My boyfriend picked this 52" Samsung Tv out at the store since I do not really know much about TV's, however it turned out to be a great investment. The picture quality is great, the sound is great and it is a pretty damn big television! I think now they may be running some good specials on them for the holiday shoppers so it would be a good time to consider buying one. This is the first really big flat screen TV that we ever had and we are really pleased with it since we got it. It also looks great in the living room and is an impressive size for a TV so when people come over they often comment on how big our television is. I think once you start to go bigger than 52" it seems the picture quality is not as good and of course it starts to get really pricy. So if you want a big TV you should look at this and definitely look for some bargains during the holidays, I am sure the stores will want to sell them!
