No one argued with you (other than about uyour trolling the S30 thread) that the S30 panel was "just as good", only that it didn't yield that much better a picture for an extra $400-500. Not everyone buys their sets off the back of a virtual truck from a gray market, floor model reboxer/Amazon affililiate. The price difference from a legitimate retailer is the price most people are refering to, at least in my case. I know some guys who work the docks that could have gotten me the set for $500.
Off topic, but I have to ask. Why do you care so much that people bought the S30? I don't see you trolling the ST/GT/VT threads. You bought what you liked and I'm sure everyone is very happy for you. What point is there in telling others endlessly that the set THEY are happy with is junk? How is that helpful or informative? Why aren't you over in the big dog threads telling them how your bottom of the 3D line POS ST is just as good as their sets? I'm asking because at this point you have been at it for at least a month and it has gone from being amusing to just plain sad.
When I'm done with this set next year, it will go to a family that couldn't otherwise afford a decent set of any size. Frankly, I can buy almost any set on the market from part of what's left in my paycheck. But I don't go around lauding it over people and I don't try to make people feel bad about their purchase. I try to help them make the most of what they have. Maybe you should check your head gear and try to figure out YOUR true motivations for posting here; to help others and discuss, or to bring people down in order to lift yourself up?
Sorry everyone, but I had to get it off my chest. I'm done now and if the mods want to delete this, it's all good. I just figured someone had to say it at least once...
