Excellent TV at a great price point2/21/2009
While there are plenty of LCD TVs of this size, most run twice to three times as much. When seen on a wall full of HDTVs, this looks as good or better than most of them. Having it at home confirms my choice. I've purchased many Samsung products over the years, and they always deliver excellent quality for a great price. This TV continues that trend. As others have noted, the speakers on this TV are not very good, but that is very common among large flat screen sets. Hook it up to a home theater or external sound system and you will be thoroughly pleased with this set.
I love this TV. Buying it through buy.com will save you hundreds. This TV is a great size at 46 inches. The contrast is great. I bought a Samsung a few years ago a 720p 32 inch and loved it. So I thought I would buy another samsung. You can buy other more expensize 46 inches from Samsung but this on has all the features you need. The only differnce between the other more expensive are generally more HDMI inputs. This one has three which i find to be perfect. You will hear some people complain about the sound qaulity I find it to be good but not great. 1080p and big size you cant go wrong. I did a lot or reserch before buying this product and is the best qaulity for the best price.
Great TV for the price!1/21/2009
This TV is great for the money and is a great brand. When buying things that you will use a lot and have for a long time it is important that you buy something of qaulity. Samsung has never let me down. I bought a 32" two years ago and loved it and that why I purchased this one. It has all the feature you need to be HD ready in every sense. I did a lot of research before buying this TV, so don't waste your time. Its a great TV! You will hear people complain about the sound but I didn't find it much of an issue. I thought it was as good as any speakers that will come with any other type of TV. Of course if you want awsome surround sound you will need to buy other speakers. The picture qaulity is great and its easy to set up. It has many neat little features that you won't get with other TVs. For example it turns off my DVD player when I turn off my TV. I thought that was something that is very cool. I didn't give this TV a 5 overall satisfaction because there are better TVS out there. The average Joe will not be able to tell the differnce in quality.
I have had this TV since June of 08, amazing quality with the blu ray player and has held up well since my purchase. The tv has many different inputs, I have my computer, blu ray, xbox 360, dvd player all plugged into the tv, highly recommend it.
An Excellent Product8/31/2008
I liked the product. It has bright picture, easy to operate and many user frindly features. The color contrast of picture are commendable. The most excellent part is the courtsy of the datavision dealer, who went out of his way to help me get the product shipped over night at no extra cost. I am satisfied with product and also with service.
Good value, 2 weeks delivery, confusing install7/19/2008
BUY.com offered the best price. The HDTV came in good shape and the delivery guy even waited for me to come back to the house for 1/2h. You will not see the product until two weeks minimum based on how they manage the system. Your order goes through a four staged process. Only when it's at the warehouse (the last step) does it get delivered in two days. BUY doesn't make installation easy nor do the instructions from Samsung. Makes you think about using the install services from Best Buy. I still don't think the picture is at optimal performance.
Nice price for the TV7/1/2008
Nice TV with good features. Particularly like the optical SPDIF audio output that outputs surround sound when receiving local digit broadcast. I setup the universal remote for my wife such that when she turns on the TV, the stereo comes on to received optical input. So she can enjoy full surround HD TV shows. OK music playing function via USB key also. Again sound to stereo via optical output. It displays the album arts too but playback control is limited. Source select is a bit odd.

One person set up. Great picture. Ideal size, contrast and sound for our 15' X 15' family room. I love on-line shopping. Was watching the TV four days after I ordered it!
