"Good TV for medium-sized, straight-on room"3.5 starson by Walkman 1956
Pros: Great picture. Good sound. Good value.
Menus easy to follow - and a good thing, because you will spend some time with them!
Cons: Lots of searching and tweaking to get the picture right - Tweak TV and CNET hugely helpful here.
Viewing angle really drops off left and right - works for us given our setup, but would not be good in a wide room.
Summary: The set was easy to install - but the picture tweaking process was a bit daunting, and I think I'm pretty tech-savvy. HD picture is great. Regular DVDs upconvert to a stellar picture. Standard def channels look fine, but you'll get spoiled by the HD picture.
The viewing angle is limited - if you are essentially "straight on, you're do great. If you have a lot of left-to-right space for viewing, you'll want to consider another set.
I'd buy it again - especially if it came with a little more set-up info and the Samsung engineers worked on improving the angles.
