Summary: After 7 months of use i thought it's time for me to share a few things about this TV. I did a lot of research and Amazon probably had cheapest price when i bought it. I was very skeptical about letting anyone handle my TV but now i am fan of Amazon service. TV was delivered in excellent condition and on time. LED TVs have the best picture quality and this TV delivers. There is nothing which beats this TVs quality (at price ~1000) when watching movies and TV shows.
Summary: I recently received this TV and I am very impressed with it. The picture is excellent and the design of the set itself is just remarkable. It's extremely thin and light (so much so that I easily mounted it to the wall by myself). The menu structure has been redone as compared to older Samsung TVs and is very intuitive and easy to use.
Summary: The picture quality is fantastic, Love that I can watch my videos from my computer directory to the TV's build in media player. One this is that, I would love to see a Amazon TV app for the SmartTV, so I can stream Amazon Movie's directly to the TV.
Summary: I like everything about this TV. When we started watching 720p and 1080p media the first thing we notices was how ridiculously clear everything was. Most shows were like looking through a window. Everything is great. However, I have a few issues with it. 1. For some reason the sound won't go through the TV to the reciever in anything but Dolby Pro Logic II (I'm using Optical out and the signal is coming from an XBox 360 over HDMI). I HATE ProLogic. DTS is far superior.
Pros: Design of TV makes it look high-end for less the price of D7000. Excellent image quality. Off-angle viewing is not as bad as reported. Internet-ready. 3D capable. It's not that pricey, but do your research.
Cons: The Smart Hub is cluttered. Netflix app seems to flicker streamed movies alot when viewing. No built-in wifi. TV sound is adequate but not great. Customer service (Live Chat) is less informed with newer products. I called several times after opening my TV
Summary: I had read a press release that Samsung would be including 2 free pairs of 3D glasses with all of their 3D enabled TVs purchased after April 24, 2011. So I was disappointed when I ordered this TV from Amazon, but the free glasses did not come with the set. When I wrote to Samsung customer service, they told me to take the issue up with Amazon, even though I had a feeling it was more Samsung's fault than Amazon's.
Summary: Very nice TV. Apps are pretty much useless to me since my PS3 has the apps I need. The picture is beautiful although somewhat dark at times. The 3D works ok, for 3D. No free glasses for me. Had to pay $50 ea for a couple of them. The set itself is beautiful but the HDMI inputs are kind of a tight fit, but ok. It will be a great buy, as long as it lasts more than a couple years.
Samsung 3D glasses promotion for this set not honored by some vendors.

Summary: FYI... "April 6, 2011 Samsung Press Release: Samsung will provide two pairs of 3D active glasses for its entire 3D TV lineup at no additional cost with the purchase of any Samsung 3D LED TV or 3D Plasmas TV" However, some vendors, such as Best Buy, are not honoring the offer on this 2011 TV (and some others)
