This review is from: Samsung 5000 46" Class (45.9"Diagonal size) 1080p 60Hz LED-LCD HDTV - UN46F5000AFXZA
Pros: Great image, color is very good after slight tweaking in the menus, plays videos from a thumb drive (lots of different codecs), looks very sleek with the thin bezel (exception noted in the "cons" section). Also, has an audio output jack that a headphone can plug into (3.5mm I think?) Has a great "Game mode" with very low input lag (not noticeable to me when I use it for PC games via HDMI).
Cons: Sleek bezel has this odd one inch square plastic bit hanging down for the remote sensor, and its off to one side on the bottom, and has an always-on red led so its hard not to notice it. Not sure why it couldn't be put in the center bottom with the samsung logo. Also, the audio out jack on the back is at a fixed level, so if you plug in headphones there, they are at a fixed level and not very loud, and the volume is disabled if you turn off the internal speakers. In "Game mode" you cannot adjust picture properties, you must adjust them prior to turning on game mode.
Other Thoughts: 46" screen is a lot bigger than I realized, but in retrospect, its a good thing as this size TV can easily be used in either a living room setting or bedroom, given you have a cabinet/wall space big enough.
