Re: What is the best 52 inch or larger LCD?
As far as I've heard though Sammies have had their own problems and I wouldn't recommend them. All of their top models for the past year have experienced a very noticeable 24Hz flicker which is very well reported on AVForums as well as other issues regarding uniformity and backlight bleed etc. I don't know what the reviews have said as I haven't gone looking.
The Sony screens have had their own problems regarding uniformity but have been easy to return and change and have even been fixed with FW updates vi USB, which I have not heard is the case for the Sammies.
If thats true what you say about light conditions isn't he better off with a projection system like the SXRD? I don't know a lot about them but have heard they are mostly superior in every way as long as the conditions are right. Goes with the money is no obstacle thing as well.
