Summary: I bought this TV at Sears in 2011. Someone broke into my house and stole it in 2012. I went back to the store to replace it with my insurance money and they were no longer being made. So I bought the Samsung similar to this one (only it was brand new) and immediately I was angry. Samsung replaced this model with a much sleeker looking model but the image on the screen was not as clear or bright as the old one, the features were annoying (such as beeping every time you...
Pros: + Picture quality is excellent + This t.v. looks great in the living room + Excellent Sound quality (for a t.v.) + Smart Hub has a lot of potential + T.V. settings menus are well laid out and easy to use
Cons: - I have noticed some flashlighting in the bottom left corner of the screen
Summary: I purchased both the 46" and 55" and each have amazing picture quality as others have attested to. I returned the 46" and kept the 55" because of the ridiculous deal on Amazon and the class size fits much better in my living room. Right out of the box the picture quality is quite amazing, but it can be calibrated (as others have also mentioned) for an even better viewing experience when watching different shows. All in all, a great buy for a fantastic TV.
Summary: UPDATE TIME - It's 10 months later and I couldn't be happier. This TV turned out to be one of the best investments I have ever made. I love it... This is an EXCELLENT television. I am a bit of a tech head, though not crazy, and my primary objective is an excellent picture. This TV has an outstanding picture and the slim design is by far the nicest looking out there(nothing close in this price range). I was incredibly impressed with the quality of the 3D.
Summary: My Wife and I purchased this TV on Cyber Monday through Amazon's daily deals, and we're more than satisfied with our purchase! Astounded is more like it! We were able to pick out the time for delivery (two hour windows - which in itself is fantastic these days) and the delivery man arrived a few minutes prior to the beginning of the time slot. The delivery man was exceptionally polite and helpful and the box was undamaged. Kudos to you delivery man!
Summary: I purchased this TV a month ago and I am still in awe at the quality of the picture. When I purchased it, my intention was just to use it to watch some 3D movies; but is has become our primary TV because of the fantastic picture and other features. It is connected to a high quality surround system that provides a wonderful theater experience, and a HD smart blu-ray, that brings smart TV features like FaceBook, YouTube and other social net works to another level.
Summary: Purchased this TV after I returned the Sharp Aquos 830 52" and noticed a HUGE difference. Picture quality is amazing, style is great, and the Samsung Apps seem reasonable. I haven't used the 3D option and never really planned on using it. Just wanted a decent TV, and 3D happened to be included. The only complaint I have is with the PIP function. It only allows the cable or over-the-air connections as the other PIP input.
