Found out that our local cable has all the HD channels running through with their analog downfeeds (unadvertised benefit, and I may just be the lucky one, but not gonna call and ask if that's normal!) and the pic is amazing.
Thanks to everyone here! With the reviews, settings, FW updates, fixes, etc. etc., I've found the TV that will keep us happy for some time to come. Even the wii, with it's 480p resolution, looks stunning! My next purchase will be a BluRay player with wifi, but my current 1080i upstep DVD (also Samsung) is phenomenally more fun to watch right now!
My only minor complaints are the buzz from extremely bright scenes (can't hear it when there's actual sound playing too), and the glare/reflections on the huge glass screen, but it's worth it for the sports and action movies being soooooooo smooth. None of our friends, with their LED and LCD screens that cost 2-3x as much, get such a smooth response from their sets!
