Summary: Purchased the Samsung HL-S5087W 50" 1080p DLP HDTV direct from Amazon November, 2006. Excellent delivery service and setup. The unit has exceptional picture and color quality. Amazon reduced the price a week after my purchase and refunded the difference to my credit card account.
Summary: Purchased my Samsung HL-S5087W 50" DLP HDTV in Dec 2006 from Amazon.com with a 4 year extended warranty. Took the free shipping offer that was available at the time. The TV was delivered in about 10 days in good condition and the delivery men opened the box and allowed me to inspect the TV (especially the screen) for any external damage. Later that evening, my husband and son were able to the setup the TV without any problems. TV picture is beautiful, TV worked fine.
Summary: wow...im impressed...after reading several negative reviews aout the noise and other issues i crossed my fingers in hope that my tv wouldnt have the same defects...luckily it didnt...the loud sound that people complain about is in no way even noticable...ive never even heard it to be honest...I got this tv strickly because i also have a PS3 and wanted to output my games and movies(bluray) in 1080p resolution which this tv does an excellent job..
Summary: We spent a lot of time researching HDTV's that had versatility for gaming and watching TV. This set does it all very well. It is light, delivers superb picture quality and is very easy to set up. It exceeded our expectations!!!
Summary: The TV is great! The picture was pretty much OK with the received defaults settings. My wife thought that the picture was too bright, especially a picture with a white background. There are easy adjustments for just about anything. I am using a cable input with composit input. Everything is great even the non hd stuff. The sound was Ok, but I am using my old Bose surround system and this works great. The audio output is an optical system.
Summary: I have owned this TV for 2 months. Outstanding picture quality. Picture quality is so good I catch myself checking out the background as much as watching the actors. Sporting events, like ths Super Bowl, are almost like setting in the front row. Have not seen any of the rainbow effect on this TV. More than enough connections on the TV. Easy to hookup. Easy to use on screen menu. I have HD digital cable. HD TV picture quality is outstanding.
Summary: I had researched HDTV systems for a long time prior to purchasing this one. I had even scoped out a friend's 3rd gen samsung DLP. This model is amazingly higher in quality than the 3rd gen and is a steal at this price. I have owned this model for about 5 months now and have yet to find any real issue with it. The images are crisp an clear (making folks who have seen HD before say "WOW" still) and the huge selection of inputs and such make for a great and versatile TV.
Summary: Overall I'm quite happy with the purchase of this TV and would recommend it. Just a few notes of things I didn't think about enough.. the viewing angle is very sensitive, so if your entertainment center is too high or too low compared to your viewing position you'll want to either change the tv location or come up with a way to tilt the tv slightly (I'm using 2 DVD cases at the moment).
Summary: We own a competitive 50" TV. Without question the Samsung 1080p just purchased has superior picture quality and is more compact. The footprint allows you to utilize less space with the same screen size as other TV's since the speakers are located on the inside. We have found you need to adjust the picture quality in the beginning to suit you own taste for skin tone etc. Once having accomlished this you are on the road to extreme enjoyment. We could not be more satisfied.
Summary: This TV is outstanding. HDTV on this has spoiled me and limits what I watch to HD. Price at Amazon with my Prime shipping and no tax is unbeatable. Picture brightness and contrast is the best I have seen and looks better to me than plazma or lcd systems in the stores. I was concerned with viewing angles but have been pleasantly surprised. I have the system in the corner of a room and the picture is fine from anywhere in the room (0 to over 45 degrees to each side).
