Summary: Well I dont often make "big ticket" purchases, so when I AM going to shell out a few hundred dollars, I try to do the required research and comparison shopping before making a decision. I started off with just a couple of basic requirements in my mind; I wanted something small and thin enough to fit in my small room, but something that had a refresh rate highter than 60Hz for gaming, displayed in 1080p.
Summary: Overall, its a decent television for the money. Id probably recommend spending a few more dollars and getting a traditional LCD Samsung. Pros: -good viewing angles -cheap -really thin -good brightness Cons: -pretty bad contrast -darks and shadows frequently wash out
Summary: Once you configure the image settings properly for the room you'll be using it in, you'll find that this TV is a great purchase. The only disappointment is perhaps the sound quality, which I found lacking in richness and depth.
Summary: The Good: I am pretty confident that this TV has the best quality to price ratio I could have found. The picture is amazing: great contrast, deep blacks (for an LED), and colors that really pop. The design is simple, the screen super thin, the settings easy to control. It has no features to speak of, but I honestly just wanted an amazing picture and I don't care so much about the extras, especially for under $500.
