"Best tv ever made"on by lvllcbl
Pros Pros: The tv itself is stunning. The picture quality is equal to that of even the new Pioneer Kuro.
Cons A bit pricy, but considering the soon to come competition, this tv is going to be a bargain.
Summary "Every year a new piece of technology comes out and makes last year's equipment outdated. Well, I had just bought the 81f (last year's top model) and then came across this beauty in the store. Why did I choose this tv?
1. I will put my money towards a Samsung product any day. Sony products look nice, but you end up paying more for the name.
2. The tv can render images that you might think can only be done with 120mhz refresh, but yet somehow this tv with the 120 turned off still renders amazing views.
3. The tv can reach black levels that no other lcd can. Given, there are new lcds coming in a month or more that will compete and they will boast a 200mhz or greater refresh rate. But, they will cost at least 1k more.
4. I am not a big fan of the 120 mhz refresh rate, but since I can turn it off and have near Plasma tv like imagery, I find myself more than happy with this tv. Also, the 120 and above refresh rates really bother my eyes. It might sound odd, but I can catch the tv while it does that and it bothers me for some reason. Given, 120 allows for some amazing images, it just is not for me.
To summarize my poorly written review, I must say that this is the best tv out there right now. The other televisions that will soon be arriving stateside will boast the same tech and might have some shiny new gadgets, but from what I have seen from IFA this is going to be in the top three list for tvs in 2008-2009.
One last thing. The pre-loaded content and the RSS feeds are nice but not noteworthy. Buy this tv for its' amazing picture quality and great technology
Pros Great image quality, LED backlighting, good sound, lots of inputs
Cons Expensive :(
Summary This TV looks great. Almost no image blur, even in fast movie scenes. The LED backlighting does wonders for the picture quality. Definitely one of the best LCD TVs on the market today. So if you can afford it, you won't be disappointed.
"nothing compares"on by hackelr
Pros crystal clear picture! hate watching other tv's.
ease of use, i was able to set up perfect only to waste money on the geek squad.
Cons none noted so far.
Summary i had a hard time with buying my tv reading all of the reviews. i went to best buy for 3 hours trying to find another tv that was better. i have had it for two weeks and no regreats at all. well worth the price, you'll see.
Pros I loved the fact that it is so light (30kg, or about 70 lbs, including stand). The connectivity; HD TV shows and movies are so clear, it is like you are there .
I got the LA46A950 for Australia, which is the same TV with minor regional diffs.
Cons Yet to see the value in DLNA, the 'standards-based' system for sharing content on your network with your TV.
Summary One of the best ways to spend $US 3 grand I know.
"Amazing!!!"on by aypues
Pros Color is flawless. Blacks are so deep. Way punchier and sharper than any plasma on the market including the Pioneer Elites.
Cons Slight off axis fading, but not bad.
Summary Amazingupdate: Mr Katzmeier's review states: "Worse, the 950 series remotes remove the handy "P Size" button in favor of a "Content" key, so you have to navigate into the menu to change aspect ratio." Not completely true. Simply hit TOOLS on the remote and it gets you right to the Aspect Ratio adjustment - EASY!

Also, the "old" (2007) auto wall mount WMN5090 works perfectly with my 55" 950 even though the manual says it won't. Love it!
