And for comparison, here's the same wall with my 32" Westinghouse LCD

Very very nice. Wish I could afford one. Right now I don't have a TV.

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.

I don't have anything that can output 1080p24 unless the 360 does. I've got my 360 and an A2 for HD content.

And yes, I think my set has the prism effect. I noticed a purplish/bluish spot in the middle of the screen while watching The Scorpion King last night.

But since I just bought it, I should be okay with the replacement, right? It shouldn't cost anything? I'll look for more info about it over at AVS I guess...otherwise, if it is going to be expensive, or if they won't come out and do it in person, I can just deal with it. It was a small annoyance and I could only really see it in a few really dark scenes.

Would the Performance Plan or whatever they call it at Best Buy also cover this? And if so, how much does the light engine replacement cost? Because if it's more than $350, I'll just go back and buy the Performance Plan since that's how much it was going to cost.

It look so tiny!

I'm moving later this year, I don't think my little 42"er will cut it in the new place, might have to checkout these new DLPs.

LOL You had to put in the darkest, crappiest HD-DVD in to take screen pictures, didn't you? That concert is so damn dark it's a waste of HD-DVD PQ.
It makes the bright parts seem that much brighter and the colors that much richer...

You need to use hdmi or component to get 1080p, and even then, some tv's do not accept 1080p through component.

Well, I've got HDMI with the A2 and I can switch the 360 from VGA to component, but again: I don't think the 360 outputs 1080p24. I could be wrong though.
