Samsung HL-S5087W?
Anyone try these out? My TV is acting weird (turns off by itself randomly) and well I wanted to move up in quality/size, is this model good? Im currently using a 47" Westinghouse. I mainly use it for my PS3 and Wii but once I move I plan to have all my consoles on it (X360 and PS2 aswell). SD TV isn't that important to me...

HL-S5088W is said to have PIP but is the IQ any different? Im basically looking for a TV around the 42"+ for no more then $2K, I got my funds tied somewhere else at this time.

Ha! Crazy! My dad just bought this TV this morning from Circuit City. :) It should be delivered on Wednesday. The reviews on it are all stellar and he said he was absolutely blown away by it in the store.

I'll let you know what I think of it when I go home later in the week to check out it, but from reading the reviews, I'd say it's a good purchase.

Plus, there are some coupons online for Circuit City that give 10% off TVs over $500 (or $1500), so you can save even more by getting it through them.

Plus, they have free delivery. :)

You don't have a PS3 right? Blah! Would like to know how it looks on it... got an X360? :o

I loved my Westinghouse but its not under warrenty so when/if it goes dead im TVless.

My dad has no gaming consoles, nor does he have an HD player of either flavor. I don't live with my parents. :)

I'll bring my A2 over next weekend maybe and hook it up to check it out.

My dad's set was pretty awesome. He hadn't messed with any of the calibration settings and the little bit I did, I was able to get the picture looking really nice (at least I thought so).

Discovery HD Theater was breathtaking (we watched Sunrise Earth for a bit and kind of got entranced. :))

I can't wait to go home for a night or two and bring home the A2 to see HD DVD on that set. Buy it Mag...it's a great purchase. :D

Re: Samsung HL-S5087W?
I have been looking at this line myself, but I am going to try and get the 60 or 56. So far the only negatives about this set I have found is that Samsung support blows, so if something happens to go wrong, you are screwed, so make sure you get a store warranty that will cover repairs on the bulb or color wheel.
