Summary: If you're not a gamer, this TV is excellent. It's got one of the most gorgeous displays of any TV currently on the market. If you ARE a gamer, avoid this TV like the plague. I'm big into first-person shooters and I couldn't adjust the TV settings to reduce the input lag enough to make my games playable. I did a lot of research and ended up getting a Panasonic plasma.
Summary: I gave this 4 stars because one of the 3d glasses that came with the TV did not work. I have to fax and sent and wait and wait for ever to get it resolved. Instead they have just sent me a new pair so I could send the broken one back I have to sent all kinds of proof. TV was great but to get things resolve from Samsung sux.
Summary: This TV w/ true refresh rate of 240 looks very sharp. The included Internet apps are better than average, and one would definitely love the 4 HDMI connections. One would need a bigger living room to fully take advantage of the large size. One main drawback is the black level is still not that good compared with that of Plasma TVs.
Great TV, settings need to be done right for best performance

Summary: First off my TV was shipped by CEVA, they came early in the time window and the two guys were great. I did not tip only because I had them open the box and plug it in to check for function and bleeding; took 3 minutes. I used the TV settings found online from CNET and they made all the difference.
Summary: This Samsung is awesome!!! I was very excited when i purchased this tv about two months ago. I was replacing and old Pioneer elite projection tv. In my opinion the picture is second to none. (I have three other Samsung HD tv's that I have purchased over the last 3 years and somehow the continue to improve the picture quality.) The setup was very easy and only took about 15 minutes. I could not have made a better choice for ease of use and picture quality.
Summary: I had this tv for a month now. So far so good, the TV in it's intial setup needed a little tweaking, so I went on cnet.com and got the best settings for this Tv and now it's awesome. The usb slots are great, the wifi keeps connected. it truly has the right amount of hdmi connecters for cable box, ps3 ,and my wd live box and my Blue-ray player. The picture is bright, crisp and just plain awsome. The speakers are small but it's does an okay job.
Summary: Fast shipping and delivery by Amazon. Screen uniformity is not great but doesn't bother me. Movies look great. 3D works fine. Netflix streaming is ok. Netflix through PS3 is much better. A little overpriced but a great TV set.

Summary: Excellent TV. As someone who has a couple of 120mhz Samsung LCD TVs, the 240mhz makes a noticeable difference. This is a SMART TV and has an IOS app which can be used to control the TV. I also have a Samsung Blu-ray player which can be managed by the remote. I like this app so much that it's my primary remote for the TV and Blu-Ray. The only drawback is if the iphone goes to sleep it loses its connection to the TV.
Summary: My search for a new modern age tv began about 2 months before xmas. I went to several different stores and did timely extensive research all over including online, reading as many reviews and spec details as I could for all the potential sets I was interested in in the hopes of landing a perfect TV at a good value and price. I wanted a new bedroom TV and my budget was $500-$1100.
