This will be my first post, even though I have been vigorously searching receivers, TVs, and other electronics of interest on this site. I ended up purchasing this TV at ABT. Their price was listed at $2849.00. The salesman I was working with took 4% off bringing the price down to $2735.04. He also gave us two free pairs of 3D glasses ($100 instant rebate) with $60 off a TV stand ($10 discount + $50 instant rebate). Today I came across Buydig's website and saw the TV priced at $2639.00 with a free Flat and Tilt Mount. I decided to chat with one of ABT's online representative. He said that the site was not an authorized dealer, but he would offer me the discounted rate as a one time offer. On another note, initial reaction was good. I have the TV setup with wireless N and Netflix loads up pretty quickly. The picture quality of my HTPC was beautiful, but I believe the Nvidia control panel settings helped with that. Unfortunately cable looked dark, and I had issues with ARC using Netflix. I read that HDMI 1 should be used, so I'll try that after work. Also I'll try the calibration recommendations posted in this thread. Thanks for all of the information!
