There aren't many model 81's out there yet. No way to positively compare the two.
BEWARE: I just found out that the Samsungs are developing both horizontal and vertical LINES in the screen. Some of the lines are 1 or 2 pixels wide and others are up to 1/4 inch wide! Sears tells me that they (Samsung) WILL NOT WARRANTY the set if the lines don't amount to 10% of the entire screen area! UNBELIEVABLE! Sears has a defective set on display in Dallas and Samsung was asked to repair it WEEKS ago and they still haven't done so.
Samsung has a TERRIFIC picture quality but I stopped considering them after hearing about the line problems. Google the problem to learn more.
can anybody tell me the difference between the dynamic contrast ratio of 500,000:1 compare to 25,000:1 ???
i am looking into purchasing a 52" LCD flat and i am just loving the samsung LN-T5271, but when i looked at the samsung homepage and found out that the LN-T5281F has a much much much...higher dynamic contrast ratio then the LN-T5271, i was shocked. also about the price difference...4k!!! is it worth it???
how big can the picture quality realy be? haven't seen the 81 in the store yet, seems like most places don't carry that model at all.
thanks for the help and...one more thing any tips about when to buy my nice shiny flat screen? right after CES? before? in the next 3 month????
thanks again and a happy new year
