Hia guys

Just bought an LG 42LM669T and I've experienced a few problems with it. I'm wondering whether to return it and buy a Samsung UE40ES8055 instead. Could anyone tell me if I'll get a better TV for my extra cash? Here are my issues with the LG:
- When watching football I get a few seconds of frame dropping when the action switches between slow motion and regular speed.
- There's quite a lot of banding when the camera sweeps across the pitch.
- The contrast and black levels are so extreme that details seem to disappear in dark scenes, and whites burn out in bright ones (tried a lot of adjusting here).
- The viewing angles are very poor. The TV basically only works when sat right in front of it. If I move out to the side it goes pretty dark.

Would really appreciate it if any of you recon I'll get a better deal by upgrading to the Samsung UE40ES8055 (which is about $500 more expensive).
