Summary: This Samsung TV seemed very bright when I first hooked it up to replace a smaller plasma TV. Once I adjusted the picture settings (which was very easy), the picture was great for everything. Football and hockey games are terrific with this TV, with no blurring. The TV controls are user friendly, too.
Pros: All the connections options I could ever need, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Great Picture Quality, LED-backlit, Reduced Glare
"I have only one word for this TV dissappointed period"
5 August 2013
Pros: Bright movies looked great. Watched Skyfall and it was incredible. The sound is good. The 3D is very impressive. A lot of extra features, many that I would never use.
Cons: This TV doesn't handle greys well at all. Grey to lighter-dark scenes show a lot of flashlighting and DSE. I dropped the contrast, brightness, and backlight (which just kills the picture depth) and the there still was noticeable streaking.
