Just set up the LG47CM565 from Brick and It is so cool. The 3D is actually better then I expected it would be. Pretty good deal for $598.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the Samsung UN55ES7050? I purchased a lg 9600 but the panel has terrible backlight issues (tried 3 different tvs all with same problem...) so I ordered the Samsung to see if it is any better.

Could you please let me know how this TV's backlighting is because I bought the 60LM7200 LG model, and the top left corner is kind of leaking. I tried losing the screws and it seemed to help a bit. And I also tried googling and it seems all LED & LCD edge lit experience this issue.

I won't have the Samsung TV until Jan 5th (ordered it in store but they had none in stock) so I won't be able to comment about it until then. You are correct that most LED/LCD TV's suffer from some bleeding but what i was getting on these 9600's was a bit extreme(poor quality picture but it gives you the idea...):

Manage to score this TV for 400$ due to the boxes being mislabelled at futureshop.

Anyone have any idea on the quality of this tv? honestly I thought I was getting an amazing deal but the TV has a lot of glare and the sound on this set is awful...
Im wondering if I can get a better TV for 400$
You got a good deal. Sound on all tvs now adays is crap. Glare is a common issues in lower tier tvs

P.S. TCP50U50 is now on for $650 with free shipping from Dell.ca.
UT50 is worth the extra $50.

A fantastic deal from my searching. I've been after one of these for 4+ months now, and have been wanting to see it at the $2k mark (or less). Cheapest I've seen it is around $2300. Where have you found it?

Nvm found one. What mounts are you guys using for your fifty inch tvs?
Costco AVF Low Profile/multi-position mount for $140 seems to be a great value. I have one and it works great on my 50" in the living room - much better than my friend's $300+ mount from best buy. This mount holds between 30"-80".

This may be a stupid question but, if you mount the TV flush to the wall, if you need to add any additional cables... how complicated would it be to do so?

Anyone know if I should return the 40" Samsung LED UN40EH5000 purchased for $489.99 + taxes including 2 year warranty from Costco for the Samsung UN40EH5300FXZC (Smart TV 40") at Future Shop for $549.99 + taxes in store?

I know I paid $581.94 at Costco including taxes + $25 environment fee. If I buy this from FS, it will be $649.74 including taxes + $25 environment fee. That's a difference of $67.80. Basically that difference will get me a Smart TV, more USB and HDMI ports. Only thing I will sacrifice is the 2 year warranty and 90 day return policy from Costco. Well technically I could get the 1 year warranty doubled from RBC via the RBC VISA....

Hmmm... Thoughts?

Think you can get decent mounts for under 75. Seen a lot of boxing day sales for them

This partiuclar Costco mount actually allows the TV to move in and out from the wall, so cabling on it was much easier than with my true 'flush mounted' 60" in the basement. The mount in my basement is this one (http://www.thesource.ca/estore/product. ... ct=1601902) on for $50 from the source. Generally even with the flush mounts there is a way that you can 'tilt' the TV just enough to get behind to do some cabling - but of course if you have two people you can always take it down off the wall pretty easily to do what you need to do behind it.

Cheers.

Went to futureshop and noticed that a few TVs were lower today in store than boxing day. The associate told me that they just found out last night.
One example is the Samsumg 51E530 plasma, it's now 549.99 50$ Lower than boxing day.
