Summary: Great picture quality, with deep blacks and plenty of detail in shadows. Blooming was minimal, and both uniformity and viewing angle were very good. The Gorilla Glass front adds both toughness and good looks. Excellent choice and great quality.
Summary: Bought this tv about a month ago, unfortunatly not from Amazon because they had it $500 more than anybody else at the time. Anywho, have not upgrade blu ray, can only speak on 2D. Gorilla Glass is wonderful makes tv light for its size and gets rid of glare which only helps the picture.

Summary: I got the hx850 after first purchasing a samsung es6100. I was used to a 5 year old sony xbr lcd tv, so i had thought that whatever new set i bought would exceed the picture of my old set. Not so-the samsung was a big step down in both picture and build quality.
