lack of inputs / outputs really ruins this tv. motion blurr
18 February 2013
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.
Summary: TV has a nice picture and okay sound for a flat screen. Nice set of features. There is one major negative. The TV stand for table mounting is completely useless. It provides no stability, the TV slopes backwards slightly and it rocks with the application of an ounce or two of force. There is no doubt that a child jumping up and down near the TV would cause it to topple. As an engineer I was shocked that a major company would employ such an obviously deficient design.
