Summary: I upgraded from a Sony Wega, so this LCD is quite a step up. The picture is, of course, lightyears better than a CRT. Without a side-by-side comparison, I bet that most casual users cannot tell the difference between the models in Samsung's line. What anyone can appreciate, is a 52" screen. For the price of a leading edge LED, I can buy two trailing edge LCD's (a 52" and a 32"). The sound is lacking, but just search for optimal audio settings online.
Pros: Attractive Design, Bright Image, Fast Setup, Good Connection Options, Good Resolution, Good Value
Summary: I use the tv 6 hours a day and I love the clarity. I have a room with 20 windows and the matte finish is good for not reflecting images from the outside. I do wish the sound was better. I hooked the sound up to my Bose system so that helped a lot.
Pros: Attractive Design, Bright Image, Fast Setup, Good Connection Options, Good Resolution, Reduced Glare, Simple Controls
