    They look awesome but I can't find anywhere to get them. The Samsung sites only lists dealers like Best Buy and Sears which i seriously doubt will cary them. Also, if anyone has one, what are your thoughts?

    Thanks a lot. How do I get in on it? Any idea on the price?
    When are the sets available? I noticed that they are buying the hlm507W, what's the difference between that set and the 5065W? Any idea on the end date of the power buy?
    Sorry for so many questions. Thanks again.

    The 5065W is a different version carried only by Best Buy. The chassis is slightly different (re-uses the leftovers from the DOA LCDs) and it doesn't have 3:2 pulldown.

    How important is 3:2 pulldown? Anyone know where I can get the hlm507w?

    Go to the AVS Forum and you should get all the answers you
    need. Nothing against this forum, but the DLP is talked
    about a lot there.

    The Samsung 507 DLP currently edges out my choices of Sony Grand Wega v.2 coming in October (with a DVI and "25 percent more blackness") and the 50-inch Pan plasma.

    But Samsung has been making some in-production changes perhaps even from the vocifereous user groans in several avsforum RPTV Board threads the past 2 months. It's said Samsung has put a hold on dealer shipments.

    Those avs guys are service manual-type tweakers and early adopters extraordinaire. I'm gonna wait for their postings after the "revised" Samsung 507 starts delivering again in October.

    IF you get in on the PB the 50" is only $3199.00, but I would really hold off on this tv for awhile, way too many problems, on avs a guy in toronto has seen the 50" GW and has posted pics, and that tv may be better
