Summary: Although most universal remotes will not work with this TV, I still love it. I use it primarily as a computer monitor with the picture-in-picture feature to watch the news while I work at the computer.
TV plus others inputs with good tuner if you are not in a fringe area.

Summary: This TV has great potential. It has lots of inputs, lots of ways to adjust viewing angle, energy usage, video and audio properties, etc. But it misses the mark in some ways: the viewing angle settings are different for different inputs, why aren't they all available? Its biggest problem is that a fading signal for off-air stations will put the screen to sleep with difficulty in getting to a stronger station or even to a different input.
Summary: This is last years model and I was very fortunate to have bought a display model for $144 plus tax! It is a great display, I was attracted to the high resolution as a monitor and the TV is great too, think Blu-ray. The only trouble I had was figuring out how to change the settings the store had to receive their satellite feed. From then on everything was perfect. I have never had a Samsung TV fail me and Samsung is easier to use than the less well known models.
Summary: This tv is wonderful. This was my first flat screen tv and put in in my office/guest room, replacing an old style 13" tv. Had limited space to place it, and since it's flat screen, fits perfectly. Can see picture while sitting at desk or lying in bed. This size tv fit my needs perfectly. The picture quality is wonderful and tv basically set itself up. Unpacked it, plugged it in, plugged in cable wire, turned it on, and it basically did all the set up itself.
Summary: I had the opportunity to do a side by side between this and a 22" Vizio E220VA viewing a few different stations all in HD and one in SD. While the difference in SD was slight, HD was very noticeable! Low and behold, the Vizio excelled in the picture quality department. Samsung is one of the most popular, if not the most popular LCD TV manufacture (notice I didn't say LED TV), but to my surprise Vizio outperformed in the detail department. Facial detail is lacking.
Would buy it again if I had to do it all over! Very Happy!

Summary: I primarily use this as a computer monitor on my desk, but the features and clarity of this monitor make it a great value purchase. I like the PIP feature too....if you want to work on your computer you can also put the TV on in the corner so you can do both at the same time. It also has a very nice sleek look to it as well.
Summary: ordered just before Christmas and the product shipped was the wrong one but the company very quickly took action and it arrived on-time, perfect condition and the price was one of the best we had found online. they provided a return label and we just dropped off the wrong item at the UPS store - no hassle.
