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.
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.
Summary: We are using 5 of these in an industrial environment inside of a weather proof enclosure to display production data and we haven't had 1 problem with any of them. The screen color looks great. The oldest one is 5 months old now and still working great.
Summary: I did not buy this offline i bought in store at walmart 3 1/2 years ago for $800 its a great tv never have had a problem. Im a gamer and enjoy blue ray and this tv looks great ive love my samsung tv.
