Great picture and features

Summary: Have had this set for a couple of years now. It has plenty of inputs including a VGA input and I use almost every one of them. The only issue I have with it - and have found with almost every Samsung TV I have now tested - is that when connecting my MacBook Pro or my PC with an HDMI 2GB video card over HDMI, the picture is not so good. They both look great over VGA though.
Summary: I saw this model in several "Big Box" stores in MD., fortunate enough to buy on line for much less.....picture quality, remote functions, design...all pros, no cons at all....I believe you'd love it too.....
Summary: i would definatly recommend this tv to anyone looking for a quality tv at a good price. i purchased this tv about 2 months ago and it has been performing well. pros- definatly looks great. lots of inputs...and digital optical audio out for my z-5500 ss system. and price cons- sound. the speakers on the tv do not really put out too well. i have had the volume almost maxxed. it was loud but it did not sound clear. if you are going to spend $1200, why not $200 on audio???
Summary: Very impressed with the resolution and color on my new tv! I especially like the fact that there are plenty of ports for different hardware hook-ups and the pre-set screen features make it easy to find the best picture for what you are watching quickly.
Summary: Ordered from Amazon Feb. 2010 Great price, good picture, good delivery time. After about two weeks of use the picture now blinks off and on after the T.V. has been on for about an hour. Picture is on for about 3 sec. then goes off for a second. The audio never goes away just the picture. It doesn't matter which input source I use, sat., over air ant., or DVD player. Amazon will take back for full refund or exchange for another model.
Summary: I did a lot of shopping around before I bought this TV. Amazon.com had the very best price I could find, even including sales prices at other local stores. The shipping was fast and they brought the TV in and put it where we wanted it, so that was very convenient. I was a little nervous about the "red touch of color" but it really isn't noticeable at all. That might be a positive or negative thing, depending on who is buying it. The picture is crystal clear.
Summary: I am very happy with this television...in the beginning I had a problem with the color, but quickly learned how to make it right. Once we connected the HDMI cable the picture was beautiful and once we connected the surrond sound it was amazing. Never thought I would be able to afford an LCD television at this size for this price. Make sure you get the warranty it will be worth it.
Summary: I had the 46" Samsung 1080p set and this one is better. I love it. The only problem I see is that I have to really turn up the volume when I'm playing a movie since I don't have a speaker system.
