Glad you like your D630. Hummm.. For those reporting light leakage I wonder what panel they had the problem with, SN, SQ, or both? Anybody..?
Looks like I'll have my own review to post. UPS just dropped off a 46D630 (SQ01 panel) ordered two days ago from Amazon. Glad I pulled the trigger when I did. It went up $93 the next day. Good thing about this time of year is UPS has a couple of guys in the truck, and with a walk in basement they have to come up a flight to drop off.
I'm replacing a 5 1/2 year old Sony DLP with a bad optical block. That set only had one HDMI. After reading posts here and elsewhere, I'm updating with some Monoprice high speed HDMI cables. Going to pick up a Panasonic DMP-BDT215 (aka. DMP-BDT210) blu-ray player from Costco on the way to work tonight.
Tried to talk the Wife into a simple soundbar system. We have a 17 month old girl so I thought a soundbar would be enough, but she said not to spend any more money (mother-in-law is really paying for this) and I could set up one of my speaker systems I had before we got married. So, time to set up the Paradigm Titans...etc. and either a Sony (great sound fields) or Onkyo (beast) AVR, which is overkill since I won't be able to crank it.
Won't set it up today, working tonight and the Wife won't get home early enough to move it around. Crossing fingers that the Sammy won't have any pixel, leakage, or other issues, otherwise I'll exchange it for another. Assuming all is good I just need to figure a SquareTrade or other warranty. Anyone know if Samsung offers any decent extended warranty plans?
