Summary: Very disappointing! Picture quality is great. Sound quality was great. Until I blew the speakers. I admit, my fault. I like to listen to my movies loud. Once the speakers were blown, I bought a samsung home theatre system to fix my speaker problems, but come to find out, THERE IS NO AUDIO/VIDEO OUTPUTS. I can not return the t.v. since it was purchased in the late summer of 2012. One would think that if a t.v.
Summary: Excellent picture, Samsung quality, but I agree with the other reviews including a) terrible sound, b) no audio output connection other than the standard A/V RCA cable that goes to your cable box, and c) poorly designed stand that doesn't swivel. Beware of the "surround sound" offered by these TVs; such a title is dubious at best. Sound is tinny and weak, coming out of the metal back. Some sounds caused rumbling against the speaker casing. Poor design by Samsung.
Summary: I know televisions fairly well and am extremely picky about my electronics. I got a 46" for $400. So, expectations were tempered. At 60 Hz, they were even more tempered. This television blew me away. There's zero motion blur, it came pretty decently calibrated right out of the box (needed some tweaking with my absurdly naturally bright living room), and the sound is not lacking at all assuming you're not stuffing it in an entertainment center.
Summary: I have always heard that they where the top of the line!! I took my Vizio and put it in my bedroom but my Wife and I both feel that it just as good if not better then the Samsung..The speakers have something wrong with them or something but I use a sound bar.
Summary: I'm a little bit frustrated with you Amazon reviewers. I went to Walmart today to buy a television, and before I selected this TV I scanned it to read the reviews. I saw it had 4 and a half stars so I thought how could I go wrong? I should have read the reviews, and I would have found out the big problem. The speakers are just terrible. It distorts quite a bit and the volume is very low.
Samsung puts out superior products. I would buy Samsung again.

Summary: This TV is wonderful. The picture is superior, the sound is great and hooking it up to my components was easy. It is like having a little movie theatre right in my own livingroom. I am very happy with my purchase.
lack of inputs / outputs really ruins this tv. motion blurr

Summary: This tv has zero audio output to hook a surround directly to it. That's not a huge deal breaker bc you can always connect all of your devices to your sound system then out to the tv. Pain , but at least you can use surround.....was goin to live with that until.... My major gripe is you basically get one hdmi, and one of the following two inputs. either rca composite, or component. But you cannot have both bc they share a common terminal..
Summary: Disappointed in Samsung for not giving this TV audio output jacks so you can connect to a receiver or other output. Ebay item number 221156873902 solves this problem, but still, this is uncharacteristic of Samsung. This is a 4-star TV, but the lack of audio output really sets it back big time. Had I known, I would have purchased another model with output jacks. Picture is pretty good and sound is fine. Has 2 HDMI inputs and component.
