Congrats! I'm very fond of my 5687, as well. I have a mild case of 88 envy.




Thanks! I don't think there are very big differences between the 88 and the 87. I cancelled my 87 order because I realized I had ordered from a non-reputable company online. I then ordered from Vanns and the 88 came with a free Harmony remote for 2999.

The main thing I like about the 5688 is that it is all black and doesn't have the silver bezel in front. There's a few extra features it has but I really don't think they matter much.

I'm just thrilled with my setup, and I forgot that I had ordered VaSallo M-60s in Cherry/chestnut/semi-gloss about 4 weeks ago... and yesterday I got the E-mail saying they have shipped!!!!!!! I can't wait!

I'll post up picks of them when they arrive.

Pics are Mandatory!

I was concerned that the silver strip on the front bezel of the 87s would be distracting, but it is a very dull silver color and I never notice it at all.

My last set had PIP, and though I only used it a few times (to watch two sporting events at the same time), it was nice to have it when I wanted it. I'll miss that feature during football season. However, if I understand things correctly, PIP won't work with HD signals.

I don't mind not having cablecard, a QAM tuner, or firewire, and that only leaves 1:1 pixel mapping.

Overscan can be turned off, on both the 87s and 88s, by accessing the service menu (not recommended unless you KNOW what you're doing - it allegedly voids the warranty unless done by a qualified technician), which allows 1:1 pixel mapping, but, for some reason, when the 87s are powered off, the overscan setting defaults to "on". It remains "off" on the 88s. While many report they can't tell the difference, I would like to see if I can.

The above features are the only differences between the two series of which I'm aware.
