Summary: Tv was back ordered. Arrived within a week of ordering. We were pleased with shipper who communicated concerning the delay. We are pleased with picture quality and size in our den. Volume control/quality is adequate but not ideal. We have similar issues with our 19 inch Samsung kitchen tv...week audio.
Summary: This LED TV looks SHARP when watching high definition channels. It is light and extremely thin and up to par with my expectations from Samsung. I tried to use this as a secondary monitor for my Mac Mini and it looks terrible. I realize this is a TV and not made as a monitor for a computer but I figured as an LED with 1080p resolution, it would look alright. Well I was wrong.
Summary: I did my homework before spending my money and found Samsung was one of the best reviewed TV's. I'm very happy with it but it did take awhile to get the picture just how I wanted it, just adjusting from my prior TV. The sound is not great, a lot of times it sounds like my little clock radio, but I hear this is a common complaint with flat screen TVs and I plan to get some additional speakers. I would recommend this TV.
Summary: I bought the receiver with the Klipsch HD500 Home Theater Speaker system as a package deal. This is my first surround sound system and so far I am very pleased with what I got. Before buying, I was a bit skeptical on the receiver because there were lots of mixed reviews. I am not using the Anynet feature, so I cannot comment on that issue. I do agree that the manual is a bit lacking. It shows generic setups and menu trees but offers basically no troubleshooting help.
Summary: I picked this up on a pre-black Friday deal through a Newegg vendor for $180. It wasn't the most pleasant experience, and I certainly prefer using Amazon pass through vendors or the ones at Newegg. Still, overall I'm pleased with the receiver with a few caveats. First, the receiver sounds great, the HDMI switching works well with my Sony BD player, Xbox 360 and Home Theater PC. It works and for the price, I couldn't really expect more.
Summary: Picture quality is fantastic but..., there is no audio output on this TV. Probably does not matter to most people. If you are hooking up surround sound, does not matter. Personally, I have been more than happy with the sound quality of a couple of good quality PC speakers hooked up to the headphone jack of my previous TVs. This allows volume to be controlled with the existing remote control and results in easier hook-up and less cable clutter.
Summary: The Samsung television has been in our kitchen for about two weeks - no problems. The television is light and fit up on a built out shelf perfectly. The package was sustantial and thus no damage during shipping even though the edges of the box were worn. The set up of the televisoin was easy and accomplished in about 15 minutes. The picture is what I have grown to expect from Samsung - excellent. I like everything about the set except the sound is somewhat lacking.
Crisp Standard-Definition Picture/Great For Bedroom

Summary: After a period of adjustment, I've come to be quite pleased with the quality of this TV. Standard-Definition looks crisp on this TV - and, after having seen the way other brands of TV render standard-definition signals (when I was trying to see if a different TV would be a better fit) - I have to believe that this Samsung TV is among the very best among the recent "entry-level" TVs at displaying standard-definition TV.
Summary: Picked this up to be a TV in my bedroom. It works great, though using a standard definition signal for cable doesn't seem to work to well. Some times the channels look like they are cut off if it is in full screen mode, and in wide screen mode everyone looks really fat. This doesn't happen on my Sony LCD, or any other Samsung LCDs I have, but with those I did spend more for the TVs, so I figure it is the "level" of TV I purchased.
Summary: The bottom line: it's a good receiver, that puts out a lot of power, decodes all the industry standards, weighs next to nothing, has a good design, and supports HDMI 1.4. The same features, in a high quality receiver, cost about 6-10 times more - literally. My story: So we bought a new samsung 3D tv (55" 8000 series) and got their 3d blu-ray package with it... well of course this means that our old sound system wasn't going to cut it anymore.
