Ended up going with the Samsung 51 inch plasma smart tv and this thing is awesome.
There was hardly any difficult set up required. The only thing i struggled with was putting the stand together and setting it up on my entertainment center because I had no one to help me.
After getting it up on the entertainment center, flipped it on, and went to adjust my settings. No problem at all. Everything was relatively easy. It had all kinds of apps already installed, including MLB.tv and netflix--the only two i really care about.
The only things i've had problems with thus far are that it has asked me for my wifi password a few times after each time i turned the tv on. Although it didn't today, so hopefully the password has "stuck". Also, I'm concerned about the glare--the stand that comes with the tv does swivel, and after giving it a test run today with all the blinds open, it's not THAT bad. There is still a a little bit of a glare though. One cool thing this tv does is automatically detect the amount of light in the room so it will adjust accordingly.
All in all, I'm happy about my purchase. This thing is awesome.
Very nice!! Anytime you have windows behind you there's going to be a glare issue. I'm don't remember which it is but I think the LCD's handle glare better than plasmas but you'll find the colors are much better & more true w/ a plasma
After a few weeks I didn't even notice the glare anymore. The tv autoadjusts to its surroundings as well, so that's a big help. While there is a slight glare, it's not enough to annoy me (and I get annoyed easily).
All in all, no regrets at all. The price was right for a big screen, so I almost HAD to buy it. 'Merica.
