I originally went shopping for a 32" LCD (LA32C530), then I came across this forum and Im glad I did. It took me 4 months, but I ended up buying the new Samsung PS43D490 - what a TV!!!! The size is clearly what I needed (not 32...) and so far the picture is awesome. I have not hooked up the DSTV yet, I have only played some movies off the HDD. I need to find a HD movie to test, but the .avi and .mkv files have been great. Smooth motion and good blacks.
Anyone have a sample HD trailer or something I can use to test?
