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.
Summary: The picture quality of the tv amazing, but there are black patches on each corner of the tv. This is not specific to my set. Everyone who has gotten a Samsung LED-series television has been noticing the same problem.
Great PQ on full screen scenes, and bright color values.. terrible in dark scenes or letterbox

Summary: Purchased this set 2 weeks ago, after haggling down BestBuy a few hundred more off their sale price. TV was wall mounted and it looked incredible. Samsung has outdone themselves on the craftsmanship of this set. It is a stunning work of art.
Summary: I bought this TV because the overall picture quality is good and it's unbelievably thin. However, there are some inherent problems with the set which are driving me nuts. The backlight is extremely uneven at the corners.
Summary: I was able to view this TV this afternoon and I got to tell you; Wait! Don't buy this TV until you have viewed it in a darkroom. It doesn't have to be totally dark, but dark none the less. Make sure you look to the corners of the TV set.
