Excellent product, high learning curve

Summary: Takes a lot of initial setup. The serious reviewers' tips on the Amazon.com product page helped a lot. Regular DVD playback shows wavering in semi-lighted or pan-shots, but HD programming is simply amazing to watch on this.
Excerpt: I've had the Samsung 46" LED (UN46B8000) for just over three months now and overall I'm quite happy. I've been really kicking the tires on it with several different picture settings, sound settings and DVD/Blu-Ray titles to be sure I'm happy with it and I have to say that I am. Here are some details on the three main areas of the TV (at least the ones that are most important to me): Picture quality: The picture is great and I've read many reviews over the last three...
Summary: Bought this about 5 weeks ago. The picture is out of this world and I have had no issues with it so far. The sound is awful, however. My next purchase is surround sound. I would recommend this TV to anyone, as long as they get external speakers to go with it.
Summary: I have read the reviews prior to purchasing and heard about the uneven backlighting and the auto dimming and the light corners... I looked at it on display at best buy and it looked great. To my disadvantage what was displaying at best buy was a very bright video. I am upgrading from a 42" HP Plasma tv from around 2006.
Summary: The first TV arrived with a concern with the LED screen. After contacting Amazon customer service and some time without a TV will received the second TV. Overall the is a visually beautiful tv and overall picture quality is great. The black colors are real black. Sound is fine but hoping in the future I'll get a sound system connected. Only issue so far is in the mute mode. We hear a scratching sound coming from the speakers. Not noticed during normal listening mode.
Summary: I was a bit leary of ordering something like this over the internet, but the experience was awesome. This is a great TV, but the sound quality is the only reason I don't give it 5 stars. There is absolutely no base - everything sounds "tinny". I will likely get a home theater system to complement the TV. I saw many other reviews that said the same thing... believe it. This is the best picture in the biz, don't let the low grades on sound keep you from buying it.
Summary: The picture quality is outstanding, but there is ghosting and a halo effect based on the factory settings. You have to play around with the 240HZ settings for a minute to get a good balance of picture quality and smoothness of picture. The only downside is that when dark scenes occur, the entire picture goes dark to get a true black. White writing looks grey when this occurs. The other downside is third party wall mounting.
Summary: Super TV, Excellent price, Quick Delivery with Setup (and the delivery/installer guys helped me move a 200 pound Sony HDTV to make room for it). The picture is everything I could hope for - I use it with a Samsung bluray and a Denon 7.1 home theater and DirecTV HDVR and I'm pleased.
Summary: Pro: Excellent picture which is easy to fine tune. Awkward, but complete menu, which is largely intuitive. Easy setup. Extremely thin. Stable mounted on supplied base Cons: Primary remote is complete, but strangely shaped. Secondary remote is largely useless. The TVs sound is adequete, but will not satisfy an audiophile. Overall, I am content with this TV. The picture is incredible.
