Hey guys, I am in a bit of a dilemma with deciding on which set to purchase. There is a big price gap between these two sets from the deals that I can find out there and it's making it very difficult on which one to decide on. I've been reading up on this site and I have learned that the Kuro's are the all mighty and powerful, but they come with a hefty price tag. The new Samsung PN50A650 has a really nice picture for the price, yet still isn't as good as a Kuro... How much of a difference is there, though, between these two sets? Do they both display 24p? Does the Kuro display less noise than the Samsung? Is there that much of a difference with dithering? Is there any banding on either set? Especially when viewing the menu screens on a PS3 or Xbox 360. I had previously purchased a LN52A650 (returned it due to stutter and crappy 120hz) and never had any banding issues. Sorry for the rambling, but I could really use other peoples input who have either set. I think I've even seen some comments from users who had the PN50A650 set, but returned it for the Pioneer 5020. So hopefully I can find out why you guys swapped for the other. Thanks!
