Most Bang for the Buck!!
Strengths: Lots of input options with 2HDMI ports. Great menu system. Excellent Picture. Good viewing range for DLP TV.
Weakness: Remote could be backlit.
This is definitely a cosmetically and aesthetically pleasing contemporary looking HDTV. Very easy to set up. This DLP HDTV is highly recommended; do not hesitate to purchase. In my opinion; The Most Bang for the Buck!!!

Review of Samsung 46
Strengths: Lots of inputs and nice to use when playing consoles games since it has a special game mode. Nice HD picture and great to use in bright rooms since it has a 2 brightness settings for the dlp lamp.
Weakness: Upconvert 480i to 720P. My tv had a slight geometry error on a 4:3 picture the lower part of the screen was about half an inch narrower than the top.
First I wanted to say that this tv is the bedroom TV and not my primary TV. If it was my primary tv I wouldnt have been buying. I have cox cable and HD channels and wathing DVD in 720P is great. As for standard content 480i either in analog of digital is not that good. If i set my cable box to output 720P for Standard definition content its looks worse on the tv than letting the tv do the...

First I wanted to say that this tv is the bedroom TV and not my primary TV. If it was my primary tv I wouldnt have been buying.
I have cox cable and HD channels and wathing DVD in 720P is great. As for standard content 480i either in analog of digital is not that good. If i set my cable box to output 720P for Standard definition content its looks worse on the tv than letting the tv do the conversion to 720P. SO I let the box output 480i and then the tv do the conversion. Even then I'm not satisfied with the picture quality. My Sony CRT RPTV outshines this tv by lightyears when it comes to displaying 480i since MY CRT can displays this without converting the picture. I'm not an average "joe" when it comes to tv. I have had my CRT tv calibrated by a pro. For example my wife cant see any of the flaws that I see. She cant even see the geometry error. I dont know if I will call samsung to have them send a tech out since it still under warranty, but probably I will. The converted SD content looks blocky, fussy and smeary. I dont really have any other word to say about it.
My friend have exactly the same tv so I knew what I was going to get minus the geometry error. So for the price and HD and upconverted dvd content it was a good buy in my mind. Its the biggest tv that I can fit in the armoir and still have enough clearance for ventilation. I use component input and not HDMI and I'm going to try HDMI to see if that reduces the error or not.
So I give it 2 stars as it is not without the error I would have given it 3.
Next time I will not purchase a 720P tv but a 1080i or 1080P since prices are coming down on these models(to fit my budget) on the same size as this tv.

Great size. Great price. Great brand.
Strengths: Good price.
Weakness: Does not cook popcorn very well.
Samsung products are increasingly one of the top products in many product lines, like Sony was supposed to be while I was growing up. The products are less expensive than most comparable products. Most of the DLP TVs I have seen have good pictures and enough inputs to allow most components to hook-up. This one is no exception.

Nice features for an intermediate size HDTV.
Strengths: HDMI input, lots of inputs, 720p, Game mode, & easy setup
Weakness: No digital cable card reader
I replaced a Sony 32" CRT with this model. I picked a size comparable in height. I didn't want a five foot wide television for every room. Superb features and 720p resolution. Game mode for my kid's gaming. Extra inputs for everything imaginable. The setup was simple. I'd love to see 1080p but the sub $1250 price makes up the difference. The size is great for smaller rooms. Don't spend $3000 for...

Great Valued Large Screen TV
Strengths: Versatile, excellent picture quality, large number of easily assessable input options, intuitive on-screen menu, excellent picture quality, light weight, compact, quiet, smart and effective packaging
Weakness: Spotty quality control (TV required some tweaking before getting it to work, see more in Comments below), remote control buttons too small and hard to identify at a glance
The unit is well-built, well-packaged and quite stylish. Set-up was easy with its auto channel search and easy to use on-screen menu. Copies of the quick reference guide and full menu are available for download at the Samsung site.

Here is the detail on my ‘Quality Control’ comment under ‘Weaknesses’ - This particular unit was having problem fresh out of the box. It (basically the lamp) would not stay on for more than 5 seconds upon plugging in the AC cord. After numerous attempts in resetting it (plugging and unplugging the AC cord) without success, I finally had to consult the ‘Problem Diagnostics’ section of the manual. Based on the flashing pattern of the indicator lights on the front panel, the problem was indicated as an improperly aligned lamp compartment door. Looked for the compartment door in the back and it felt secure with 4 Philips screws. Took a gamble and opened up the compartment door and noticed a small contact switch. I actually got the set to stay on after playing with the switch for a while. Did not want to press my luck and carefully closed and secured the compartment door while making sure the set still stayed on. I am quite sure the switch is still faulty since it was allowing the set to stay on with the compartment door open (basically defeating the safety feature). I may call for Samsung service to get the switch check-out/replaced while the set is still under warranty. So far, the set has been performing beautifully with no further issue.
Overall Rating would have been 5 stars if I didn’t have to play technician.
