Mine will probably go back to Samsung. I had a chance to see some of their new B7000 series and considering their price, there just isn't a point for me to keep the 950 unfortunately.

Really? I saw them side by side at CES and the B7000 TVs seemed to be far out front in terms of contrast.

People take lag to mean different things. Can you explain which kind of "lag" you are talking about? It may sway me away from the B7000.

Alright, here's my setup:
Dynex DX-LCD42HD-09 - 42" LCD, 1080P. Cost me a whopping $100 . Got most paid as a gift, but in total it only cost $825 taxes in. Could barely notice any difference in picture compared to the 37" Bravia next to it in store.
Scientific Atlanta Explorer 1840 - Or more commonly known as the basic SD digital cable box from Rogers Nothing fancy here.
Logitech X-540 5.1 - Meh, no dedicated surround sound system here. They work pretty nice though for $50. Other two speakers are behind the TV due to space limitations.
Xbox 360 Pro - Connected through component, no HDMI available on this old one. 1080i looks amazing though. Sitting on its very handy travel case. Loves me the Rock Band as well, I need to learn how to drum for real though
My Computer - Hopefully I'm gonna go and search for an HDMI cable one of these days so that I can hook it up to my TV. 42 inches of game sounds sweet.
