Great TV

James Y., Newegg
8 May 2012
  • Summary: Thought about a "smart" TV, but knew I'd have kicked myself later. Spending the extra dollars just to have a few apps, while STILL hooking it into an HTPC, woulda been just plain silly!
  • Pros: Milked the old Tube TV for all it had. It finally forced the issue of retirement. Found this Samsung on sale (newegg) for under $500. Have had it for over a year now and it's been great.
  • Cons: None

Great TV

Michael L., Newegg
29 May 2011
  • Summary: I also snagged a Sony/Google internet TV for a $150 more and love it also, but wish it had as nice of picture as the Samsung. If I catch another deal on this tv, I will buy another one.
  • Pros: I also got this for the $499 deal and that was the biggest reason I bought it, but after owning this most of the winter, it is the best deal I've ever made. The picture is beautiful. The sound isn't too bad either. Plenty of inputs. The light feature on the remote is handy also.
  • Cons: Wish it had a Netflix app onboard, but maybe a firmware update will include it.

Nice picture + DLNA features

David F., Newegg
1 March 2011
  • Pros: I picked up this beauty for $499 with a promo code, which was a phenomenal deal. The set produces a nice crisp picture in full HD, which I doubt could be beat for the price. I spent more time so far toying with DLNA features, which is fully supported with Windows 7 Ultimate, and Pro I believe. Wo...
  • Cons: It doesnt have some of the features of the more expensive TVs, but it was the right price so I can't argue that as a con.

Great T.V.

daniel w., Newegg
25 February 2011
  • Summary: I'm a plasma guy but for the price, only paid $499! I love this T.V. Picture is very well put together after a little messing around with the settings. Overall I would consider buying another one If my plasma wasn't so new!
  • Pros: Looks great, beautiful picture, and good sound! plenty of ins and outs! Can't wait to mount on the wall. Even shuts off my Blueray when I power off the T.V.
  • Cons: None!!!

Great Product

Hansal S., Newegg

  • Pros: It's a great product. Easy to assemble. Best price (499).
  • Cons: It takes few seconds to start when you press power on button but I think I can take it with the picture quality.

Excellent value

Brianna S., Newegg
12 December 2010
  • Summary: A very nice display panel overall. Not a fan of the rear facing speakers, but I don't use them anyways. Remember that the #1 thing that determines how much power your TV sucks down is brightness. It can mean the difference between 35w and 75w pulldown.
  • Pros: Sharp, clear picture Strong backlight Lots of inputs Excellent upscaling quality Good contrast Good viewing angles "Touch of color" edging makes it look a bit classier than the usual black.
  • Cons: Input labelling isn't user definable to differentiate between multiple inputs of the same type of device (PCs for example). The input name actually controls how the TV handles the signal coming into the set; it makes a certain sense, but it's not really naming an input, it's more of defining an i...
