Second, what is this "peeling effect" I'm hearing about and should it be a concerned with this model?
Third, is there sound issues or lack of with this model?
Forth, how is the PQ compared to the mid to upper models of their LEDs?
Screeen is glossy and reflective when off, I do get some reflection throughout the day with display on, not bad. Definitely, want to consider room and placement if glare is going to be an issue. I, too, like the matte black of some other models, but the PQ on this is so much better, I'll put up with some glare and reflections.
The peeling seems to have been taken care of. I have an October 2011 build and no peeling issues, at all. I believe Samsung changed the way they did the filter on the glass, or something, to cure the problem. If it does peel, it is covered under warranty.
I use a dedicated surround system, but I did try the speakers out. They aren't terrrible compared to flat panel displays of years past. They would be adequate for regular TV vewing in a small room for someone who doesn't insist on "better" sound.
No idea on LED TV's compared to the 7000.
