Summary: After researching several brands and models, I decided to go with this one, because the price, $319, seemed so reasonable. Unfortunately, you get what you pay for. It was great for the first year, but then the tv would randomly shut off by itself for no apparent reason.
Summary: After 15 months (i.e. 3 months out of warranty) of VERY light use (under 100 hours, total on time), the screen started flickering within minutes of turning the set on. After another 5-10 minutes, the screen goes black. The sound remains fine. This is true regardless of the input source, cables, etc.
Summary: Others reviewing this TV complained about the sound quility. I have NO complaints. I do realize that this is a smaller TV than my main TV, and therefore has smaller speakers. But for me, the sound quality is fine. The picture is Great. I would buy this TV again.
Summary: I bought this for a small bedroom converted to a home office. It's the perfect size for this space, since viewers are no more than 10 feet from the screen. As expected from Samsung, this one has a great, clear picture, even though it is not connected to a box or any HD source.
perfect television that was advertised in this way

Summary: Small but yet perfect for the bedroom. Outstanding picture and was a great deal.The flat screen was the most probable cause for the purchase. Needed something at least 20 inches and flat too fit on a corner dresser.
Summary: I have this hooked up to an antenna, and the picture from over the air is great. It is neat to see the different signals the TV stations are putting out on the extra digital channels. The picture looks very sharp and nice colors. The sound on the TV is very good for the bedroom also.
Summary: The TV is good, but not great. They say the human eye can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080i, but I can sure tell the difference between this TV and our other Samsung 1080i. But that might also be due to the slower refresh rate on this TV. I recommend the TV anyway.
Great smaller TV, nice picture and suprising sound

Summary: I now have the 60", 32" and 22" version of this same Samsung TV. All the models have a great picture, and for the money, I could not be happier with each TV. The 22" was a purchase for a work out room in the basement.
