Good, not perfect

Summary: Samsung UN46D8000 46-Inch 1080p 240Hz 3D LED HDTV (Silver) After looking at a dozen reviews of this TV and other Smart TVs, I selected this model because of Samsung reputation. The TV has a thin bezel allowing for a larger screen in a smaller footprint as well as a swivel stand, which allows for better viewing options in my living room. Setup was extremely easy and I had successfully connected my Cable/DVR, stereo system and Wii in short order.
Summary: I am an average tv user, I will make it simple: TV is great for movies, regular HD viewing and 3d content. What is not good for is for gaming. It lags the crap out of the games. There is a game mode that you can set on this tv but overall it still lags and it reduces the quality of the game. All in all is a good buy, I got for 1300$ so it was fine for that cost. Like I said it has very beautiful picture, just don't get it if you plan on playing a lot of games on it.
Summary: I've had this TV for several weeks. I love it. The picture is wonderful. It definitely has a wow factor to it. I don't care for the picture in Standard mode so I changed it to Movie mode, I think it's called. It looks great. I've watched lots of HD content from my cable provider and Blu-ray movies. Everything is great. I had no trouble connecting it to my wireless router. I am able to surf the internet with it. The keyboard on the remote will take some getting used to.
Summary: The positives: - The design is simply awesome. - The image is generally stunning to behold with HD sources. - 3D works well (2d to 3d conversion is pretty much a gimmick though). - Includes (as of Feb. 2012) two pairs of rechargable 3D glasses. - Picture quality is excellent when the settings are tweaked. I used the CNet calibration guide for it, although I set my brightness to 12 and I prefer the dejudder at 3-4 as opposed to the zero they suggest.
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
Summary: I am quite happy with this TV, picture quality and sleekness is great.The 3D experience is amazing, scarcity of content is my only complaint, Blueray 3D DVDs cost $35+. There are sufficient HDMI and USB connectors, though I am still to figure out DLNA on the TV. Amazon dropped the price by another $100 after I bought it, so that was bit of a bummer.
Summary: A great tv and I would have given 5 stars except for two things the speakers in the tv are poor you will need to add external sound system. And the remote is a piece of crap. I can't believe for a pricy tv they didn't spend more time designing a better remote lucky I have direct tv so I use my iPad 2 as a remote.
Summary: I really had no interest in 3d when the active shutter glass implementation first came out. But this set really does make watching 3d content enjoyable for me for the first time. The picture quality is excellent when set right. I'll save for a full review at a later date. However, i will mention just one thing that I wish this setting had. That is audio delay.
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!
Summary: I ordered this TV set after reading many, many reviews... but I will admit that my preference was towards getting low power consumption, features, and a slim bezel. I probably should haev put 'picture quality' first. While this set has good picture quality, it is certainly not great. There are spots where you can see the LEDs are brighter around the edges, and some 'banding' or streaky-looking display on the LCD itself.
