Excerpt: Before we bought this TV, we went through all the reviews we can find online. Reviews are pretty good. The fact is this IS a great TV. We upgraded from a old school TV, so this TV looks extra clear. The picture quality is great, very clean, very sharp. With HDTV source, you can even see pore of ppl's skin. Sound quality is good too, but we have external sound system, so it was not so obvious. I like the design of this TV.
Summary: I owned it for 2.5 months. the 2008 model that I have provide similar image quality at lower price. to set up the image requires science and the worst (independent of samsung) is dependable on equipment used to capture and broadcast the image. Does help me ? no. The internet due to ultra slow processor(I guess) is annoying and disappointing (shame on samsung). The corner lights, oh yeah! Does bother me - no!
