Summary: Picture was FANTASTIC- super crisp and clear. The speakers are horrible and no audio output jacks. So after 2.5 years the tv has died and just showing a black screen...of course it's out of warranty. I had a few friends with this tv, and same issue. NEVER had quality problems with Sony TVs.
Five stars for the price - Perfect "dumb" TV for your smart setup!

Summary: A lot of other reviews go into deep detail, so I'll keep this short. I bought this TV because it was simple: no "smart" features that age poorly and are forced upon you a few years from now. The other big part was that the TV is properly back-lit; it's not edge-lit like the super thin TVs of today.

Summary: Yeah. Don't buy this. Goggle: Samsung black screen but sound. I hate to go to the extreme, but with a Note II and a Samsung TV that lost its picture after just four months, I'm not buying another Samsung product.
Summary: I just got this set and realized that there are no audio outputs. ....you are basically stuck with the built-in speakers...However after searching the net I discovered that an AV receiver (home theater), should be the center of the whole system.
Summary: We purchased this TV online because we got an awesome deal under $900 dollars and free shipping. The picture quality of this model TV is excellent and what we were looking for in a 60inch screen.
Summary: *****W A R N I N G***** Do not buy SAMSUNG Televisions!!! Maybe $2,500.00 - $3,000.00 is not a lot of money for some folks to spend on a television, but it is to me. This is money I'll never get back, nor derive true enjoyment, nor value from due to the DEFECTIVE SAMSUNG product that I purchased.
