Add to cart and proceed to checkout to see the price. Should be $680~. I bought this set brand new from sears right after christmas. Replaced a 32" Vizio. It's a night and day difference. The menu setup is much more robust(something you WILL appreciate as time goes by) and has plenty of inputs. Not to mention, it's just plain sexy
turn-table stand(love it)
non-glossy screen(0 glare)
Before buying this tv I would just get cheap budget brands like Vizio or Dynex. Not anymore. Don't punish yourself, spend a little more to roll with the big boys. Get a Samsung.
i got the 46 inch version if this same tv (LN46C630) at amazon for 850$ with no tax and free shipping. my sister still had the trial of amazon prime, so the tv got here in 2 days.
i am very pleased with the tv. i am also glad that i went with the 46inch version instead of the 40 inch i originally planned.
i looked at tv's at bestbuy, and this tv had the best picture to me... so i went and got it on amazon so that i dont have to pay tax or hassle with getting the thing home.
the tv picture settings need tweaking out of the box, but someone on this forum gave me a great calibration settings that i just put into the tv and now the picture looks great.
the only thing thats a bit problematic is the motion blur reduction and judder reduction. although these settings work fine on most shows, some shows on my hd cable dont look good with them... instead of removing judder, it makes it more apparent. i just ended up turning this feature off and its better this way. i turn it on only when i want to. turning it on gives the soap opera effect which i only like on a few shows. there are also some minor artifacts during some movies... but i dunno if its the tv or the hd cable... i think its the hd cable though.
overall i'd recommend this tv. i am very pleased with it. i give it 4.5 out of 5 stars. its great for its price.Edited by Buka The Earthworm - 5/23/11 at 9:47pm
