Great TV---Great Features--Great Price

By

from Undisclosed

I only watch a limited amount of TV and so I didn't want to spend a lot for a new flat screen TV for my bedroom. I was thrilled to find this TV on sale as a floor model. The price couldn't be beat and it's a fantastic television. Definitely a good product for the price I paid.

Samsung HDTV

By

from Tampa, FL

I am very pleased with the picture on my Samsung. It is actually much better than my prior HDTV, which was a no name brand. I think the clarity of Samsung is much better, and it feels like the characters on TV are actually in the room with me. I like that I can connect via HDMI with two ports (I don't need more than that - one for my blu-ray player and one for my cable box). I can always disconnect my blu-ray if I wanted to connect my computer to another device. The sound is also great from the speakers.

Great TV. Set up on my basement wall with a VESA mount. Works great. I watch Thomas and Friends with my son all the time and looks awesome. Nice bright colors, nice clear picture. ONLY drawback it it doesn't have enough HDMI connections OR audio output connections.

Replacement for a bedroom TV

By

from Georgia

This is a replacement TV for my bedroom. Overall it is a very good tv. I gave it a 4 star rating because I had to try every possible STB & TV setting to get a widescreen picture without any "cutoff" information on the edges. The only aspect ratio setting that gives me an acceptable widescreen picture is 4:3 on the STB and 16:9 on the TV. Cable choice and source settings make little or no difference in picture quality. This is not a big issue with me because I do not subscribe to HD programming. I'm satisfied with the picture as it is. If I had it to do over, I would probably spend a little more for a set with more input/output choices including a audio output port. I recommend this TV for anyone looking for a good, economical TV with basic input/output options.

Why not VGA Input?

By

from Miami

A modern tv, LED or LCD... MUST HAVE a VGA input! Not having it, is surprising the buyers that take it for granted. At least, in the specifications, you MUST put a BIG ADVICE OF WARNING: THIS TV DOES NOT HAVE PC (vga) INPUT! Buy under your own risk!
