This tv is by far the best picture I have ever seen in the dark. Unfortunately I like to have people over for the big games, fights, etc. and I need my lights on so we don't trip over each other. This is my fault for not researching more but the curve in the tv picks up any light in front of the tv and I have the worst reflection. There is a inch line in the middle of my tv all the way accross. My choices now are pay restocking fee or live with the line. Again this is by far the best picture I have ever owned in the dark and I have owned or own 9 flat screens, plasma, DLP, etc in the last 7 years. If you have a darker room definitely buy it's worth every penny.
