This thread seems more appropriate.
I've had my LN-T4061F for close to a week now. I just wanted to write some initial thoughts..
Right out of the box, the picture was actually very good, but also very bright.
Thankfully, other owner's have posted their calibration settings in these forums, so I started with those settings, and tweaked just using my personal preference. This made the HD channels look amazing, and the SD also looked pretty good too.
The settings were from the first few posts of this page, but from a 4661F.
I am extremely happy with this LCD, as my prior television was a Samsung ED plasma, model SPN-4235 (not bad for three year old model I purchased new - you don't want to know what I paid for it).
I looked at about 4 LCD's - Sony XBR, two of the new Samsungs, and a Sharp. I was the most satisfied with this set, then the 4065F, but it did have noticeable glare where the 4061F does not.
I haven't noticed any clouding, banding, or pillaring that some have mentioned, so I'm either very lucky or these problems must be fairly rare.
I'm using HDMI-to-HDMI on a Cox Comm 8300 DVR box. I did have one "bad handshake" event, but it was during bad weather, so it could have been my cable going out as well, as it hasn't happened since.
