Hi filbert. I'm waiting impatiently on these new screens, looking for a 50. the 5080 with built in speaker and cut down features is the one i'm looking at. have you seen what difference this optimum mode and this other advanced mode does on the elite models ? thanks in advance.

No, not had the opportunity to see them side by side to say what if any difference these features make.

I can't believe how cheap these are over the pond. :mad: I'm beginning to think about wall mounting one now, but if i get the 508 in stead of the 5080, i'll need a speaker and wall mount, which puts it at about 3k. too expensive i'm afraid. I don't know what to do ! :rolleyes:
