Summary: Owned since March 2010. Ordered from ABT, because they are most trusted name in electronics in my neighborhood of Chicagoland. This is why I don't buy into extended warranties, I trust my instincts... and the most favourable reviews in its class. Quality performance thus far, and I expect far into the future... I cant find a single fault here!
Summary: Blacks directly in front are very good, but dark colors and grays lighten up considerably from just a slight angle. Some detail seems to be lost in near black portions of the picture. Overall picture is very bright with rich color. No S-video input, don't know why they left that out. Slightly more overscan than some other brands.
Summary: My wife and I bought two Sony Bravia HDTVs through Amazon. We were very unimpressed and disappointed, and sent both back. I kept hearing about how" Samsung blows Sony away, including from a buddy at work (who's girlfriend bought one and raves about it). After reading reviews online, we bought two of the 32" Samsungs. We hooked them up yesterday (I should say after years of Direct TV, we just switched to Veriozon FIOS, which is FAR superior).
Summary: after months of research, I settled on this TV because I knew Amazon would back me 100%. The shipping was timely, and the tv arrived in perfect condition. The set up was average and my family was enjoying their favorite shows in no time. The sound is great and the picture quality very good. There are several settings to choose from. My only complaint is that it stretches the picture sideways a bit but with all the other pros, not many grumbles have ensued.
