Summary: after having this Tv for a couple of years i can say the picture is just awesome but be ready for hardware issues, random reboots and video processing card to die. I also get the random lines on the screen once in awhile. Sounds quality is ok not as good as sony.
Summary: After 4 years I started having problems with the TV where it would randomly turn off then back on several times. I check the internet and noticed many others were having the same problem and a free fix was available. I called in my TV and a repair person came out in May 2012.
after all these years I still get compliments on the picture quality

Summary: Even though I purchased this TV about 5 years ago the picture quality is still outstanding. Even some friends that have purchased newer televisions say that the picture is sharper and the color contrast is great.
Bad TV... stay away from this and other Samsung product

Summary: While this TV has a great picture, it failed after two plus years of use. According to the Samsung repair service, the problem is a screen failure, with horizontal lines which cross the screen until the tv warms up... about 25 minutes.
Summary: The Samsung LN52A850 52" LCD is a dud. I got it 2 years ago for what was a "good priced," open-box deal on this unit- $1978-- now LCD's are much cheaper. Worked fine until a few months ago when I started noticing "ghosting" in the lower right corner at power-on. It went away after 5 minutes.
Summary: This was a great TV, until after 2 years of use when the picture went completely black. The warranty has gone out, and Samsung will do nothing to help. I took it to the approved local Samsung repair shop, and they told me they would never buy a Samsung product.
Summary: We purchased this TV in late 2008, and now, in early 2011, it is already a piece of junk. At first, the picture on this TV was beautiful - we had seen a model at Best Buy, but Amazon had a better price.
DO NOT PURCHASE FROM SAMSUNG. THEY WILL NOT STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCT!

Summary: I have a Samsung LN52A850 and have had problems with the picture when you first turn it on. The right side of the screen would be blurry with double images rolling black spots. At first it would only take a few minutes and the problem would correct itself.
Summary: BUYER BEWARE OF SAMSUNG! Personally, I have had no luck with their products.. My BluRay/DVD player stopped working correctly after warranty expired - requiring either expensive repairs or replacement.
Great TV even after a year - can't say that about many things these days.

Summary: I purchased this TV back in 2008, and it still ceases to amaze me. Every time people come over and watch a Blu-ray movie, they are amazed and in wonderment. And in this day and age when technology changes so quickly, with 240hz and LED back lighting, I can still say that I am still in love with this...
