    Very nice screen you got there ^^^ :-), I got the D6000 and couldn't be more happier :-). I couldn't personally justify almost double an increase in price for a few extra 'smart' features, a few more inputs / outputs and local dimming.

    In progress.. triple rackmount HTPC setup. Just have to order some SSD's and fans. 3D Blu-ray + MadVR Rendering capable rigs. They will all pull content from my 12TB+ WHS and networked CableCARD tuners. The HDTV's in various rooms will just have an HDMI cable ran with a USB IR receiver where a Harmony remote will control each one. Total cost so far is ~$750.. picked up some good sales. ^_^







    Wire management still needs *slight* cleanup.. but it's about one of the cleanest installs I've done. ^_^

    I ordered some blue LED fans.. they should be here soon. Then I just have to sleeve and build the other two HTPC's. SSD's will come when I find a good sale on some 60GB/120GB drives. I will take pictures as I put everything together. Right now I'm pretty busy with work and finding a house that will fit my current home theater the way I want it. The idea is to find a big enough basement so I can put in a theater, wet bar, and a cigar room with air filtration.

    Fans installed. Three 60GB Corsair Force 3 6GB/s SSD's on order. Did a test boot of the system and it runs surprisingly quiet and hovers around 35C - 40C.
