For those coming from a plasma, could you describe the colors, a huge concern is Brightness, the blacks etc? I know viewing angles will be worse, and I'm guessing blacks, but the blacks aren't great on the plasma anymore either.
I recently came from a Samsung PN8000 Plasma and am happy.
Blacks are more inky black
- love this
- When using calibrated and calibrated dark for my living room, normal scenes are about the same for brightness, BUT it does seem brighter b/c the colors are more vibrant. But, in dark scenes, I can tell a difference. I have since moved to using the "Standard" setting with "Normal" color temperature and have tweaked to my own liking. This has drastically increased screen definition and brightness.
- I have the M70-E3 and its a pretty big tv. With this big of a tv mounting above the fireplace, the viewing angle isn't bad at all for my living room. Yes, it's not as good as plasma, but from every seat in the house its hardly noticeable.
Overall, the TV is a great upgrade. I am using Hulu Live TV (recently placed Comcast), and I do see lag sometimes, but I don't see it while streaming youtube, netflix, hulu on-demand or anything else. So I'm guessing it is related to the "live tv" platform as it's still in beta.
Love the TV so far!
