I have been using this lcd for the past one year, I went to quite a few stores before i finalised on this one. On comparing side by side with sony and sharp this one wins hands down, go ahead and buy one and impress your family and friends.

Awsome HDTV for value
Strengths: Price, great contrast, picture, and it looks good with any decor. Lots of inputs and 2 HDMI inputs. Relatively light and sturdy stand.
Weakness: Not many! Remote is a bit awkward to hold and does not work from accross my bedroom about 15 feet away. Sound from the internal speakers could be a little louder and clearer.
This is my first HDTV and it is great!! I've compared other HDTVs and this one has the best picture and colors for the price. It does not display 1080i native, but the 768p is really good for gaming and watching movies with action. I've already played Call of Duty 2 and Half Life 2 Episode 1 on PC, and they both looked better than on my 24" 1920 x 1200 Dell monitor! This TV was built for PC and...

This is my first HDTV and it is great!! I've compared other HDTVs and this one has the best picture and colors for the price. It does not display 1080i native, but the 768p is really good for gaming and watching movies with action. I've already played Call of Duty 2 and Half Life 2 Episode 1 on PC, and they both looked better than on my 24" 1920 x 1200 Dell monitor! This TV was built for PC and console gamers in mind. I connected a $12 Phillips antenna to it and I can get at least 20HDTV channels here in the SF Bay area for free. Awesome! As for the lack of displaying 1080i or 1080p, those sets cost a lot more and this is great for a starter set or a gaming set. I'm very happy with my purchase and would recommend this set to anyone looking for a quality affordable HDTV. Since it is not the latest model, you can probably pick one up on sale at a reduced price like I did.

great picture - poor sound
Strengths: Broadcast HD is excellent. Set appearance is great.
Weakness: Very disappointed in sound quality: speakers vibrate even at relatively low volume.
Costs to much to ship back for an exchange. Will probably have to spend the money on external speakers to eliminate the vibration problem, negating the cost saving of buying on the internet.

Not a Good DEAL.
Strengths: Dont know, did not work out of the box!!!!
Weakness: Wont even light up. Picture quality, what picture?
Ordered one in from Buydig.com never worked even for a minute. Samsung said to wait 14 working days for them to find a person to service it. After 14 working days they said that they would e-mail the person right now and it would take another 2 days for a call. Sill waiting!!!!!
Looks real nice on my office floor collecting dust. Buy local or not at all!!!!!!!
