Summary: This was a TV to replace an older but still working plasma. This new Samsung has a very clear picture even in non-HD stations and has been very satisfactory so far. I just wish it has more HDMI ports as I do not like using coaxial cables. Other than that, I am completely satisfied and would definitely recommend it to anyone else.
Summary: Shipping: Enhanced shipping - two people delivered it up to my 3rd floor apartment, I signed for it, and they left. They didn't offer to unpack it for me or remove the box (I would have declined the offer anyway). TV Pros: After I followed some of the suggested setting adjustments from previous reviewers, the picture is awesome (colors are good and sharp [I upgraded from a standard TV, so I might not be the expert on picture]).
Summary: Pretty spectacular TV. Good value for the price as well. However, I accidentally smacked the corner of the screen when i was swinging a bag off of my shoulder. The screen cracked of course (I didn't think I hit it THAT hard) and now I learn that the square trade warranty does NOT cover accidental coverage.
Summary: Where to begin? Well, I got this TV during the black Friday sale. Price was $699 and with my Prime Membership, shipping was fast and free. The TV weighs about 25 lbs so shipping, set up and moving have all been easy with this TV. Samsung really did a great job with this one in terms of weight vs picture quality. But let's get down to the good stuff. The picture quality is superb. It's like night and day over my aged LG LCD TV.
Summary: I have the 55" version of this 3DTV. Video is wonderful. It's like looking through glass. But the video is not quite so good out of the box. So I would suggest tinkering with all settings. - There is the Picture category of options, but then there are other video-related options in the System category of options. It seems like the key things to adjust is to turn Eco-Mode off and never turn on the Motion Lighting.
Factory settings look terrible. Looks good after custom adjustment.

Summary: We use this TV for 3 different content sources: 1. SD A/V from a Comcast cable box. 2. HD QAM-in-the-clear for local channels. Update 9/20/13 NOT CURRENTLY RECEIVING THESE! 3. PS3 via HDMI for games, Netflix, DVD and Blu Ray I was really worried when we first fired this set up. The SD A/V looked terrible, and the HD local channels didn't look a whole lot better. People's faces were washed out, flat and blurry.
