Oldie but goodie

Excerpt: As of 11/16/2010, this television is now in its 3rd generation (C series, this one is A) and I still love it to this day. I love the swivel stand that Samsung implements on almost all their televisions which I don't understand why other manufacturers do not follow suit. I don't need 120hz, because I hate the soap opera effect. I don't need internet apps because I don't want to buy the $50 wifi adapter (I can use my blu ray player with wifi built in).
Excerpt: I purchased this tv back in April 2009 as I was wanting to go from a tube TV to a BIG screen. I liked the 46, but still wanted it bigger and the 52 inch is perfect sized. Great for watching day to day tv, and the fact that it's 60hz doesn't slow this tv down. Performs great, and gives you a stunningly clear picture. I've got the Playstation 3 hooked up for games, Netflix, Blu-Ray, and using with my home network.
Excerpt: I purchased my Samsung LN52A550 52 in. HDTV LCD TV about 2 years ago and have not regretted a single moment. It was a little pricey when I bought it but it was worth it at the time to get my first big screen TV. I love how it swivels from right to left according to which side of the room everyone is positioned. The picture is always clear. The picture in picture is very easy to use and has a beautiful picture, while the 52 inch screen allows for both sides to be seen.
Summary: We did weeks of research to inform our jump to a 21st-century TV (we were still on a boxy CRT before!), and Amazon reviews were key for us - so we wanted to provide one of our own now that we're a couple of weeks into our purchase. This TV is amazing. First of all, the Amazon process could not have been better - the TV was shipped in flawless condition, the delivery company showed up within 20 minutes of the beginning of our selected window, and they put the TV on its...
Summary: I bought this TV because it was about 200 dollars cheaper on here that it was at Sams Club. I bought this with the free shipping from Amazon and it came actually just as fast as regular shipping. Sharp image, and it seems to make my plain DVD player(not blu-ray or up-converting DVD, just the old ones) seem better. Its got some engine that smooths out the picture. The TV is super thin too. Its definitely worth the price in my opinion.
Summary: Amazing picture. Sound not so great as tiny speakers aim down from the bottom ridge of tv. I cant believe how thin the television is and how bright the picture is. It plays most everything I've thrown at it in perfect color and very little pixelation. No warm up time like Standard LCD TVs and much easier to watch. I highly recommend this TV. If you're going to buy an LCD television...make sure it is backlit with LEDs. Samsungs out-perform all the other brands.
Picture is crisp and crispier. Excuse me while I pick up my eyeballs off the floor.

Summary: The Good: *Vibrant colors--of which ancient, grunting, CRT-watching man could only dream. *HD content is displayed so realistically I'll quit my job and live under a bridge to watch TV all day. *Even standard-def shows look quite good on this set, like super models only five or ten years past their prime. *Black levels are significantly deeper than I would have expected based on all the online whinging about edge-lit LED screens (e.g.
Summary: This TV has an amazing picture, vibrant colors, crisp, bright images. I use my receiver for sound so I really can't comment on the speakers but I have used them a few times and they're unremarkable. There are your typical sound modes (surround, music, etc.) but they really seem to only change the sound minimally. If you're paying over a grand for a tv, I would imagine you also have a surround sound setup in your house so it doesn't really matter.
Summary: This was our 1st lcd/led tv purchase, and I did a lot of research, as well as asking friends for their reviews of lcd tv's they owned. Samsung seemed to top all other brands and we are not disappointed in our purchase. We choose the 46'LED un46c6300 model for our family room because of the reviews and the excellent price we got from AMAZON during the Thanksgiving sale($999.99). Our room has a lot of natural light and the picture is fantastic.
Summary: I love this television.....don't listen to the other reviews that are ridiculously picky about remote buttons and the like......I have owned this set since 8-2010 and it is awesome.....you won't be sorry with your choice here......all around great set.....I would recommend this to everyone!!!!!!
