Pros: great picture, impressive colors wonderful TV
Cons: None at this time
Summary: I spent a long time reading reviews and waffling between the different formats: DLP, Plasma, LCD. LCD's had some issues with clouding, but then I read a review that the Samsung 4661 with True Black had solved that problem. I went to Best Buy, and the TV's were on sale for $2849. I asked the salesman if that was the best price and he told me that because the 4661 was a new model, they had wiggle room and sold it to me for $2449. I mentioned I had to upgrade my Comcast to Digital when I got home. He told me if I did it at the store, I'd get an additional $100 off. So, for $3048 I got the 46" TV, a 4 year warranty and a glass and chrome TV stand.
The 4661 is glossy Piano black. I turned the backlight down to 4 instead of 10, and the picture is still plenty bright. There is no evidense at all of pixelation. I am thoroughly impressed with the picture, and the sound is very good also. I like the swivel base. The remote is easy to use. I ordered a HDTV Calibration Wizard from the Imaging Science Foundation for $30. When that comes I'll calibrate the picture. Right now I had turned down the brightness to 6 and the contrast to 7. I use Normal picture setting. That may change with the calibation DVD. This is my first foray into HDTV and I couldn't be happier. Samsung has made an excellent product, at a very reasonable price.
