Pros Had this tv for one year. Great picture on this top rated tv, BUT... PLEASE BE AWARE of the cons before buying any red bezel (frame) model Samsung tv!!!
Cons The bezel (frame) comes loose!! It is only attached with 2 sided tape, no screws or clips, just tape. How long is that supposed to last? The heat from the tv probably loosend the tape glue over time.
Summary We noticed the bezel seperating about a month ago on one side, now the whole top of the frame is separating from the tv. The Samsumg "technician" is supposed to come and fix it under extended warranty, but it will just be taped together again. All Samsung tv's with this type of bezel have the potential for this type of problem. Samsung continues to sell these tv's and when you call them up, they pretend they've never heard of this problem before. http://www.avforums.com/forums/lcd-led-lcd-televisions/830165-samsung-lcd-a656-cracking-cracks.html Here is a link reporting some problems people are having with the bezels. Samsung might come and re-tape the bezel or tape a new one on, but what happens when the tape loosens again and again? All these models should be recalled/retro-fitted with a different attaching system.
Pros Great picture, video games and movies look great.
Menus are easy to read and navigate through.
Cons Screen failure after 17 months of light use. Not such an uncommon problem after a bit of "googling". Beware, buy an extended warranty. I thought the TV would last at least 4 years and replace it with a cheap LED. Click-Wheel remote is bad too.
Summary TV was great while it was working. Turned it on one day after work and no picture, but brilliant sound. Hopefully it's not a full on screen failure, otherwise I will buy another TV that is probably equal to the one that broke and is half as much as before. Too bad I am still paying for it.
Pros The picture is incredible in details ,Color and black levels is sweet. the techology for 120hz. is great really makes the difference and the 1080p full HD in my movie is awesome. the quality of samsung is in one word (EXCELLENT)
Cons The remote maybe is much better, the sound of TV speakers is ok . But maybe add SRS Sound wave is great for this LCD the connection maybe add another jacks (coaxia,another optical and final the brand of samsung in a front of HDTV maybe better light.
Summary In my case I RECOMENDED this HDTV is more buy for your money and is sweettttttt for my eyes and my ears
Pros Picture is mind blowing, the 120HZ is truly amazing.
Sound fare exceeds and TV I have heard, no speakers or receivers needed with this TV.
Cons Whats not to like? It's perfect!
Summary My wife and I totally did not except to buy a TV at all. The circuit board fried on our 32" Insignia after only 1.5yrs. Going to straight to Best Buy took home this amazing TV. The picture is so real that our cat was faked out and was trying to attack a dog on the screen from some show on Natgeo. I TV truly provides a special viewing experience and I will stick to Samsung from here on out!!!My wife and I totally did not except to buy a TV at all.

Pros Amazing picture quality for an LCD.
Top of the line ToC style.
Perfect TV for any gamer and blu-ray lover.
Cons Glossy screen finish may cause as much glare as a Plasma in well lit rooms.
Summary An amazing looking television! Piicture quality, performance, style, this tv has it all. Excelent for gaming and blu-ray movie viewing. A bit of glare and a fairly high price tag add to the cons, but an overall excellent tv.
