OK in 2 weeks time am upgrading my receiver and more review will follow.
Despite some real draw-backs, this is a decent-to-good HDTV

Summary: I picked up this LED TV as a Best-Buy Doorbuster on Black Friday 2010. Well, lets get down to business. The picture quality on this TV is excellent, black levels are deep, color reproduction is surprisingly accurate, and natural. The clarity is amazing, especially while playing Blu-rays. I use a Playstation 3 for Blu-ray playback, and, I can tell you, the depth in the picture is astounding.
Summary: Edge lit corners are more prominent in a dark room and thus ruin the viewing experience. It seemed like someone was holding a small torch close to the bottom two corners. Maybe I got a bad set but I'm staying away from Edge lit TVs. Plasma all the way!!! Picked up the pn50c8000 couldn't have been more happier.
Summary: Most of this TV is amazing so it's hard to write an average review. I'll break this down in simple terms (nobody likes essay reviews) Sound - not nearly as bad as other people say. I actually thought it was above average Look of TV - Gorgeous (this should be obvious) Price- Can't beat it Now the big one ... wait for it ...VIDEO Video - The video quality during the DAY is fabulous. One of the best images on a TV i have ever seen.
Uneven backlighting, light bleed during predominantly black scenes

Summary: I've owned my Samsung UN46C6300 for about 3 months now, and this is the 2nd Samsung I've ever purchased (My first is a 52" LCD). Picture quality is superb and brightness is more than adequate. LOVE the glossy look and thinner bezel than my LCD. Unfortunately, I've noticed that this set has uneven backlighting, almost looking like splotches where more light bleeds in during predominantly black scenes.
Summary: I ended up have the same 'defects' that a couple other reviewers had (and unfortunately did not read before purchasing). In low light conditions the corners bleed light when the screen is dark or nearly dark. The only way to describe it is that it kind of looks like the TV screen itself is a piece of black construction paper and there are 4 small light bulbs behind each corner.
Summary: I bought this model at a local brick and mortar, because of their excellent return policy and generous financing offer (0% for 36 weeks.) I was totally pleased by the picture quality after the setup, which was done in daylight to facilitate the install re the cables, etc. It was installed in a bright room, with southwestern facing windows, and the brightness and clarity were perfect. Setup is easy, and the menu is user friendly, with the manual as a good reference.
Summary: The TV is 5 months old and was malfunctioning when it arrived. Apparently it is a problem that is not unique to this set. Otherwise, this TV has great picture quality. Samsung was quick to honor the warranty but their local service outlet was not. I would rate this TV as average and a bit overpriced (new). So far, I would rate Samsung above average in handling complaints.
