"Thank you! Samsung"5.0 starson by TripleG99
Pros: Crisp clear picture (using same settings CNET used while testing)
HD channels are simply amazing.
Colors are accurate and vibrant.
Built in Web browser.
Bezel and build quality are sophisticated looking.
Cons: Not many, if I had one gripe, it would be regular non-HD channels pixilate. The picture is suprisingly bad in non-HD, but you buy a TV like this for its HD capabilities, and they are amazing.
Summary: Ordered this TV from Crutchfield, based soley off of CNET's review. I am very impressed with the picture quality and CNET's review was spot on for the most part. A bargain at $1600.00. The thing I am suprisingly most impressed with, not ever owning a 3D capable TV is how awsome this feature is. I didn't make my purchase based off 3D capability, because I didn't think I would use it much. Well I was watching Sunday football in HD and thought I would just see what it looked like in 3D. WOW! switching it back to HD was almost a let down. Which is crazy, because the HD looks so good on it. Don't understand CNET's complaint about noise. I sit with my eyeline being about 9 feet away with the TV wall mounted at eye level, and can't hear any buzzing. Maybe I haven't pushed the TV hard enough, but so far this has been a non-issue for me. This is not your daddy's plasma, it handles ambient light very well. I was concerned about glare from outside light sources, and am impressed with how much plasma technology has advanced.
