I think the cnet review said mine fell in line behind I think the 8000\/8500s and of course Pioneers for PQ. You've seen Walter's. The gold standard as it were.\n\nI don't really see why there would be a run on Plasmas. S'up with the 4K revolution? Isn't that better or can't they get motion right on LCD?\n\nThis might sound a little crazy Alex, I just came back from my cousins house and he got the Samsung Curved 65" from Sam's Club for $1995.00. Out of courtesy I had to go down and check it out. After watching that thing for almost an hour and telling him how great it looks I had to walk away for a while, just can't take that picture, it's like playing a video game. I take my 10+ year old Pioneer Plasma over that Samsung anytime. BTW your system looks great. It's like seeing a little boy growing into a man. I really enjoy that Robert Cray CD "I was warned" you left for me. That's what's playing right now. Might have to get another one because this one is wearing out.
