Good Picture/Weak Speakers

Summary: Just purchased this product to replace a Vizio 22" 720p which had horribly slow response times when using Time Warner's guide. The response time problem seems to be resolved (due to better electronics in the Samsung I assume) and the picture quality is quite good. However, where one problem is solved another is created: the speakers are unbelievably weak.
Summary: This Samsung 22-inch TV needs a fairly easy assembly of the TV and its base. My husband and I did it, but the connection between the base and the body of the TV was unstable and spindly.It had to be returned by UPS.
Summary: It hooked up easy and is very lightweight. The articulating arm that was reccomended fit perfect and in a matter of minutes I had it hung on the wall and working. Now for the bad part... the sound quality sucks .... my ipad has better sound than this...I expected a little more. It phases in and out on the sound so not sure what is going on there. Was going to buy a Vizio but decided not to because of their sound ratings. This one is just as bad.
Summary: It is a great looking item. Picture quality is fine. However, there is a fading of the picture in the lower left hand corner of the screen that detracts from the quality that I am working with Samsung to get rid of. Sound quality is acceptable but not superior.
Summary: I've only had this TV for three days and the poor sound quality is driving me crazy! No matter what setting it's on (movie, music, clear voice, etc) it sounds horrible (like a harsh AM radio)! There is no bass whatsoever, the background noise is more pronounced than the dialog (even when the setting that enhances the dialog is on), and every "s" sounds scratchy, even when you turn the high frequencies all the way down with the useless equalizer.
Summary: Purchased this TV to replace a Samsung T260HD that has been great as a "hybrid" monitor. This TV was going to be used for 50/50 computer monitor & PS3 gaming for a child's room. Unfortunately it's come time to replace the T260HD due to a loose rear HDMI connector and just looking outdated compared to new models. There are not to many QUALITY choices on 1080P tv's 26" or smaller so I gave this 22" a shot. First the TV aesthetics look great!
