    One of the good Samsung TV but keep in mind there is the best.
    Good quality but in my opinion 2011 models had a little better quality. I have also model UN4600 and picture quality is better on this model. I do not know why but this is a fact. Also, remote always gives annoying beeping sound every time I press buttons. I contacted the Samsung, they could not deactivate this beeping. Most important question is how long this TV will last? And of course correct revew can be made after 5-6 years using this TV. And finally, Price is too high. Any Tv HD or not HD should not be more than $500. Good luck.

    I bought my first HDTV and first Samsung four years ago and it was brilliant. It was a mid range model but the picture quality was pretty much flawless -- so much so that it was a bit disconcerting at first. Unfortunately, the screen got damaged so I had to replace it. The original model I bought was obsolete and after a fair amount of research, I settled on this one. I did read some cautions about the picture quality in product reviews, but the matte screen was a must for me (and very hard to find!),I wanted to stick with Samsung and user reviews were overwhelmingly positive. I also figured four years later, the technology must be at a level where the problems I read about with uniformity and artifacts would probably be rather minor. I'm not an expert or hugely picky. I just want to watch without being distracted.

    Well, unfortunately, I find the picture flaws on this television fairly distracting. Within the same movie or TV show, you'll have a beautiful picture, then the next scene there will be spots of blotchiness, particularly on darker colors, or an overall graininess or, the worst, really annoying banding on gradients. It's like looking at a photo of a sunset on a 256 color monitor (for those who remember the old days of Windows computers). For a Samsung, I find these flaws very surprising--unacceptable, really. I've tried all sorts of settings with minor improvements.

    Everything else about the TV is great, esp. the sound, which is why I would ultimately recommend this but if your main criterion is superior and CONSISTENT picture quality, this model, sadly, doesn't deliver.

    I use this TV for everything. From TV viewing to movies to computer work. Awesome picture and sound I just have next to nothing bad to say. The 60hz versus 120hz is still confusing to me since my screens including the computer only say 60hz.My computer won't even recognize the TV can do a 120hz but I have been told by tech it truly is 120hz and the 60hz is what my cable provider is putting out so that's what shows up on the info screen.

      So far I don't have buyers remorse, deliery was fast... but... yes there is a but. When using Samsung app for Netflix, I'm a little disappointed - reason is you don't get the full menu (only search box) bar, that show ways to look for movies. When I go to Netflix login on the web it shows the bar for ways to watch, but then when I go to play the movie it say my PC needs to be compatible, like vista, windows 7, mac..... So what up with that, I would think that this Smart TV, would be supportive with Netflixs viewing capability... Other then that - It's a great TV. Just wish I did not have to use the Samsung app for Netflix.

      Bought this model for Web Brower. Found out later that the only wireless keyboard that could be used had to be Samsung's, which is not yet available (as of August 1, 2012). Can use on-screen keyboard, but is much more clumsey and takes much longer to make key strokes.

            Comments about Samsung 40" Series 6 LED Black Flat Panel 3D HDTV:

            Picture is very good, almost to bright. Trying to find right setting for current room environment. Really like all of the options included with the TV (ie. Wi-Fi, Smart Apps, SKYPE). Great customer service from ABT.
