you will want a 60hz model. there could be issues with 120/240hz models so beware.
you want hdcp compliancy if you want to use it with a ps3.
personally i prefer sony products.
if you want the best then you might want to look for one of the high end models which isnt edge-lit by leds instead it has them arranged in a grid behind the screen. the contrast is better this way.
Thanks for your input ssddx, I am looking for best performance over all, my only restriction is that it seems as though all the high end models are over 40", and i really cant get anything bigger than 40" because my room is so small.
Also wouldnt a 120/240hz model be better than a 60hz model? What is the issue with 120/240hz? From what i've read on the specs, it says the TV is 400hz, but thats the first time ive seen a number like that so im skeptical, especially since it does not say the hz ANYWHERE on the official samsung spec sheet. It does however say that the CMR is 400, which im assuming is where they got the 400hz from.
