too bad samsung never made the H7000, seems like it would have been perfect for guys like Dustinj
i think i'm with the majority here, that i actually APPRECIATE these filters, and think they are what make the f8500 pretty special. because of the filters, there's pretty much no scenario the f8500 doesn't look fantastic in. Bright room, dark room, doesn't matter. but deep down, i see this as what was wrong with the plasma market at the end. not enough ppl were buying, so not enough models were made, which meant fewer ppl could actually find that 'perfect' model. reminds me a bit of the last time i bought an lcd, and i had to keep returning the LED edgelit ones until i found a CCFL backlit model that was a total piece of garbage. they simply didn't make a 'high end' model that didn't have the worst backlighting ever imagined... if there was a way i could have bought a high end edgelit lcd, and then 'swapped' a CCFL backlight, i would have, haha.
