Pros Thin design. Very nice picture quality on bright images.
Cons Edge lighting can be seen in corners on dark screen. Oddly shaped stand presents some issues.
Summary Bought this TV to replace a 46" Samsung DLP after the light engine began to fail for the scond time and it was out of warranty. I was hesitant to buy another Samsung, but after researching all my options I kept coming back to the vibrant picture quality that sold me on my first Samsung. I was not initially happy with the image quality when I first hooked up the TV because everything that I watched looked like it was filmed as if it was a soap opera. But after searching online for calibration settings, I was able to adjust it to my liking and I have to say I am still very pleased with the picture. My on gripe is when viewing programs where the screen should be black, the edge lighting can be seen slightly in the corners (especially in the lower right side). The only other negative is that the X shaped stand forces you to set the TV 5" back from the edge of a TV stand. This is a problem because the entertainment center that I have it in was purchased with the DLP in mind, which I was able to set right up to the edge of the stand. I am 95% happy with the performance of this TV, but wish that I had researched the edge lighting a bit more and bought a full backlit LED.
Pros nice looking model
Cons has green lines when turning the auto motion to "smooth" and watching a wide screen movie.
Summary when watching movies or Cable I see these green lines that keep popping up when watching wide screen movies, it does it on both Direct TV and PS3 I even switched out my HDMI cables for new ones, same problem, so I took the TV back and got a brand new one again and same problem took it back to a different location and same problem again, had Samsung Send me out a Tech to fix it and he didn't even know what to do, he said he never seen anything like it, I think I may have found the problem out, on this model the AC power cord only has 2 prongs instead of 3 like most HDTV's do, I believe since it's not properly grounded it keeps getting a shock, so I bought a Monster Cable power strip to help supply "cleaner" power, same problem, Samsung said they would replace it themselves but I won't see the TV for 2 weeks, this is a joke, what can I do? if you have this model watch a wide screen movie when the black bars show on top and bottom and watch the bottom of the screen and tell me if you get the same issue. I mean I love the TV and everything but those green flashes bother the heck out of me when watching a movie. look at this youtube video I posted of it.
Pros Picture Quality, features, connectivity, design
Cons No built in Wi-fi. Making it work with sorround sound system was difficult. Built in speakers are average.
Summary Got this TV in August to replace a similar one that was stolen. So far I am very satisfied with the purchase. The TV was a bit expensive for the size but the picture is great. Watching blu-rays on it is really cool. All of my friends tell me how impressed they are by the picture quality. The design is very sleek. This TV is very thin and surprisingly light yet sturdy. Comes with plenty of connections.
Only major problem with it is that it doesn't have built in wifi. In order to connect to the internet you have to either purchase a part for ~$50 or plug it in to a LAN line.
