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.

Yup saw it at Digi-Expo next to the LED backlit 52inch Samsung, and the Kuro was way better in terms of black level. But those go for around 3000€+ here :/. Well, back to my 100hz LG 37' ...

Sony has improved PS3 Bluray playback and features with various firmware updates since it's release, it looks great my only minor complaint would be disc access speed during the initial movie load.

Use your brain. I am looking at this thread with a 24" 16:10 monitor at 1920x1200 resolution. The pics are about 5 INCHES diagonal. Would they look as good 100 INCHES diagonal? If you are using a 5" screen, just stick with DVD bro.

To judge a player you need to watch in actual motion, full size. Not pics on the ****ing Internet with your 19" LCD.
