"SIMPLY AWESOME!!"on by PhilaGuy
Pros Absolutely spectacular picture, far better than plasma or LCD, and at about half the cost. I wouldn't have believed it without comparing it side-by-side; that sold me immediately!
Cons Not as thin as plasma or LCD, but who cares? It's only 18" thick, or about 9" thinner than a smaller, 55" rear-projection set it replaced.
Summary WOW! Even the non-HD channels look better. HD channels reach a new level of clarity and brightness that easily surpass those of plasma and LCD sets, which look dim, soft, and grainy by comparison. Think of it this way...it's like the difference between watching a new 70mm movie and the CRT color TVs of the 1970s. In fact, I'll probably never set foot inside a movie theater again...my picture is, I think, even better than what I see in the movies, and once I get my surround sound home theater sound system hooked up, I just may never leave my TV room again. The picture is that addictive -- it's so clear, sharp, bright, and real looking. It's like watching a Dutch Master or a French impressionistic painting come to life. My prior set was a Diamond Series top-of-the-line 55" Mitsubishi that I've had for only 3 years -- which wouldn't fit into my new condo. So, what to do...buy a new set -- a larger one, of course. But, it's so much thinner that it fit into the place with ease. And the picture...it simply blows the old one away, as it did when compared with new plasma and LCD sets of the same size. Then, it even costs less -- almost half as much. Funny thing...I would have actually paid more for the quality of this picture. Also, the remote is smart and easy to use -- touch one button and it turns everything on (the set, cable box, theater system, etc.); touch another, and the cable system's menu pops right up. It has a logical layout, clearly marked and nicely shaped buttons, and a good feel in the hand. But even if I had to get up off the lounge chair and cross the room to change channels, I'd have this set just for its amazing and incredible picture!
Pros Ultra crisp HD Picture...The best I've ever seen. You cannot see any pixels
Cons Having to adjust color constantly to get the absolute best picture...though I am so picky so you may not do it as much as me. Haven't found any flaws yet, If I do, I will lower my ranking .
Summary I researched TV's for at least a year before making this purchase, so my desicion was informed. On Paper the JVC dila was supposed to be the better TV (of the Samsung 61" DLP before this generation), but not in reality. Don't even waste your time with Sony's LCD or JVC's DILA trust me. Sony LCDs pixels are too frickin big, JVC's picture is dark (major peeve of mine). I cannot imagine that Mitsubishi can top this TV, and it will likely be way more expensive, so I wouldn't wait if I were you.
I could not stand dark pictures, so I did not want to get a DLP, as all that I saw were relatively dark. NOT SO WITH THIS ONE. Whatever ills that the last generation DLP TVs had are now fixed. Any HD broadcast is bright beautiful and colorful. The color is so amazingly accurate that you will just not beleive it. The picture on this DLP is bright. I am a picky picky person, and I cannot be any more happy with my purchase. Like anything other HDTV, non-hd broadcasts suck.

Pros 3d like images. Color explodes off of the screen.
Cons You wont leave your house. Makes my other TV's look old and outdated.
Summary This is THE Hi-Def screen I have been waiting for. Watching a Hi-Def NFL game will bring tears to any audiophile's eye.
The 1080P display also made my old DVD in 480p pop and gives them a 3d like quality. TI's gen 6 chip gives every color control feature you could ever need or want and more. The true beauty of the Samsung is, you wont really have to change from its default settings. They are right on the mark for every kind of viewing.
With a 10,000 to 1 contrast rating, Black is truely black and white shades have to be seen to believe. Cant wait till the broadcast industry totaly switches to Hi-Def.
"Absolutely amazing HDTV! I did not think I could get this kind of picture in my home."on by chardon
Pros HD is the best I have seen.
Cons Non HD is just so, so.
Summary I researched this for some time, but still had some concerns about my decison to buy. All was put to rest when the set was first plugged in. I already owned a Sharp 32" HD LCD and this set just blew it away. Only problem is that I now find myself watching programs in HD that otherwise I would not bother with. Non HD is not that great especially with long shots, like during a football game where the camera shows a distant view of both teams and a large portion of the field (images are somewhat blurry). Thats when I go upstairs to my LCD. HDTV rates in the 9-10 range but Non HD rates in the 5-6 area.
Pros Bought this tv and will never go to movies again
Cons not ready for 1080P source input through HDMI only PC
Summary Paid about $3300.00 and worth every penny. I bought TV for my home theater. My viewing distance is about 7 feet. This is better than the movies...I cannot see pixels...it's like watching a film. DVD's are amazing...the first day I received tv I spent 6 hours just watching old DVD's again. The only issue I have with the TV is an issue that has nothing to do with the TV but has to do with the source input. I have DirecTV and due to current compression practices most HighDef programing contain lots of motion artifacts and pixelization. It's so bad that I had both a DiecTV and Samsung repairmen check out my hardware. Do a search on motion artifacts to see what I mean. Oh and like all other HDTV's standard def tv is ok but not any better than regular televisons.
