Yes, it looked the best to me, along with Panasonic Vierra. But i am worried about these dark areas that people talk about when i play games like Oblivion on my XBox 360. Since that game has lots of dark areas that you still have to be able to see in. And i have cable tv that just has the cable that comes through the outlet in the wall and screws into the tv. Will my channels that have hd tv like ESPN and Animal Planet be in hd? Or do i have to get some special kind of hookup? I would be disapointed if cable tv looks the same as it did on my old Sony Trinitron tube tv.
hey i'm in the same boat as you...i thought i wanted plasma for a while and i was set on getting the panasonic 500U now 600U but when i saw the Samsung 4692D with the beautiful piano black finish and really cool styling with awesome PQ, i had second thoughts...the panasonic now just looks so bland/boring with it's silver/gray color...i think panasonic should get with the program and have an all black plasma...they will be losing business based on the style factor alone since PQ is pretty much on par now.
and i'm somewhat of a gamer (not hardcore but I could play 2-4 hours straight) so i'm kinda scared of the potential burn in on plasma sets...i don't really want to have to worry about it or switch channels cuz a graphics been on too long...what a pain...as i compare the panasonic plasma and the samsung LCDs, i really don't see much difference...in fact i think that the LCD gives a brighter picture that pops to me...decisisions, decisisions...now i'm just waiting to see what the 96 series Samsungs are gonna be like...i might hold out for that...the design is a little different (glass on the bottom which I like) and it's full HD 1080p.
anyway, post back when you get it and have a chance t play games on it. i also only have regular cable that comes from the wall! i hope the shows that are shown on HD will be in HD on the samsung w/just regular cable! let me know if that's the case as well.
