Love My TV
Strengths: Awesome picture and design no where to put the components but they make a stand that you mount on the wall where you can put all the components. Absolutely marvelous picture
Weakness: takes a while to turn on
I bought this television refurbished and what a deal i got. Bought it with a little hesitation ut wen it came it looked brand new and for 1000 dollars cheaper than it was new locally to me. No complaints the tv is great, Everyone who has been in my house asks me where did i get my tv. Thank you powerseller you guys came through.

The stand goes w/ this TV. It is...

The stand goes w/ this TV. It is so strong, not that heavy. I love this TV. Great to buy. The picture is so clear. Have many functionality available. Nice to have it.

I can't get over how incredible...
Strengths: PICTURE QUALITY! Option to fine tune each individual station, user ability to change out main bulb( no service call), ready to go out of the box, built-in pedestal, touch screen.
Weakness: Viewing in a well lighted room only good directly in front of TV.
I can't get over how incredible the picture is. Well worth the investment. Probably should have gotten the 56" model. Recommend getting the matching Samsung HT1000 Home Theater and component stand.

This TV looks amazing! I ordered...
Strengths: Awesome picture quality, even on non-HD stations. Great black levels.
Weakness: Cannot use any hi-def inputs for PIP, No front input jacks or media slots, Remote control. Definately requires some calibration.
This TV looks amazing! I ordered it from www.shopsunshine.com for $1000 less than BB and CC. I was afraid at first ordering such an expensive item over the internet, but I had no problems with them what so ever. I use my Xbox as my DVD player and it looks great. The one thing that is totally gay about this tv is that you cannot have the PC input or the other HD inputs in a sub picture.

I strongly recommend potential...
Strengths: Picture quality is excellent
Weakness: Audio/video out of sync from home theater
I strongly recommend potential consumers of this product research the "lip sync" problem before you buy it. I wish I had. The issue is most prevalent when running audio/video thru a HTS. Its like watching a badly dubbed movie. You hear dialog before you see the characters speak. The only fix I've heard of is getting a an audio lag function either as a feature to the receiver or as an add-on...

I strongly recommend potential consumers of this product research the "lip sync" problem before you buy it. I wish I had.
The issue is most prevalent when running audio/video thru a HTS. Its like watching a badly dubbed movie. You hear dialog before you see the characters speak. The only fix I've heard of is getting a an audio lag function either as a feature to the receiver or as an add-on device. I've heard the add-on devices reduce audio quality so for me its not a viable option. Even if you go with an audio lag, it will need to be adjusted sporadically as the lag changes. Did I mention its not all the time and its worse some times more than others?
In all fairness, this may occur with all DLP's and/or other technologies, but I know for a fact it is a problem with the Samsung 5085W. Caveat emptor!
