be sure to let us know how yours came out.
Thanks for explanation on model number. Costco always seems to have a slightly different numbering system from other retailers, and the price match reason now makes since. I've also noted my set has the black plastic base as opposed to the crab leg aluminum (I prefer the black plastic base my self, matches my entertainment center. Is the base a Costco thing?
I pursued through this thread noting issues with the display, and have to say I see none of the issues with my 7000. The picture is just unbelievable sharp and bright. I'll try tweaking some of the settings when I get my remote, using the buttons on the back are a pain in the rear.
I started on AVS back when I first got my Samsung HLP5063 at Christmas 2004. At that time trying to find HD content was difficult, now it is commonplace. I use the Direct TV HD package and I'm very happy with it. I eventually added an HD-DVD (we all know what happen there), then went to Blu-ray. So my next evolution is 3D.
This is how the 7000 fits into my entertainment center, it seems custom matched for my Ikea Besta. Behind the 7000 we have neutral grey blinds on a window which helps to set off the picture better.
Also I can highly recommend these Ikea LED lighting strips to add ambient lighting to the neutral gray shades I have behind the 7000. I had these on my Sammy DLP and moved them to the 7000. I'm still in the process of concealing the wires.
My wife uses Skype almost daily to talk to her parents in Russia. I'm thinking of adding the camera to my 7000. Does anyone have any experience with Skype and the camera on the 7000?
