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...
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...
Summary: The Samsung HL-S5087W delivers an excellent picture with all the bells and whistles one would want to customize variables to suit ones viewing pleasure. Attached to the correct components, 1080p media is rendered in a stunning display.
Summary: Overall I aagree with the comments on picture quality and overall satisfaction with the unit. One area of annoyance is the constant background noise created from the fan. I have my unit in a large wood open cabinet so the fan noise is a little louder than normal.
Samsung HL-S5087W 50" 1080p DLP HDTV vs sony bravia
Science Guy, Amazon

Summary: Was all set to buy sony bravia 40" lcd at CC, but the new samsung 50" 1080p was right next to it. The picture was AMAZING. Color was sharp, I was able to see a great picture from most angles and the color was fantastic.
Summary: I have the previous model of this TV (with lower resolution) and the picture quality of this new model is much better even with non HD signals. The sound on this model is poor and will not satisfy anyone with any expectations of quality.
