Summary: I loved having a big screen tv. It is like seeing things for the 1st time in a whole new light. We had problems with the setup and Samsung CSR gave up on us and someone else was suppose to call and didn't. So we called Dish TV and they helped us out so we finally had a picture. I think at times the picture isn't great but it's better than what we had in our old tv.
Summary: I already owned a Samsung, but needed an inexpensive 50" 1080 for my basement...I was scouring for a deal...I first bought an Emerson - which the screen died on a week later....I swapped it for a Sanyo - which had blown out speakers straight out of the box...then, I found this on clearance at a Walmart about 30 miles from my house - I ordered it online site to store. The transaction was seamless and product is great thus far!
