Did you get this TV? I saw yesterday and looks pretty sweet. If you get the upper series of this LED Tv it is like an apple tv and can access internet directly from it. Anyone have one of these? Is it worth the money?

I have the B6000 and love it. The picture is awesome, it has deep blacks, refresh rate is very good. Mine does not have all the fancy media stuff in it but I don't really think I would be using them anyways. I have a ps3 and a xbox that can play most media files. I don't regret buying the TV for a minute. The higher in the series have even better specs than the one I have, so I think you would be very pleased with it. After looking at TVs for 3-4 years I bought the samgsung LED tv and it has the best picture of any of them (in my opinion). Go for it

only annoying thing about my Samsung LED TV (LE40A796) is that it perfectly interfaces with the AppleTV via HDMI but I can't call "AppleTV" in the Samsung TV menu, the nearest I could get was "Media-Player". Other than that , 1080P is great.

Just got the BD-C6500 with built in wireless and was thrilled to start streaming my iTunes, photos and movies to the tv... but not really working as planned. The NetFLix and Pandora are great but can't seem to get my iTunes music to play. Some pics work and some (few) movies will play but not much. I've tried Playback, Medialink, PS3 Server, Twonky, TVMobili, Rivet... same results. Usually get Unsupported Format error even though most are non-apple purchased MP3s.

Do I really have to spend another $99 to get AppleTV just so my streaming will work... I would have bought a cheaper BluRay if I had known. Those who have ATV please tell me ALL your files stream regardless of format, who you bought from, etc.
