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.
Summary: I really expected more from a Samsung TV. With all my research this TV was everything needed except it was not a smart tv. 1080p 120h, and thename brand was a definate so I thought. I am posting this the day after I hooked the TV up. Picture is not crisp.
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.
