Pros Great picture quality, especially for the price.
Distinct colors, Very light.
Fast motion scenes seem ok so far.
Energy Star cost of $6-$12 per year to operate.
Cons No audio out on this TV, you cannot hook up to external speakers.
Summary After spending many years with my loyal CRT televisions, I've finally stepped-up to a true HDTV. I usually go by the 'If it's not broke- don't fix it' mentality, but in this case I decided the time was right for an upgrade. I must admit I was a little skeptical about how good the picture could be, but WOW! I'm not a 'tv snob' by any means(remember, i JUST made the switch from a CRT) so I didn't know what to expect. Everything now looks so REAL! Don't worry about the specs only being 720p and 60Hz- on a tv this size it really doesn't matter.
Yes, I 'showcased' this model at my local electronics superstore to compare the picture/sound next to comparable models before I bought it and I recommend anyone in the market for one do the same. *start rant- I don't understand why brick-and-mortar stores get so upset about this! I'm physically IN their business- i've taken the hardest part of selling out of the equation! - end rant* Next to the other name brands there was no comparison. I also appreciated seeing the Energy Guide stickers on all the models. This particular Samsung is very energy-efficient compared to the others in it's size range(it's more on par with the power-consumption of 19-26 inch tvs).
As everyone has noted - the sound is nothing to write home about. My old CRTs had big, front-facing speakers that would rock the room! With the thinner profile these new HDTVs come with the speakers have to face down and can't be very big. I knew this when I tested this unit in person and honestly for the size room(bedroom) I'm putting it in it doesn't matter. I just turn the audio up and all is well(for me anyways)! Some reviewers have mentioned adjusting the bass, etc. and that will probably help, but again I don't really have a huge problem with it. The lack of audio-out options could be a deal-breaker for the 'home theater' buffs.
Overall, I'm really enjoying my new tv. I'm picking-up the over-the-air digital signal(free) and watching movies with a newer Sony DVD player that has upgrading? and HDMI output(see my other review there). Sound is the only thing keeping it from being a 5 star rating.
