You & my wife are of the same opinion. We actually had a much better set than this EH6000 model, previously to our TC-P50U54, we owned last years premium, UN55D7000. And I would whole-heartedly endorse the U54 over the D7000 & this year's lower budget model EH6000. The overall build quality, imo, on the U50 is superior to both sets & offers much better black levels & overall PQ.
Samsung's QC dept leaves something to be desired too. I hope you don't have any issues in the long term & would encourage you to pick up the ext warranty, if you haven't already done so.
Check out CNET's table(below) from Dave Katz's mid-year report card, and even though the U50 isn't on it, its sibling 3d cousin UT50 is and apart from 3d & the 2500 ffd, it uses the same generation G15 progressive pdp. And it is near the top of the list, whereas the EH6000 is lodged in the lower-middle of the heap.
Here is CNET's review of the UN46EH6000: http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-tvs/samsung-un46eh6000/4505-6482_7-35159621.html?tag=results;prodInfo
Overall @ the end of the day it's what you like most & I hope you have many enjoyable hours watching your new set. Btw, Fry's Electronics offered your set yesterday @ <500, which is a sick deal for a 46" LED. It was 1/2 off their already low price.Edited by leftyguitar1963 - 7/1/12 at 12:51am
