Bottom Line:   
Just an update. I used my Avia calibration DVD on this unit to see how it stacked up to the test patterns. I know there is only one adjustment to be made, which is briteness. With that being said with the brightness turned down all the way the color and hue came very close with a blue lense. Ok course blacks stayed a touch brighter then they should be. Sharpness was perfect, and the display had almost perfect reds and greens on the color decoder check. Althogh it was lacking in blue saturation. Blue and green is not as easy to notice as red push without test patterns. So I was very pleased with the results. The best thing to do is set down and open the screen until the colors look the best. I find that when the screen is slightly tilted back it looks the best. Now the cool thing! The speakers absolutely suck. But when using even cheap ear phones or powered speakers you get awesome two channel surround sound that will blow you away! You can hear real movement in the sound! Great toy!

Bottom Line:   
Great little unit if you don't intend to ever watch TV 4:3 aspect DVDs on it. After calling Samsung, they explained to me that I was the FIRST person to report that there's no way to change the anamorphic aspect ratio to anything other than widescreen.

Bottom Line:   
This is one awesome package! I love the large 10" wide screen. TV, Video games, and DVDs look wonderfull. To the guy that said 4:3 content looked out of perportion I guess he did not know that you can set the display to pan-and-scan. The display is very brite and has great color, but the black levels are not as deep as my Pioneer Elite Pro-520HD. But for $899 what can you expect. I am a soldier getting deployed to kick some Sadom Iraq ass! This product will make life alot easier! After I come back I will install this in my 2000 Explore's rear roof so back seat pasangerscan be entertained. The display switches upside down with one quick push of a button so roof mounting can be accomplished.

Bottom Line:   
Tried this from Best Buy for a month, and returned it because it
cannot display anything except Anamorphic wide screen material in
proper aspect ratio - any 4:3 TV material or letterboxed but non-
anamorphic DVDs display stretched to fill screen. So older movies
look short/wide, whil letterboxed look tall/thin.

Bottom Line:   
Nice looking product but for the price it is lacking progressive scan. The unit is also HEAVY. The extra long battery is nowhere to be find so you are limited to 2.5 hours. Bottom line should have purchased a Toshiba or Panasonic or for the size/weight, used my laptop.
