no probs, I am not gonna bust balls much more, glad you came here instead of some forum where all they talk about is the dynamic contrast ratio.
Many people are hung up on figures, whether they mean much or not is not always clear, even to people who have been into HT for a while.
I can give a few pointers, but not too many.
1)Believe your eyes first and foremost, if it looks good to you then you're all set.
2)When reading reviews from owners, look for more or less a consensus and do not pay attention to any single review too much. People screw up way too much in their setup to be believed.
3)When reading professional reviews, pay attention to other tvs being compared....this hobby is all about bang for the buck for most. Also make sure the positive and negative aspects are applicable to you, for example some TVs suck for gaming but for you it might not make any difference since you do not game.
With that being said I picked up a pn64d550 2 weeks a go an am very happy, no buzz, 3d is awesome, 2d is very good also....the tv is reflective but for me it is not a deal breaker, check it out in person before pulling the trigger.
