Pros

plenty of inputs for both newer and legacy equipment, works with everything and so many ports you probably won't need a receiver

1 agrees

displays full 1080p HD video in perfect detail, nothing lost or blurred

1 agrees

looks fine for most viewers right out of the box, no need to adjust it

1 agrees

does reasonably well with sports and fast-paced movies, not much blur or stutter

fast enough to be used with fast-paced video games, good response

Cons

sound is very poor, everything is washed out and difficult to hear

1 agrees

video upscaling of SD signals isn't very good, looks dramatically poor in comparison to HD content

1 agrees

colors never get very realistic, tend to be overly saturated from a videophile's perspective

Just wait a while. It will probably crash for good. Mine did it three time before sliding into oblivion. It's 8 months old, been fighting with Samsung for 3 weeks. finally Tv shop came and got it. Now Samsung claims I abused it and refusing to repair under warranty. The saga continues.

All of a sudden my Samsung just stopped and started to click like it wanted to turn off and on. When I let it cool down it starts again as if nothing was wrong. It is fairly new as in the last six months. Has anyone else had this problem?
