Pros Great pcture quality, can't believe i didn't get this sooner, i can't go back to analog
Cons programming channels is a bit tricky,
Summary one of the best investments i made on electronics. It gives me crystal clear reception where before certain channels gave me ghosting esp channels 2 and 4. I can now watch my favorite shows on High Definition and wide screen. I also get additional channels i never had before.
The only problem i have is that, the user cannot just tune into a certain channel by pressing the numbers, the channels first need to be programmed into the box.
Pros Ultra Easy Setup
Cons Lethargic Channel Change Response
Summary I've never owned a piece of A/V equipment that requires such a determined action to change a channel -- you have to click (pointed exactly and sufficient pressure applied) and a second later before the channel changes. Talk about lag -- reminds me of my drag racing days with a huge turbo installed on my motor (took forever to spool up). Otherwise, love it because of its simplicity in setup.
Pros Fairly easy to set up even integrating it into Home Theater. Makes my Sony 40XBR800 really pop.
Cons Novices won't get a lot of answers from manual...I really learned from using it.
Pros I read the reviews and I drove 75 minutes to citcuit city each way for a ($199) HD tuner then I tried to use it downtown chicago and got ony channel 2. My building too much concrete so back this puppy goes. 4 other channels are availible but I couldn't
Cons You may need an outside HD tv antenna if you live in a condo/ concrete building.
Pros exceptional picture quality
Cons horrid user interface
Summary I believe it was Samsung's intention that the guide would be used exclusively for channel changing (giving benefit of the doubt) that was the reason for no direct subchannel input. or some sort of 'discrete' subchannel entry.
Too bad a firware upgrade to fix it.
