Saw this set at Sears next to Toshiba 50"ws and 47"ws Panasonic today. The Panasonic was WAY red and I could not change that. The Samsung surprised me with a very good 16:9 image which was within a hair of the Toshiba. There was just a hint of red on the Samsung. Flesh tones were good. Also, with a 54" size, the 16:9 image comes out to about 49". Is there any reason to avoid the Samsung that I don't know about? Does it lock into "full" mode on progressive signals? I have a Panny RP91, so that may not matter.
