Summary: Just purchased this TV. We have an older Samsung 1080p plasma 42" which has a great picture, but we wanted to look at LED for the family room and felt it would pay to get a smart tv instead of adding a content box like apple tv or roku. WHat sold us was that this tv has DTS sound built in. DTS is the future. It runs rings around dolby and srs, but very few audio products incorporate it into their product in order to reduce costs. In our case it was a deciding factor.
Summary: This Samsung is absolutely grand. It is sleek, the design is awesome, and picture quality s crystal clear. Design: The design is amazing on this TV. It is nice looking, and the red design on the outside panel is a nice touch, although you won't be paying much attention to it. It's nice to know that Samsung was focused on the overall package, not just the quality of the picture. Also, it is very slim and light weight, making it easy enough to set up.
Summary: Samsung UN40C5000 40-Inch 1080p 60 Hz LED HDTV (Black) We ordered this Samsung UN40C5000 as replacement for a UN40C6300 that had a short life of about an hour. After almost two months we do enjoy the later one with all it's features and picture quality,but like the other LCD tv it is better viewed from straight direct line and would best positioned hanging up on a wall because at any angle the picture fade to white and not as sharp.
Summary: Times have changed! My tv was delivered by ups and i was able to carry a tv no problem onto the table. Um... wow! not too long ago there was no way you could. I have a big plasma tv in the bedroom and wanted to change my old old tv in living room. I decided i wanted a smaller tv there so it is not all about a tv. Something i can watch from the kitchen while i cook. Prices where higher then i thought for tv's now a days and i wanted to get a good picture.
Summary: We purchased this TV as soon as the 2010 models were available. The Amazon purchasing experience was what we have come to expect: easy, with delivery as expected. We had problems out of the box that were not related to the TV itself, but rather related to our cable provider, Brighthouse Networks. In attempting to resolve the issue, I first called Samsung on about March 11, 2010.
Summary: WOW!!!! My first LED-LCD TV and love it. I had Sony TV for many years. I can't afford expensive Sony TV, this Samsung brand is great! At first it was confusing to hook up gaming, video phone, and DVD, due to yellow plug for video (didn't know where to plug in). Had to use the A/V box, someday I'm gonna get HDMI cable. Can't wait to try out the High Def service!!! Great Christmas and Birthday gifts to me! Very fast shipping!!!!
Summary: The 5000 series LED backlit LCD Samsung was was I wanted. In Walmart it captured my attention, I just waited until I could find it at a lower price. I think it has a pretty good black level and probably shadow detail. It is very light weight and easy to move. It has a lot of connections and a headphone jack. The volumn level in the headphone jack does not seem to be ajustable and is a little loud for me. Now the off angle picture quality does fall off radically.
Summary: I've had the TV for a few weeks now and love the picture. Its crisp with the right amount of saturation and amazingly lit. However, I am not satisfied with the media player feature. It only sees a very limited type of video files (none from iTunes) and is not compatible with apple computers which I exclusively use.
Summary: This product is great so far. Excellent colors, super thin and great price. My only gripe for the less than satisfactory media player - when I try to play mp3 or media files that have any character other than a ASCII character, say Chinese character, the name of the songs/videos does not display properly but appear as squares.
