Coming from F5300 Plasma, what's comparable?
In short, my F5300's speakers are blown out and it's still in warranty, but Samsung can't find a technician in the area, so they've offered a refund or exchange. I'm considering it. They will be contacting me in the next few days with a list of exchange options and if I don't like them, I can opt for a refund or just keep it, since I use the stereo for audio anyway. But sometimes when changing inputs, resolutions, or audio tracks on a Blu-ray, I get some pops and crackles out of the TV speakers, even though no audio is being sent to them, which I find weird.
So my question is, opting for the refund, what is out there that is close to comparable to the F5300's picture quality at around $1,000?
