TV plus others with good tuner if you're 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: 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.
I would throw it out tomorrow if I had a replacement.

Summary: For the price it is just "OK". Speakers don't work, can't split the screen as described, Windows XP doesn't recognize the monitor. Cables are not included and it is difficult to find anyone that will tell you what cables to buy, I am on my 5th try. If your just looking for a monitor to watch movies or play games (you will need your own speakers) on it would be ok. If you need productivity out of the picture quality for sales, don't bother.
Great TV for the kids. Ok for watching movies and digital TV.

Summary: I purchased this after reading the great reviews. It's a great monitor for the kids room. The size is ok up to maybe six to eight feet away. Movie watching from any digital source is very good but blurring is an issue in moving scenes. Digital Cable TV viewing doesn't quite compare to CRT quality but is ok. Text and graphics are very good so long as they aren't moving. Some graphics are washed out but can be made a little better through adjustment.
Summary: The picture is very crisp and most everything is a plus for this model. The exception is the sound it seems very weak. I know my hearing is not strong, however we have the unit very close to max volume even for my wife to hear it well.
