Pros Excellent picture, nice user interface. Very happy with the slim design and views from the sides.
Cons The highly anticipated "apps" will only play sound through the internal TV speakers. There is no fix to get the sound to play to your external speakers.
Summary I was very disappointed to pay big bucks for this TV, and an additional $80 for the wireless adaptor in order to get the apps, just to find that I can not listen to any of the apps on my surround sound system. I originally bought this TV because of the apps and was thinking I might not need a Blu Ray player, because some apps stream Blu Ray quality movies to the TV. However when I contacted Samsung they told me on three different occasions that the apps will ONLY play sound through the tiny internal speakers on the TV and that there is no fix available. A company as established as Samsung owes it to it's customers to provide this information. When I talked to the specialist at Best Buy and HH Gregg they were also unaware of this issue. With bad customer service, and misleading advertising, I will be returning my TV and going with another brand.
Pros I love the ultra-thin design and great picture quality.
Cons The Internet-ready is simply not ready. I bought this TV for the @Internet feature - primarily streaming NetFlix. Unfortunately, this TV can't seem to take advantage of my ~30mbs download speeds.
Summary The TV only gets <1mbs, while all of my laptops get ~30mbs. It seems like a problem with the firmware, so I hope they fix it soon.
Pros Easy Setup, Great Picture, Nice Sound and Mates Beautifully with the Samsung BDC6500 Wi-Fi Blu-ray Player.
Cons This set recognizes a signal on HDMI and changes but not on component, very small con.
Summary This is a fantastic upgrade from LCD. Circuit city has them on sale for 1199.00, that?s less than I paid for my Sanyo 46?. You will not be sorry, another great item from Samsung.
Pros Very slim, handsome design. Picture remarkable, especially baseball!
Cons Have called Samsung tech support numerous times, friendly but inconsistent and ultimately (as of now) unable to provide solution. I purchased wireless dongle ($79/BestBuy) to access widgets and Internet@TV features.
Summary Great looking set, but Samsung may have released model with widgets and Internet @TV access before it was ready. It would be more reassuring if Samsung Tech Support had consistent solution suggestions for solving access problems. First it was a Comcast problem, now they are pointing fingers at Netgear. In the meantime, I've spent hours with tech support, don't have access to a feature that helped make my purchase decision and I'm stuck with unnecessary and useless $79. option that provides no value.
Seeking advice through forums, but no progress yet. I'll update this posting if I ever find a solution.
Pros Looked at Sony, Sharp, Panasonic and Hitachi LED TV's and Samsung hands down had nicer, clearer and sharper image!
Cons Needed to contact Samsung support in order to download software for internet connectivity. Very easy to do, but this was an extra step in the process of getting your TV set up.
Summary Disagree with CNET reviewer on the picture quality of this LED vs LCD. This LED has a 5,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio and produces a picture quality that surpases any LCD HDTV that I have seen. The Series 6 Samsung cosmetically is a very attractive looking frame and stand. You won't be disappointed!!
