Nice, but nice enough?

Excerpt: Imagine my surprise when the local electronics store came knocking on my door with a Samsung UN55B8000 55 in. HDTV TV. This was more for my husband than it was for me. I can think of a hundred ways to spend $2,500, but he assured me this was an investment (yeah, until the next greatest thing comes out). I do enjoy the * Samsung UN55B8000 55 in. HDTV TV. * It gives a great picture, especially when the local channels are in HD.
Summary: I just got this TV two days ago. As soon as I started watching I saw that the darks in the corners and along the sides were not nearly as dark as the darks in the center of the picture. It's as if there's a gremlin in each corner shining a flashlight towards the center. I called Samsung Customer Service and they told me this problem is caused when the styrofoam packaging is too tight during shipping, and that it should go away in 2-3 weeks.
