Hello! Long time member, first time poster!
Saw the previous posts about BB having these in stock even though the website says "coming soon" so I took a chance and picked up the ONLY M501D they had in stock. They DID have a floor model, so although I was fully prepared to pick it up sight unseen, I was able to get a quick look at it.
Got it hooked up during lunch and love what I'm seeing so far! I'm no videophile, but can say that the setup was the least amount of work I've had to do on a TV after taking it out of the box. I'm sure over the weekend, I'll do some tweaking, but for the most part, the initial setup was quick and painless.
The only problem I'm having is with my receiver (VSX-919AH-K) not having a true pass-through for the 3D signal from my PS3... but that I can work around.
Attached is a pic of my setup with some WRECK 'EM TEXAS TECH! football that happened to be on FSSW.

Note that I will be mounting this on the wall, but first have to take down the Samsung UN50EH6000 I bought a month ago... our old Olevia 747i died a month too early!
EDIT: now see that the pic is FAR worse than what it looked like on the phone, naturally... will try and upload some better pics later tonight.Edited by mkenglish - 5/24/13 at 12:28pm
