Summary: Intro: Buying this TV was worth every penny of its already reasonable price tag. Samsung is the leader in television design these days, so you can't go wrong if you're buying one. This 26" is a lot more impressive, size-wise, than you would imagine.
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.
Summary: The TV works fine. My problem is that the cable tv master control does not work the sound on the tv. The remote that came with the tv works fine but I have to use both that one and the cable box remote to watch tv.
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.
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...
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.
