Summary: We got a Samsung 46 inch 1080p 120Hz LED/ HDTV in November of 2011. On September 28 2012 it worked beautifully, sound & picture perfect. On September 29th 2012 we turned it on to get a fuzzy screen that faded to total blackness except for a small tubular shaped gray splotch on the lower right hand corner of the screen. Beautiful sound but no picture. We tried all the obvious trouble shooting things like check the wiring and plugs but found nothing to correct.
Summary: I loved this TV for the four months it worked. The display looked great, the features worked well, and it played well with the Samsung home theater system we bought. Unfortunately, while watching a movie one night, the LCD panel apparently went bad and started "ghosting" all the images.
Summary: First, the good: This TV has an excellent picture and acceptable sound. For TV viewing I find it to be great. If they hadn't been deceptive about the web capabilities of the TV, I would have given it 5 stars. Now for the bad: Samsung implies in the literature accompanying the TV that you can browse the web with the purchase of a USB wireless adapter. Do not buy it for web browsing! This TV will not browse the web.
Summary: First off, I have the 6003 version, which was the Black Friday special. I wanted to love this set as it is my first step up from a sanyo 30" widescreen CRT TV. After lots of research this set seemed like a good choice at a good price. I even could live with the light leakage problem (I Think) as I've fiddled with the settings enough to acceptably view DVDs. Imagine my surprise when a green line 2 pixels wide appears vertically on my screen! Yah!
Crappy smart hub and cheaply made remote.. Screens gorgeous

Summary: Very highly advertised samsung smarthub lags soo bad that I decided not to use it at all. Remote is made with delicate cheap plastic and lags really bad communicating with the tv and I have tried changing the remote as week. The only advantages are gorgeous screen and thin lightweight design.
Summary: Everything is wonderful, except the distracting 'flashlighting' effect (bleed-through of backlight at the 4 corners). After noticing it, I looked it up on line, and several people have complained about the issue. Probably more nerdy types, but I notice it during dark scenes and it is distracting. Samsung cutomer service was awful (communicating with mollusks couldn't be much harder).
Summary: I have had an excellent 46" Samsung LCD unit for several years and was impressed enough to purchase this LED model when the Amazon price dropped to $899, to replace an ailing CRT TV. The multiple input options was another important selling point. The 120Hz did help alleviate some motion anomalies. However, there were some deficits to this model: Light bleed at each corner. At each of the 4 corners, light shone out in an approximately 2" triangle.
Summary: I like everything about this TV other than the colors. I find them unrealistic, a bit 'cartoonish'. It helps a lot if you change the settings from 'Normal' to 'Natural', but still far from real 'natural'. Otherwise it's a fine TV, everything works well. I'm not sure I'd buy it again, probably not.
Summary: The picture on this tv is amazing. Color is great, image is vibrant and clear. Seriously, well-done Samsung. The problem is that the local dimming is over-active. When you view an image that's MOSTLY black but with something small on the screen - let's say the bumps on Adult Swim, or the intro to a movie where it just shows the title on a black screen - the tv detects the dark image and reduces the back-lighting.
