I couldn't recomend a worse set than the samsung 5679.
The processing in it looked like absolute crap. You will see color banding all over the damn place.
I saw it on standard def, high def, as well as DVDshttp://home.cfl.rr.com/funkyelf/TV/colorBanding1.html
If you look at the forum on it they say a solution to the color banding is to put it on movie mode which washes out the picture and makes everything you watch look like a western. I was reminded of O Brother where art thou whenever I put it in movie mode, and to tell you the truth, it didn't really fix it completely.
