Summary: Have the same model in 60inch so I rarely watch this one, but the only reason I didn't give 5 stars in the "eco sensor" or whatever it's called. The function is supposed to adjust brightness of the TV depending on the light in the room. Problem is, if most of the light is coming from the TV, then it intermittently dim and lighten the picture responding to the light coming from the picture... Nice concept but in action it's lacking...
Summary: I was able to purchase this TV for just under $700 as part of a black Friday deal (2012) I'm pretty happy with the purchase but this TV won't win any awards. If you are expecting a mind blowing viewing experience this TV is not for you. If you want a 4/5 viewing experience for a bedroom at a reasonable price then this might be the one.
Summary: Pros: - looks good in the room, nice stand (similar to high end models, only black), very thin TV, great bright picture - "joystick" on the right back corner for power, volume, channel changes, etc. is very ingenious and useful (I also have a UN55D8000 and I wish it had this joystick feature)...you can use this joystick in lieu of the remote (e.g. if it isn't handy) - i paid 700 and think this was a relatively fair price for a basic 120Hz LED TV...no apps, no 3D..
Summary: I got this TV over black Friday weekend at a great price. Picture is beautiful, sharp, and bright. The blacks are a good deep black. Feels like live and immersive. Only con is that it doesn't handle fast action very well. I get screen artifacts and flickering when the action moves too fast. But this is the lowest end model in the ES series with the slowest refresh rate. So you get what you pay for. Otherwise highly recommended.
Great TV! Hits SWEET SPOT for the price and features. Amazing bargain!!

Summary: After doing much research on which LCD to buy and what features I was looking for, I found that Samsung's ES6003 on Amazon fell right into a sweet spot category. It is the sister model of the ES6100, but like many other reviewers have noted, if you're looking to pay for a high-quality LCD big screen TV without all the extraneous features like the SMART TV and 3D while having the ultra slim design, all at a great price, this TV is for you!
