AVOID! Dies after 23 months, poor quality control

Summary: We have had this 'top of the line' LED 1080p 3D tv for 23 months. One year and 11 months. It is dead now. It just stopped working. It turns on, and shows a picture and shuts down in 5 seconds. I have followed the troubleshooting procedures to where it says contact a authorized service repair center. For about $450 dollars we can have a replacement 'main board' put in the tv.
Summary: We purchased the Samsung UN46D8000 46" LED HDTV in January 2012. The picture is incredible in HD and 3D viewing. After approximately six to seven months after purchase, the QWERTY side of the remote stopped pairing with the TV. We called Samsung and they said it was the remote. They sent a replacement remote (placing a $54 hold on my charge card for return of the remote, which I still have not received a shipping label); however, we still had the same pairing problem...
Summary: I was hesitating before buying this TV because of it's price. But, after purchasing I think I took a wise decision. I really like this TV. The colors are natural, good contrast and excellent wide angle viewing. I didn't mount it on wall and using a stand. It looks great on stand because of its design. The only bad thing about this TV is that the smart apps takes a while to load. But, I think that is a software issue and samsung will release an update very soon.
Pros: 1) Great picture in blu-ray, games, streaming, and 'all share' 2) Excellent dark scenes 3) Smart hub has many options to appeal to anyone 4) Menu is self explaining
Cons: 1)Both the menu and smart hub are cluttered and can be distracting at first 2)While sitting from the left and right of the TV you will notice light from the corners of the screen and might be distracting for some 3)Sound sucks but other TVs will too
For the price I got it for, it was an excellent product!

Summary: Only have had this for a couple of months, but so far so great! That might change during the course of time and I'll update accordingly. This review is not very technical it's just a layman's average Joe-consumer perspective. I was waiting for a handful of the high-end models to drop below $2000 before considering purchasing them and once they did I went on doing my comparison.
Summary: When a power surge finally killed off our prior television, I was not dismayed, as I had been studying the LED models for a couple of years. I had done quite a bit of research about a year ago when I needed a new monitor, and was impressed by the quality and expertise of Samsung. Since a purchase was finally emminent, I went into overdrive to find the perfect set, since we tend to keep these kind of things until they die, as opposed to frequent upgrades regardless of...
Great 3D LCD TV, hugely adjustable but time-consuming to adjust

Summary: There's a lot to say about this TV, and I'm going to say it all. Short version: great 3D LCD TV, among the best on the market, if you're willing to deal with the hassles of adjusting it; and those hassles are somewhere between minor and major. Now, either skip the rest of this review, or read on!
Pros: Very good picture quality and great 3D view.
Cons: The Web Browser is none sense...extremely slow. Better off with a laptop or any other device to surf the internet. The remote control/keyboard is clumsy and useless. The TV menu is another nightmare making the use of the features a puzzle.
