Hi, I am hoping to purchase the above mention TV over the next 6 weeks or so but have a number of questions to which i couldnt quite find the answers to in the forum (Sorry!). So any help would be appreciated. 1, Does anyone have an idea as to a solution for placing a center speaker above or below (preferably below) the screen? its a great looking TV but considering the market I would have guessed it is aimed at ie: Home Cinema etc it is a rather impractival one. 2, Life expectancy for the bulb...does anyone have a vague idea about this?...I spoke to a girl at Samsung who in turn spoke to an "engineer" who then came back with a figure of 60,000hrs. Now I find this rather hard to believe since I hear general figures for DLP's of about 8,000hrs and SevenOaks Sound and vision said around 4,000 which is completely cr@p. 3, is related to the question 2 and is: Does anyone know roughly how much a replacement bulb costs and is it replaceable by the user ie: Me or does it have to be fitted by an engineer? 4, I may be confused but is there an exact same version available without the plinth stand? 5, I cant seem to find much mention of the Rainbow effect...does the screen suffer from it much? and the "low level green blocking on deep blacks" as mentioned by various magazines, is it REALLY that noticable? I know haw picky review mags can be. 6th and final question is (thx for reading this far!): The sammy is based on the HD2+ chipset and I hear that there are some new Toshibas comming soon based on the HD4. Would it be worth waiting to see what these are like given the already excellent general opinion of the Sammy and to Samsung themselves have anything new due soon? Thank you in advance for any light you can shed on these questions...your help and insight is appreciated.
