"High Quality Picture with some drawbacks"3.0 starson by jreagle18
Pros: very clear HD picture, bright/vivid colors, good sound quality, contemporary design, 4 HDMI inputs, ability to customize tv and name inputs, remote, internet features
Cons: pricey, very reflective screen (not ideal for bright rooms), connectivity issues faced with Comcast cable box connected via HDMI, some features such as AnyNet+ confusing/confounding, TV internet widgets slow to load and use
Summary: To be short, I feel that the cons outweigh the pros when it comes to this TV. My girlfriend found this set on sale at Sears due to the fact that the model was discontinued and it was the last one left. Since it was a shelf model and she was a Kmart employee (pharmacist), she paid less than $700 for a TV that went for $1499 only a month ago.
Do not spend $1499 on this TV if that's the price. There are so many better sets out there for the price. But for under $700, it's a steal. The HD picture is bright, vivid, clear, and crisp especially considering that it's hooked up to a Comcast box (Comcast HD is notoriously poor). But, she had to swap the box out for an older box due to connectivity issues between Samsung and Motorola DVRs.
The worst part is the reflective screen and contemporary styling (not for everyone). If you are considering placing this set in a bedroom and/or basement, it will be an ideal TV for your purposes But do not place it in a bright room with a lot of ambient lighting like most American household living rooms. Samsungs have notoriously reflective screens, go with an LG or Vizio. My girlfriend plans on eventually placing this TV in her bedroom one day. s
