Unless you really want the integrated HD tuner or cable card, i'd choose the 5663. You can always purchase a separate ATSC tuner or cable box and there are definitely some limitations if you decide to use the Cable Card. The Sony looks good but i still prefer DLP to LCD -the image is smoother and black levels are better on the Samsung. I work for a retailer and we just launched some year end specials which includes the Samsung 5663W. PM if you are interested and I'll make sure you get the pricing details.
