    This 52' LCD was given to me as a Christmas gift by my girlfriend. I am very suprised how well the response time and how smooth the picture relays. I was stuck on getting plasma had I been the one purchasing. But now I am a fellow LCD enthusiast. Great bang for your buck! The picture in this tv is AMAZING!

    There is a lot of ghosting with this unit. The sound quality isn't that great. I've attempted to adjust the picture to no avail. This unit is not samsung's best quality. This was a trade on a previous unit (a DLP Projection unit) of which they no longer produce. This unit come's no where close to the DLP unit I previously owned.

    Wow, Amazing TV for the price

    By 

    from Near Philadelphia, PA

    Comments about Samsung 52" Black Flat Panel Series 5 LCD HDTV:

    It is simple. If you are looking for a 52" set with an amazing picture, at a reasonable price, that comes in an attractive package, this is the one to buy. Don't worry about the lack of 120/240hz operating modes. We see no motion problems with this model. The picture quality is just stunning. If I had any complaint, it is that the included remote feels a bit flimsy. A minor thing though given that many people will end up using a Universal remote of some sort.

    Dont believe the bad reviews...

    By 

    from Sacramento, California

    Comments about Samsung 52" Black Flat Panel Series 5 LCD HDTV:

    My Sony DLP 55" took a dump. I did hours and hours of research on almost every television available. Comparing cost, features, performance, looks and overall reliability, my Samsung made top of the list. After about an hour of set up, I thumbed through all my HD channels. The picture quality and clarity are stunning. Then a BluRay dvd. OMG....crisp lines, beautiful colors from darks to brights. As far as soound goes, the stock speakers are fine for everyday watching. If you can afford to have a nice television from Samsung, should be able to afford a nice home theater sound system to go with it! Thanks Samsung for making ME a very happt customer!!

      Comments about Samsung 52" Black Flat Panel Series 5 LCD HDTV:

      This TV replaced a 6.5 year old Toshiba HD Flat Screen Tube TV in our family room and I couldn't be happier. I researched TV's quite extensively for some time before deciding on this one. I always thought Samsung had/has the best picture out of any TV I have ever seen. This TV is only a 60hz, but I do not notice any difference over 120hz. I've watched football and racing and other fast action shows, and the picture is just outstanding! Granted not all shows are going to look as good as others on this TV or any HD TV for that matter, but that's because they are't all HD. I would definitely recommend this TV to others, as well as recommending ABT Electronics, which I actually already have. [...] I will definitely be purchasing more products from them in the future!!
