Video Excellent - Built-In Audio Unacceptable

Summary: Internet functionality and video are excellent. The built-in audio is poor. The speakers cannot handle any amount of bass very well. In fact, low mid-range to bass causes the speakers to break up sufficiently to make me think that I had a pair of blown speakers. The sound quality, in the presence of a fair amount of bass, is horrendous. I will have to route the sound through my stereo system when watching movies. The sound from the digital output is fine.
Summary: Overall, I am satisfied with this TV. It is all digital which renders my present DVD and amplifier obsolete for operating with this TV. NO analog outputs/inputs are provided. The sound needs an auxiliary system but I expected that situation. I do not have 3D capability yet, so I reserve judgememt on that feature. I would recommend the TV to other perspective buyers.
Summary: But you need to buy a key board from Samsung ($100) to work on the internet. For Face Book or You Tube, You can not use the keyboard. You can only use the remote for typing. It does have Angry Bird Toon weekly.
Summary: I've had the 50.7" model of the Samsung PN51E550 for about a week and a half now and I'm very pleased with how it has performed. When reading my pros and cons below, keep in mind that the reason for my huge list of Cons is not because this is a bad TV; far from it, in fact. I simply am trying to adequately spell out any and all issues future users might encounter. Pros: Fantastic overall picture. Great black levels, as advertised. 3D is great.
Summary: Have had this TV for about a month and am enjoying it greatly. When first received, I noticed the "blink" many other reviewers noted, especially when in the Dynamic mode, but after doing the software update, it no longer is a problem. Also, although I didn't buy it for the 3D, we have had a few good times looking at some features with the so-called "cheap" glasses that come with it on Direct TV (which I don't recommend) I have also used the Pandora app with great...
Summary: Shipping - The TV was delivered through Pilot. It came on time and the delivery guy was courteous. He opened the box and removed the TV and powered it on to make sure it was working just as Amazon described in their service. No complaints there. Initial Impressions (After 1st week) - Initial setup was simple. There's a setup guide that will take you 5 or 10 minutes to set up date, time, wifi info, etc. Picture quality out of the box was good.
Summary: This tv is fantastic, really great clear pictures, 3D works perfectly. Has quite a few good apps like, netflix and all the bbc iplayer etc all that work very well on the tv Only downside was that i had to get a replacement the day it arrived because it was delivered with a cracked screen, very dissapointing when ive had the same problem again with the newer model i just ordered not happy, its not really a good idea to buy items like these online i would suggest if you...
