The F8000 Samsung gets some very high praise for it's picture quality. Basically for me the major benefits are 10-inch of additional screen size and no fan noise issue to worry about. On the negative side, I'd be sacrificing some picture quality, though I don't know how much, since I've never seen the F8000 in person. I've always bought plasmas and never really considered LCD sets seriously. For sure I would lose out on the viewing angle, but then again, its just me and my girlfriend who watch the set and we sit dead center in front of our ZT60 (well, I sit dead center and she sits just to the right of me in our home theater chairs). My biggest concern would be the motion flow, especially when watching fast moving sports like hockey or watching an action movie. I know almost all LCD's now how some sort of setting to help with this issue, but the trade-off is often the dreaded soap opera effect. The projector option really has me intrigued, but as I said, my room is not a dedicated theater room that is light controlled and even the projectors have their plusses and minuses.
