Comments about Samsung 46 in. LED TV:
I've had the Samsung 46" LED (UN46B8000) for just over three months now and overall I'm quite happy. I've been really kicking the tires on it with several different picture settings, sound settings and DVD/Blu-Ray titles to be sure I'm happy with it and I have to say that I am.
Here are some details on the three main areas of the TV (at least the ones that are most important to me):
The picture is great and I've read many reviews over the last three months. Some saying it was amazing others saying the auto-dimming feature was horrible, etc. etc. I think the picture is great. Even in really dark scenes I don't notice the auto-dimming feature kicking in and for sports (football, hockey, etc.) the image is amazing.
The one thing I've noticed that I haven't been able to figure out would be some 'artifacts' around moving objects. It is quite strange and several people have told me it is the quality of the video (TV, DVD, Blu-Ray, etc.) not the TV. I can pretty much agree with that as it doesn't seem to happen when I'm watching Pixar / Disney or other animated movies (on Blu-Ray), but it does happen with other HD Tv and some blu-ray scenes.
The sound was a big disappointment. Mostly b/c I was spending a lot of money on the TV and felt like I needed to upgrade to external speakers. After thinking about it...the TV is less than an inch deep, so any speakers in there would be pretty basic. Samsung (through Best Buy) then came out with a package deal with the sound-bar (w/ s sub) with the TV for a really good deal - and they just let me swap packages. Now I'm very happy with the sound quality.
That said, if you don't have external speakers and don't want to have external speakers, this TV may dissapoint you unless you only plan to watch the news. Anything that has music or requires some level of bass won't sound good.
I hope Samsung (and Intel, and Yahoo!) can keep adding widgets here. I really like them, but think they need to add more services - especially ones like Pandora (which Ironically comes with many Samsung Blu-Ray players, but Not the widget channel). This is a great concept and I hope they keep adding to it as I do enjoy the news feeds, flickr connectivity, etc.
The only down-side to the widget feature (and overall connectivity) is that the TV requires you to buy an additional product to connect it wirelessly to the Internet. I know I shouldn't complain, but having spent a few grand on a TV, spending another 100 or so is tough for me too swallow. It was easier for me to relocate my home router so I can be connected via Ethernet cable.
Comments about Samsung 46 in. LED TV:
The Samsumg LED TV is not only the greatest TV in the world, it is the greatest TV in the universe. The color is amazing, a very realistic picture.
My wife and I bought a blue ray LG sound system to hook up to one of its many HDMI ports--by the way, by the HDMI cables from the internet, not from a store as stores rip you off.
This TV also has a content feature which allows you to view paintings, scenery, or wildplife phtos while entertaining guests. This wasy you can have a dynamic painting with music that does not distract like turning on a television show would.
The television can be connected direcly to the internet for updates and more downloadable content. My wife loves the recipes feauture which has gourmet tecipes awith step by ste instructions.
My friends with kids like the kid content which has sing along songs to entertain young people. They are kind of basic, but the kids seem to like them.
