Awesome TV - Get it without the DLNA / Internet if possible

Raj, Amazon
2 May 2010
  • Summary: The good: 1. Amazing picture quality 2. Bright color great contrast...can't even tell it's on 3. Excellent remote 4. Lots of I/O ports to connect stuff 5. Very thin...looks like a picture frame on the wall (mounted it myself with Samsung slim mount) The not so good: 1. The included DLNA software is pretty basic and not worth it. Recommend using PlayOn or something compatible though I'm not sure what all is compatible. I use it with PlayOn 2.

Update 11/2011 - Stunning picture most of the time.

Scott F., Amazon
30 March 2010
  • Summary: November, 2011 update: I lowered my rating from 4 stars to 2 stars because my set has developed a dark smudgy area on the left half of the screen. For a while I noticed these blemishes while watching the news and I thought the screen or news anchors were dirty. After cleaning it properly, it did not resolve the problem. I found that when I display a dark grey solid background (via a PC) I can see the distortion in its entirety. ** This is NOT the clouding issue.

Somewhat disappointed in Samsung, but still...

Matthew D. Johnson "tech junkie", Amazon
7 March 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this TV, partly against my better judgment, in the middle of February, 2010. I read many reviews by other consumers complaining of a "spotlighting" effect produced by the LED edge-lighting that replaces the fluorescent-style backlighting of older model LCDs. Upon receiving my TV, I was disappointed to see that the concerns others voiced were not exaggerated.

Superb picture and set

Guillaume Normand, Amazon
9 February 2010
  • Summary: I have had this set since October 2009 and I have not been disappointed in any way. In September I had concerns about some of the reviews complaining about the "white" edges/corners on dark scenes. Well these are rare and very faint. But once you perform a firmware update they no longer show up.

Wanted to love it. Ended up hating it.

Joel E. Sartoris, Amazon
11 January 2010
  • Summary: Let me begin this review by stating that Amazon.com has been VERY good about helping me with my problem. Their return policy and customer service are among the best in the industry. NOW: Samsung is a different story. I bought this television based on the specs, the online reviews and Samsung's own website. The screen size and the price point seemed great for us. When it arrived, it was even more beautiful in person. Sadly, the picture quality was awful.

The best TV ever!

Valcris29 "Valcris", Amazon
4 January 2010
  • Summary: This is the best TV I ever seen! Definitely, Samsung is making history with this TV. The picture quality and the slim design deserve one A+. I have not used the internet connections yet, but overall this is a TV that should be added to anyone list. A minor negative comment is the lack of more analogical ports connections and the tight space to connect the cables, when using the Samsung wall mounting (WMN1000B), but this is nothing compared to the picture quality...
