"Good...but not Great LED TV"3.5 starson by dkushnir
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.
