Santa brought this for Christmas. He didn't tell me everything I had for my 27 yo tv would not work with the new one. So after cutting the legs on a sofa table, getting a new Dish dish/HD box, a Blu-ray, a new VVHS/DVD player and a few 25' expensive cables we were up & running.

Please note that this is our first HD tv and that we watch it in an overhead low light great-room from a distance of 18' from our eyes to the screen. In this environment this tv is wonderful!

None of the negative tv issues apply. It does not dominate the room, higher resolution would be a waste at 18', it has all the brightness we need plus some to go during the day, it can be comfortably viewed from any angle and we play the sound for movies through 600w @ stereo that fills the room with sound. The normal speakers are fine for everything else. I don't believe we could be more pleased if we had spent 20 G's more. Besides we needed a lot of the savings to upgrade the rest of the stuff.

3D? You have not seen Avatar until you have seen it on this tv in 3D. Santa said this tv cost less than our 1985 26". Best deal out there!

                  This is my first HDTV. Love it! I've had it for only 2 weeks, and haven't even used the 3D yet. I also have a blu ray player, which has been fun to fool around with. I truly adore watching TV on this set. I hope I feel the same way about it in a few years!

                        My family & I bought this TV to replace and upgrade our old LCD TV that was blacking out on us. We researched & compared other brands but they didn't compare to the quality, features and reputation SAMSUNG offers. We are very HAPPY with the choice we made and we got this unit at a great price too. If you are looking for a new TV; you can't go wrong with this SAMSUNG unit.

                          This is a great big screen television for very little money. The picture is excellent. But do not purchase it if you need a lot of hookups in the back of tv for different things like blu-ray, etc. there is only 1 hook-up and I have to move between 2 machines I have when I want to change. Otherwise, great tv for the price. enjoy watching it.

                          Since this TV doesn't come with wifi, I bought the Samsung 3D bluray player to go with it. I can use all the apps thru the bluray player. There is some glare, but in a darker room it's fine. The black's are super dark and I cannot tell that this is a 720p. The sharpness and contrast are fantastic. For the price nothing else comes close to this winner!
