Default Re: I bought the Samsung HLT6187S 61" Slim LED Engine 1080p DLP HDTV

I have been reading about a "prism effect" manfacturing-related problem with this model, an artifact seen in dark areas on high contrast scenes with this set - apparently not all sets are affected (though a seemingly large percentage are based on AVSFORUM posts), but if your set is affected it requires an expensive light engine swap-out repair (if not under warranty). Did you have this issue? It is apparently easiest seen in the 300 senate scene and looks like a prism/triangle of bluish/purple color.

I only know because I was/am interested in this set as well. One thing I'd like to know - try running it some 1080p/24 material and I'd like to know if the judder seen in 1080p60 is gone, as this is a 120hz set.
We're all in it together.
