Pros 5000:1 contrast ratio, picture quality, price
Cons Stand does not swivel
Summary I was looking for the best flat panel LCD tv I could findfor around $500-600 , and having previously seen Samsung LCD HDTV's I looked on their site first. I was attracted to this model due to it's high contrast ratio, and its 3 HDMI port. The size would also be nice for my room, not too big, not too small. It's nice having an AV and HDMI port on the side of the TV which other lower Samsung models do not have(some also don't even have HDMI ports). This model shares features with higher priced models which is also a plus. Overall it is a very nice TV for the price(personally I think it is the best out there in this price range and featureset). Highly recommended!
Pros Awesome picture, deep blacks, beautiful cabinet
Cons What did they just say? Huh? I can't hear that? Maybe I'm going deaf and just don't know it...but the volume at the maximum setting still sucks on this television!!!
Summary "I purchased this television a couple of days ago and truly love it. At the moment I have it hooked up a DVR box through my local cable provider. I used a HDMI cable to connect the 2 sources and ran into a bit of a snag...I was getting no sound! After running a few tests I realized it was a problem with the cable box and not my TV. (I hooked my Blu Ray up through HDMI and got sound and I also hooked up my other DVR cable box through HDMI and got sound) The HD channels look amazing and the standard def channels are OK. I wish I could have given this TV a rating of 5 stars but the sound sucks on this thing. Don't get me wrong, its not full of static or bad sounding...the volume just does reach any level of loudness. If someone is vacuuming in the other room and you turn the volume to max...you still won't hear over the vacuum! But other then that I have always been impressed with Samsung's LCD televisions and since picture quality means the most to me, I believe this TV is excellent."
Pros Was great while it lasted....about 1 1/2 yrs.
Cons There were none until it wouldn't turn on.
Summary Did a lot of research before buying an LCD tv....Samsung had great reviews. I didn't run across any problems. Now I'm finding out that the problem we are having is common with Samsung. Glad we have the extended warranty.

Pros Best picture I've seen...period. Light wieght, tons of input options.
Cons Cost...about $500bucks!!
Summary If you're looking for a tv that is compact, but still displays a georgeous wide-screen image in SD or HD; this is your tv! (providing you don't mind paying for quality, as always)
Pros Very good picture quality, Very user friendly, looks great.
Cons Mine broke after 8 months of minimal usage. It will not turn on anymore. Look around the internet and you will find it is VERY common for Samsung TVs to do so ...
Summary I never used the TV heavily, probably less than 200 hours of viewing and no more than 2 hours at the time. One evening, I was watching and it turned off. I tired to turn it on and it would not. The LED was blinking every three seconds or so. Unplugged it, tried to turn it on again ...never got it to turn on again ...and the power led kept blinking ...the next day, I got back from work and the TV was on ! It seemed to work perfectly. Called tech service, told me to ship it and now I am waiting to see what the problem is. One thing for sure, I don't know if I will buy Samsung again ...
