    I have the 506XDE. No regrets as yet. That may all change though when I start playing games on it more often. I'm still running it in at the moment.

    I was a bit surpised by the black levels (dark grey) when I first got it, but now I've played with the settings, I've got a much better greyscale, and it's great, so no regrets.

    Absolutely no regrets here either. Only wish my walls were strong enough to wall mount.

    Yes I regret buying the 436XDE, I should have bought the 506XDE. At first moving up from a 32" to the 43" was good enough, now I want more....................

    I agree with Peter, should have bought the 506XDE, even the mother in law wants a 506 after seeing my 436. Apart from that not a single regret, it is a top quality piece of electronics.

    Yes, should have bought the 43 Inch version. I think the 42 inch versions are Eastern European knock offs :D
