Finally the sales rep called a manager who then confirmed what I saw online and sold it to me at that price

The TV is currently #1 on CNET's top HDTV's list here and according to AVS forums it was rated #1 in a recent home theater mag HDTV roundup - Link

It has an amazing picture mainly due to the fact it has CRT quality black levels (even in a dark room) which plays a huge role in overall picture quality.
I saw that. I almost bought the 42" version of that samsung that got 2nd place but they had it next to the 50" PX75U model that's 780p and stepping back to the distance we'd be watching it from, the 50 was much more appealing.. I guess mainly due to it's size but I could'nt tell any lesser of picture quality.

Have you done any bias lighting on yours? Or anyone else here for that matter?

I'm thinking about hitting up home depot today for some rope lighting.
