This is a really good television. I love the Samsung brand, as do my children. They have really evolved and become a reputable brand. We have a couple of these televisions in our 2 children's rooms and they are very happy with them. As they put it very often, "this television rocks". The televisions are mainly used when they are watching movies and playing video games. This is a really good television for the money, as they are not outrageously expensive at all. Picture Quality Great picture, no matter what component you are using. I enjoy watching the graphics when my children are playing video games on it. Very clear and concise picture. Sound Quality Crystal clear sound quality all the time. I can have it on low and can still clearly hear what is being said Durability We have had Samsung televisions for a couple of years now and it is still holding strong. it still works like brand new. Design Sleek design, fits with any decor Performance Great performance, works if you are using dvd player, video console, or streaming movies.
