"Best LCD Picture I've ever seen."5.0 starson by bobben49
Pros: Blacks rivaling top end Plasma. Bright enough to use in a room with a 4x6 foot skylight and three panel south facing French doors. Picture detail and color saturation are off the scale.
Cons: Costly, pedestrian on-board speakers
Summary: This was on the top of my list after reading cnet and other reviews. Without telling my wife the model number but telling her the price range with this TV at the high end she said that there was no way we could spend more than half what this model cost. We went to Best-Buy and window shopped. . . She kept coming back to this model and was totally bedazzled by how much better the picture was on this unit even when I set the video mode to "standard" from the show room "dynamic" setting. . . We concluded that, despite this model being very pricey, that we would bite-the-bullet and go with what was clearly the best picture quality.
After two month we had a gray horizontal band appear on the screen. It took Samsung less than two weeks to have a replacement screen shipped and installed under warranty at my house by their local technician.
