Thanks guys! Yeah I will most likely never use the 3D features. But the fact that this thing came with the internet ready so I could stream stuff from netflix is also a BIG plus.

It's a good deal.It's going for $1,188 at Amazon which is usually the cheapest or real close.All of the top 3 mfgs , Samsung,Sony and LG have the same problem's clouding and flash lighting in the corner's.It's hit or miss on all of them some people get lucky the first time some other's have exchanged several time's to get a good one.I got a Samsung UN55C6500 and it has an awesome picture until it's dark out and your watching a dark movie and the flash light's are distracting you.I have a replacement coming tomorrow will see if it's better ,I can live with a little but this one had to much.

Go on over to avsforums.com and you will see what I mean.Someone probably has some nice setting for your tv there too.

Thanks man, I'll check that forum out. Question, do you know how I would go about playing a blu ray rip on my HDTV via USB flash drive? I tried converting a .avi file using WinX HD Video Converter to MP4 and MPEG, and neither worked. Is this even possible? Should I just get something like WD Live ?

Well this is for my bedroom. I think its perfect size for my room. I really wasn't looking for a 3D tv either, it was just a feature on it and for $750 I think its a great buy.
A TV for the bedroom doesn't need LED, 3D, etc...but to each his own. I would have picked up a cheap $499 40 inch and called it a night.

On topic: Buying a warranty from Fry's doesn't make sense 99% of the time. Most electronics products will fail within the first 1 year which is covered by the manufacturer. The probability of it failing from year 1-2 is so low, it isn't even worth $25 on a $750 purchase

That TV will not support video over USB. It is exclusively used for MP3's and JPEGs.

It does. I already played a 1080p video through USB.

I know it doesn't NEED 3D, LED, etc, but like I said in another post, I wasn't looking for these features, I was looking for something in the $500 - $700 price range and they had this one for $750 and it has all of the bells/whistles. Whilst others in the price range were lacking specs that I specifically wanted. 1 being USB ports. Plus I spend most of my time in my room anyways, my sister stays with me and shes in the living room most of the time
