For being my first HDTV, I am more than happy with my purchase. I was debating for months to get the LN40B630, but the price didn't come back down to below $800. Searching Amazon, I saw this year's model for less than last year's model, so I decided it was time to get one. I'm more than impressed by what this TV can do: already I have hooked my PS3 and DVD player up to it. The visuals are absoulutley outstanding -- I feel like I'm actually there. Reading reviews from last year's model, I saw negative comments about sound quality; this year's model, in my opinion, exceeds expectations.
