Summary: With so many TVs to choose from it is difficult to choose. The only thing that is really worth talking about with this TV is the 60fps refresh rate. I was told all over the place that it takes at least 120fps to have clear 3D, but I have not noticed a flicker at all. In fact I would say that it is better than most of the 3D TVs I have seen displayed at most brick ad mortar stores.
Summary: This display is a very attractive item on my wall. Picture quality is pretty good considering I have not had the tv professionally setup or dialed in. I have been tinkering with picture settings on the display and on my PS3 which is primarily what display is displaying, and have not figured it out! I can get a great picture when still images or moving images are displayed.
Summary: The 3D is awesome. Point blank. Lose your glasses? Grab a pair at the theatre next time you see a 3D movie. The 2D picture is just as good as my lcd sharp aquos. The only beef I have against this tv is the chokehold on audio output. It should be a pass through design, not a bottle neck... severe downfall. It forces any signal of audio input, may it be 5.1, 7.1 dps, dssr, it doesnt matter, it forces it down to a stereo output.
Summary: This TV is definitely the best TV I've owned, and probably the best picture I've seen on an LCD TV. It's loaded with connections including an ethernet port so you can access your computer's files without needing to connect your computer to the TV. (Provided that you have a wireless network setup in you home.) I watch movies in the living room from my laptop in the bedroom---that's an awesome feature that I didn't even know was possible!
Summary: I'm loving this TV just got it in Black Friday and after calibrating it the image is outstanding the 3D is also very enjoyable and the glasses extremely comfortable. As a sound engineer I think that the sound quality and tweaking options of this TV are actually somewhat bad though not a big deal since most people will be using external speakers anyway.
Summary: I second all the great stuff others have said about this TV. The weakest points for me are that the remote control is not lighted making it hard to use in the dark. Also, the sound quality could be better. A lighted universal remote and surround sound system are now on my shopping list.
Summary: There are two component video jacks on the rear, however RCA jacks apparently can only be used in second one. Any device you intend to plug into the first jack will need to have a High Resolution AV / HDTV / EDTV Component Cable. Had to order one for the Wii, as they don't come with them.
Summary: I had done lots of online research on what kind of 3D TV I could get for my very small budget of under $650. As you can imagine, my selection was very small. It had to be at least 47" since I was replacing a 57" rear projection crt tv. I had narrowed it down to a Samsung 51" 720P active 3D plasma. I could order it through Amazon for just around $650. I had chosen this 51" plasma due to its size and price.
