2 out of 5 eggsSamsung cheaped out

Pros: Great sound, brightness, viewing angle, color contrast, this tv really was great for its time

Cons: unfortunately this great TV has a common issue, actually this issue plagues many Samsung tv's of this generation. (buy with caution) The capacitors on the power supply of this generation of Samsung TV's are low quality and when they burn out the TV goes into a boot loop where it turns itself on and of rapidly repeatedly. This issue could of been avoided if Samsung spent .50 cents more per TV for better capacitors. Because of this some TV's of this generation are part of a class action lawsuit... but this one isn't covered.

Other Thoughts: If your TV has this issue then there are two different steps you can take,
1)buy a new power supply board, Samsung charges $135. E bay charges around $50 (used)
2)you can replace the dead capacitors on the power board with high capacity ones. This is the method I did, and I had to replace two capacitors with higher quality ones. I bought them for a dollar each. However this requires that you know how to solder, if you can google about the issue because there is a lot of tutorials because others have had this issue.

5 out of 5 eggsNice!

Pros: Great picture, looks amazing with 360's especially when you have your resolution set highest. No dead pixels thus far and a killer price.

Cons: Built In Speakers are horrible, but why would you buy a TV like this any not get a nice set of surround sound speakers?

Other Thoughts: If you don't really know much about TV's and just want to settle on one, this is a good buy that's all I've got to say.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Set

Pros: Extremely nice picture with HD (Dish). Even non-hd looks pretty good. Easy set-up, user friendly menu system, lots of adjusments but looks pretty good right out of the box. No noticable blur during action scenes. Screen is not susceptible to glare. Sound is not the greatest but OK for normal TV watching, equalizer helps; recommend home theater for movies and 5.1 broadcast. Compared picture with Sony, as good or better. I would recommend this set. Newegg price and shipping top notch as always.

Cons: Sound not the greatest, remote not universal (but is backlit).

Other Thoughts: Tune in "Planet Earth" on Discovery HD, WOW!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent TV

Pros: Samsung quality, no dead pixels, bright, Xbox 360 and Blu-Ray look amazing, speakers are not visible, very attractive design.

Cons: Speakers sound pretty tinny. Plan to use TV with external speakers. Con then becomes Pro as speakers are not visible, cuts down on extra bevel.

Other Thoughts: Very fast (and free) shipping. Ordered TV on a Sunday. Was delivered to my door Wednesday morning. NewEgg rocks.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful TV, glad I stuck with Samsung

Pros: Where do I start? Crystal clear picture regardless of input (Digital Cable HDTV, PC, XBOX 360, etc), 60Hz looks FINE for everything including fast sports (was watching 1080p hockey just a few hours ago and it looked amazing), great response time.

Games on the PC @ 1920 x 1080 look GREAT and have little to no ghosting or motion blur regardless of the speed of the action on the screen (played everything from Left 4 Dead to Lord of the Rings Online to Fallout 3, all looks amazing).

3 x HDMI, 2 x Component, and 2 x AV inputs are more than enough, screen does not reflect light like others that Samsung and few other companies make.

Standard Definition TV looks fine, except on REALLY old television shows that are shown in non-widescreen low quality 480p (think Pre-1994) and even then it still looks fine. Menu system is intuitive (even lets you select the name of each input to match what is hooked into it).

HDMI #2 is MADE to have a "DVI" connection from a computer hooked to it.

Cons: It's not free, it doesn't fetch my slippers, and it doesn't seem to want to make me soup when I am feeling sick. Oh, and the stand and area around the screen are glossy, so they attract fingerprints easily. But that isn't really a con because it looks really nice, and as long as you keep your friends from putting their greasy mitts all over your TV, it will stay nice with minimal cleaning.

Other Thoughts: This HDTV makes the PERFECT computer monitor. I specially built a media server/gaming computer just to put next to my entertainment center and hook into this thing. My NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT automatically recognized the TV as a Samsung HDTV and adjusted its output to 1080p. 5 minutes later after a little tweaking on the computer, I had a crystal clear 46" 1080p computer monitor. Gaming on this thing is amazing. Text is crystal clear and readable from more than 10ft away while surfing the web or editing text documents (although bumping menu font size up to 9 and setting it to bold makes strain on the eyes almost non-existent as compared to minimal depending on what color you have your theme set to in Windows).

Seriously, I researched HDTV's and waited to get one for over a year. This is the best buy, best quality, and most compatible TV there is out there. Can't go wrong. Newegg shipping was FAST! Ordered on Friday, delivery service called to schedule delivery the following Wednesday.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this TV

Pros: Beautiful picture with very deep blacks. Outstanding image quality with HD signal. Very nice looking set with a lot of input options. Excellent remote control and intuitive menu system.

Cons: Built in speakers are not very good. I use a nice surround sound system, but tried the regular TV speakers before everything was hooked up. I played with the audio settings in the menus and nothing seemed to help.

Other Thoughts: Consumer Reports recent review of this set made my decision easy. I would recommend this TV to anyone looking for a solid 46 inch HD set.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

Pros: *Great HD picture - most standard channels look good, too.
*From reading the other reviews, I expected the sound to be horrendous - I don't know what in the world they expected because it will blow you out of the room when it is only halway up and the quality isn't bad at all. I do have a surround sound system, but you really don't need it at all for just everyday program watching.
*Menus are pretty easy to navigate and everything is where you would expect it to be.
*Great finish on both the screen and the cabinet
*AnyNET works great with my Samsung surround sound - you can use the same remote to work both.

Cons: *You can pick up a little lag on really fast action(in Spiderman 3 for instance) - if this bothers you enough o spend an extra few hundred dollars for a 120HZ, then go for it. I'm glad I didn't.

Other Thoughts: I researched a lot before buying, and I think I made the right decision.
