Excerpt: Ahhh, the television. My greatest friend, and my greatest foe when I have a paper due within 3 hours before class and I have yet to start. I purchased this television from costco for my room, and I used to have a small, cube-like LCD TV. It was definitely time to get a monitor that was less cubey and more flat and high definition. This television is definitely bright and the colors are crisp and clear.
Excerpt: I use this TV in my room mainly just for cable or to watch shows off my media player. I must say I love all the features of this TV! It has many different options when watching regular cable TV to get a better picture quality. It also supports many types of resolutions and aspect ratios, including the common 1080p (1920 x 1080). It has a ratio of 16 by 10, so unfortunately all shows watched have black bars whether it is 4 by 3 or 16 by 9.
"Fantastic monitor with slightly too bright blacks."

Pros: First, the monitor itself. Works flawlessly, no dead or stuck pixels, no flickering or any other issues at all. Second, the performance. As a computer monitor, it looks fantastic. Bright, accurate colors. Very sharp. Screen is not reflective so it i
Cons: The only con I think is significant enough to mention is that the blacks are not as black as I wish they were. Granted, as a cathode-backlit LCD, it is what it is, but still the bright bleed top and bottom is fairly annoying. Especially since it's a 16:
Summary: Highest acclaim... I bought this product to replace my old PC's antiquated 19" CRT (which had burnt out during a power outtage in a December snow storm). It is my first LCD widescreen format display. It has a smaller footprint than the original CRT and I have reclaimed a lot of useful desk space. I was stunned by the visual quality of the Samsung image. The colors are so vibrant - my eyes don't tire quickly anymore.
Summary: great for a PC / TV setup - I'm now using 2 side by side and I wonder how I ever got along with a 19" On the TV side it pulls in a lot of HD channels pictures on all levels are crisp and the remote and functions are easy to navigate - highly recommended for performance and price.
Summary: The TV is one of the nicest I have ever owned. The picture is awesome. Setup was a snap. The sound is ok but could be run through an amp and better speakers. I have ATT and the best picture is with component hookup, not hdmi. Haven't tried to use as a computer monitor yet but it should be great. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an additional tv in bedroom or office.
