"Best and Brightest picture I've seen to date"4.5 starson by cmdel07
Pros: Most accurate colors available in an LED
Video processing is excellent for an LCD/LED
Best 3D processing I've seen
Alot of bells and whistles
Cons: Screen uniformity, but not noticeable with the programming I watch, mostly well lite live sports and documentaries. If you're a big movie fan you might notice it more.
Summary: I've waited 3 years to jump into the 3D game and I'm happy with my choice. This TV delivers the best balance of performance and features of any I've seen. The new Sony is close, but has less accurate colors, so I put it a grade under the Samsung. To me color accuracy and video processing are the most important features in a TV. This TV will not disappoint, unless you are a big movie fan that is anal about black levels and screen uniformity.I was a little disappointed with the black uniformity, but found out in calibration that using the "Movie" setting doesn't yet work with uniformity . After I re-calibrated in the "Standard" setting the picture absolutely POPS! This LED already has excellent color accuracy and video processing, once it's calibrated it really shines. The holy grail of a high quality HDTV is to give such depth perception and contrast in such a way that a 2D HDTV program looks almost like a 3D HDTV program. In every high quality HDTV program that I've watched with this LED there is at least one scene where the pictures looks so much like a 3D picture(but it's 2D), that I have to do a double-check to make sure I'm not wearing the 3D glasses. There is no HDTV on the market that can do all things as well as this HDTV. I've owned the best monitors through the years: Pioneer, Sony, Samsung, Toshiba, Panasonic and Sharp. They have all lead the pack in their year of excellence and Samsung has done it for 2012.
