    Great picture with plasma like contrast. Hard to evaluate local dimming LED so not sure if it worth the extra $500 or so. [...]

      Comments about Samsung 46" Black LED Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

      This TV has a great picture with deep blacks, solid color and zero motion artifacts. It replaced a Sony Super Fine Pitch XBR 960 and in my opinion the picture on the Samsung is superior and the TV is 150 lbs. less than the Sony CRT. I am not sure how much better the picture is with the local LED dimming of the 8500 series than the 8000 series because I don't have the two sets side by side. If you want top of the line picture, this set is it.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was prompt and as promised. TV was boxed in original carton and box was in perfect condition. Used ABT online chat customer service and they price matched Amazon within 30 days of my purchase. Kudos to ABT for a great purchasing experience.
