So far I love this display and HD programming and BR look awesome....no regrets so far!!!
My room is fairly light controlled. I set the lights to just above the brightness the room is at night, when I'm usually watching tv. This way, there is slight comprimise if I watch it during the day.
I agree, SD is simply ok, but HD programming on this tv, especially anything broadcast in actual 1080i, looks amazing. It is much crisper than the Sammy 4665. I haven't tried blu-ray because I haven't been able to bring myself to buy a ps3. I have a 360 and between guitar hero and ghost recon 2, i dont have time to play another system.
IS the Direct tv signal any good? I have comcast, and it looks great, but I have no comparison.
