We're about to spend $1400 on a LED HDTV which may be as soon as Wednesday this week. The Samsung we are looking at is just as bright as any Plasma that my husband and I have seen and we really the picture that it puts out. Does anyone here own one? We've seen how the picture looks with blu-ray but we're a little unsure of how it will look with Direct TV. If you have any thoughts about LED please let me know too. Should we go with a Plasma TV instead? The LED is a little cheaper.
