    Wonderful TV!

    Posted .

    This TV has just the right features and the picture is awesome. I actually downgraded to this from a Samsung LED TV. I had returned that one because the colors were too red or pink. This one is great right out of the box! Minor adjustments if at all! The other TV had a wireless internet connection that refused to connect and I had a Samsung Blu-ray that had the same thing that also refused to connect to my wi-fi even though everything else connected fine. So, no need for the Internet connection unless you were going to connect directly to the router. This one has the usb connection though.. The price is right too ( I paid $899 ). Oh, and this model has the matte finish so you don't have bad reflections from the screen. I'm watching a Laker game on it now! I love this TV!

    Great TV for gaming, sports, and blu-ray

    Posted .

    I bought this TV about a month ago to replace an old Sharp 32" LCD that had stopped working. I also had recently moved into a new house with a much larger living room, so I wanted to upgrade in screen size. My primary interest in the TV purchase was to have a TV that would work great for video games. I have an Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii all plugged into this TV. Due to the fact that I have 3 video game systems hooked up to the TV and that I have FiOS cable, I couldn't care less about the TV having internet connectivity, widgets, or any of that stuff. I also was crossing shopping this TV with the 46" offerings from Sony and LG, as well as the Panasonic plasmas. After evaluating reviews and going with what I thought was the best picture I chose this Samsung. I could not be happier. The picture and features on this TV blow me away. Auto Motion Plus seems to work great for gaming and sports, be it football, basketball, or hockey, but Auto Motion Plus does make normal TV shows look amusingly awkward. This feature can easily be toggled on and off when necessary though. In terms of gaming, its great. I think that Red Dead Redemption is one of the prettiest games out there right now - and this TV makes the game look positively stunning. Halo Reach, Uncharted 2 - it doesn't matter what you play, you will be happy with this TV. This Samsung even makes the decidedly average Wii graphics look good. Wii Sports Resort looks nice, Metroid Other M is decent, and Red Steel 2 is very impressive. With this TV, Red Steel 2 could even be mistaken for a 360 or PS3 game in terms of graphical quality. Obviously Blu-Ray looks great too. There is a lot of talk between LED and CCFL backlighting. I personally think that this TV blows away the side-lit LEDs in terms of picture quality and brightness/black levels. The "good" LED TVs are in a different price bracket, so I won't bother comparing them. I also have this TV in a reasonably bright room, and I have no issue with seeing the screen due to ambient lighting conditions. In terms of problems with this TV, I can only see one issue: the speakers. They're terrible. Don't even bother thinking that you can deal with them. You are doing yourself and your $1k TV investment a disservice. I bought the Sony HTCT150 soundbar. It was on sale when I bought it from Best Buy, now its regular price. It has great sound, and matches the quality of the TV. On the plus side in terms of sound, this Samsung has an optical out jack in the back - so if you have a sound system, you just plug in an optical audio cable and you are good to go. I have my cable box, PS3, and 360 all plugged into the rear HDMI ports, and the Wii plugged into one of the rear Component ports. The optical audio out seamlessly delivers the sound to the soundbar no matter what TV input I am using. If you don't have a sound system, just budget ~$300 more, buy a soundbar, and be done with it.

    Stunning picture for an LCD

    Posted .

    I love my electronics, and do massive amounts of research before I buy anything. I'll start out by saying that in my humble opinion, Samsung has the best flat panel TV's on the market. Their LED-LCDs are beyond comparison, and their "regular" LCDs have a picture quality that rivals most other manufacturers LED-LCDs. The picture on this TV is better than any other TV I've found in the $1,000 range. Most of my audio-visual gear is pansonic, so I was down to this TV and a 46" Panasonic plasma. From a picture standpoint, it wasn't even close. The picture on the Samsung C630 was so much clearer. Even though I initially wanted to go with the panasonic so it would play more nicely with the rest of my "gear", I couldn't ignore the side by side comparionson. Best picture in a 46" TV in this price range bar none. I coupled this with a pansonic blu-ray player with an HDMI connection and the result is nothing short of breathtaking. And, as a bonus, the Samsung can actually control the blu ray player and vice versa (i.e. turn on the blu ray player, and it automatically turns on the TV and sets to the right input, etc.), so this TV plays nice with the Panasonic Blu-Ray anyway. The TV has several video display options that allow one to tinker with and customize the picture exactly to one's liking. There's a great amount of flexibility here, and even a bunch of pre-programed settings to allow one to optimize the video for things like playing a game, watching a movie, being in a dark room, etc. Even if you are picky about your video, I'm confident that with the flexibility fo the display options, you can find a setting that blows you away. Although the Best Buy website says this does not have an ethernet port, that is wrong. This TV is able to be hooked up to a router / home network. It is great being able to watch home videos, pictures, and listen to music all stored on my computer from this TV. It is nice to not have to hook a video camera or another peripheral up to the TV to view files. I just navigate to the computer through the TV's menus, and I have access to all of my digital media. Network setup could not have been easier...I simply plugged an ethernet cable from my router and it worked. I pushed the "media play" button and was instantly able to find my computer and navigate folders to find home videos etc. From my Windows 7 computer, I was able to use the "Play to" function from my computer, and a message came up on my TV saying "There's a request to play this video...do you want to?". Everything should be so easy. Couple of small nitpicks...remote control sensor isn't that great. I often have to push a button more than once to get the TV to do something. One pretty much has to point the remote control directly at the sensor for it to work. That is too bad. Also, when navigating computer devices to find media files, the names of the devices (in the <computer name>:<User> format) often get cut off, so one cannot see the full computer device name. This is a bit annoying when trying to navigate between different user's media files, but the user's name gets cut off. The audio is solid, but not top rate. Then again, I've never been blown away by ANY TV's native speakers. Chances are, if the sound is going to really upset you, you would be playing the audio through a home theatre system insstead. So to me the sound is very sufficient for a TV. Over all, this TV is awesome. The best picture in this price range. Network compatible with a no-brainer easy setup (really no setup...I just plugged it in and it worked). If the remote control worked a little easier, or if the digital media navigation was a little easier, I would have given it 5 stars all around. But these are minior annoyances, and if you're like me...namely, you buy a TV for the picture quality...you cannot go wrong with this TV in this price range. Highly recommended.

    amazing

    In Oct. 2007, I purchased a Samsung 32" HDTV (LCD, 720P, 7,000:1 contrast, 60hz) for $899. I thought it was great, my first HDTV. I played my Xbox360 on it, as well as a blu-ray player. I could tell the difference between dvd and blu-ray, it just seemed sharper, clearer. I was happy. This summer I decided to upgrade to a larger, more up-to-date model. I chose this Samsung 46" LCD because it looked better than the Sony 46" bravia (model ex500) in side-by-side comparison, and it was also on sale for $899. After getting it home and hooking everything up, switching the settings on my blu-ray player from 720p to 1080p, my wife wanted to see if she could see a difference while watching Julie and Julia (she couldn't see a difference between dvd and blu-ray on my other tv). As soon as the first scene began, our jaws dropped at the crystal clear, ultra sharp picture. It looked so realistic, unlike anything I've ever seen. It almost didn't even look like a movie, especially when they showed close-ups of the food being cooked, looked like it was in the room with us. I popped in The Dark Knight, and both of our jaws dropped again, the explosions, the chase sequences, the details of the surroundings we had not noticed before. I'm sure a $2000-3000 LED with 240hz and 3D-ready could possibly look better, but why would you want to spend that much money when you could get this tv for around $900-1000, and have plenty of money left over to purchase an awesome surround sound system and a full library of blu-ray movies to enjoy?

    Amazing Clarity

    Posted .

    I shopped around a lot before deciding on this TV. I've always loved Samsung's picture quality, but I wasn't sure I wanted to spend so much money on a TV...I contemplated some less expensive brands, but once you see a Samsung picture, it's hard to compromise, so I sucked it up and spent the extra couple hundred bucks...I have NO buyers remorse, this is an awesome TV (I've had it a little over a week). I can hardly see any difference between this and the more expensive LED-LCD models. This TV is not advertised as Internet Ready, but in fact it does have an Ethernet port! I have my Internet Home Theater hooked up to mine, so either way I'm covered. The appearance of this TV has Samsung's classic look, very stylish, and this model has a matte finish on the screen, so you don't get that nasty back light glare. The only complaint I can think of at all is that it took a herculean effort to attached the HDMI cable to the HDMI ports on this. I would recommend attaching the HDMI cable a couple times (break it in) before you try to do it while hanging this on a wall. Not sure why it was so dang tight.

    I couldn't be any happier with this TV

    Posted .

    I did a lot of reseach and decided to buy a 46" Samsung LED LCD TV. When I got to the store, I looked at the models I was interested in. To my surprise I liked a model without LED backlighting the best. I queried a sales associate and he said an LED TV would be better for someone who is an avid gamer or VERY critical of their equipment. I told him I was a casual viewer and my kids are casual gamers. He suggested I consider a non-LED version to same a few bucks. I'm really glad I did. This TV is outstanding. The picture is great (albeit the screen is not pure black if you're looking at a blank screen in a dark room). There are numerous settings a user can adjust to obtain their personal best picture. I am impressed with the sound. I was going to buy a sound bar, but held off until I had a chance to listen to the TV speakers. I might buy a sound bar later, but I'm happy with the sound as is.

    One of the Best Pictures I've Seen!

    Posted .

    Purchased the Sony 46" LED LCD 46EX710 yesterday for $999. Took it back this morning and picked up this one. WOW! This is the picture quality i was hoping for when I orginally purchased the Sony LED just to get let down. Honestly, you could if you chose to, not have to calibrate this TV and simply adjust the Clear Motion settings to be a bit more natural. That's how great this picture quality is. The colors pop and blacks are excellent. Moving away from the center of set doesn't wash out the picture like the Sony LED did. While there is no Internet , there is a RJ45 connection however it might be for updates. One nice feature on this set is the ability to custimize the Clear Motion settings to your liking. Most sets give you two or three options with an off option. This set gives you that plus the ability to play with Clear Motion so that it works for you. Sound is what you'd expect from an LCD. Most people have surround sounds or soundbars nowadays anyway. I have an old Bose Cinemate (07 Model) and unfortunately Samsung got rid of the RCA Out connections. It did have a 3.5mm audio out so all i had to do was purchase an $8 adapter at Radio Shack to connect my Bose. This LCD is a great buy! I moved up from a 40" Sony LCD (120hz, 1080p) and going up in size has not reduced the quality of the picture at all. If anything this set actually even looks better than my old 40" Sony. Great job Samsung!

    Picture Quality Is Unparalleled

    Posted .

    My review is based mostly on the picture quality, since the sound on flat-screen TVs is rarely better than average (that's what home theater systems are for!). I hooked up my 46" Samsung to the Bose CineMate Series II speakers, and I couldn't be happier with my set-up. It's like a movie theater in my room! Consumer Reports did a review of big TVs for less money, and the Samsung LN46C630 came in first place with an overall score of 74. Its picture quality in high definition is excellent, and in standard definition it's very good. The viewing angle and sound quality are both good, but what really helps is the remote and onscreen menu, both of which are excellent. I never thought I'd be able to color calibrate a TV by myself, but after doing some searches on techie message boards, I managed to get the balance levels on my TV to be perfect (the blues are pumped up in the store because of the bright lights -- it's less true-to-life and more "dynamic," which gets cartoon-ish after a while). There are 4 HDMI inputs, which is more than enough for me, but only 2 of the old-fashioned red/yellow/white hook-ups, which I found upsetting. The energy cost is only about $44 a year, so that's another plus. I highly recommend this TV, as Samsung and LG have both been crushing Sony in the LCD arena for the past couple years, which I did not know until I did my research.

    Great picture and sound for decent price

    Posted .

    I previously had a Sanyo 47' LCD that I had problems with from the beginning. The power supply started failing a few months into the purchase and after the 3rd power supply, got my money back. I researched a lot because I wanted to get my money's worth. I came across this tv and an LG. After reading some reviews, I decided to go for this LCD and I am glad I picked this tv. The picture quality is amazing, beats out the Sanyo LCD I previously had. The dark scenes look great unlike my previous tv and works great with my Samsung Home Theater System. The 120Hz makes live shows look so real and Blu-Ray movies look so vivid. We were watching Toy Story 1 and 2 on it and my son couldn't believe how life-like the characters look. If you're looking for a great tv for a good price, don't second guess yourself and get this tv. You won't regret it!

    Great TV, Great Price.

    Posted .

    After realizing that 3D TV gives me motion-sickness, I decided that it was the time to complete my home theatre with a 46" TV. We had a Samsung soundbar system and blu-ray player, so I was fairly sure I wanted to stay with that same brand. I was dead-set on getting one that was LED backlit. Consumer reports ranked this one as the highest non-LED TV, however, so I thought I'd check it out. In the store, I couldn't discern much of a difference between this model and the much more expensive LED backlit one next to it, also by Samsung. I must have stood there and looked at them for 20 minutes or more. Both were on sale, but this one was significantly less expensive and I decided it would meet my needs. The picture is awesome. Menus are fairly easy to use, though it takes some tinkering to figure out which options you want (see technical note below). The blacks fade slightly to grey when you view the TV at a wide angle, but this is a minor concern to me. Travel BD disks like "Over Ireland" are amazing and movies are so good that I'm addicting to buying blu-ray disks now. Though I'm not much of a football fan, I've been watching bits and pieces of the games because it feels like you're right on the field with the players. Sound quality is mediocre. It is better than our 37" Samsung, but we owned a 37" Panasonic that sounded as if it had a soundbar in it. For regular TV watching it is satisfactory. We have a Samsung soundbar home theater system, so if we're watching a movie we have the option to create a true home theatre sound and visual experience. I'm satisfied with all of the features. Our Blu-ray player connects to the internet, so I didn't need the internet connectivity on the TV. I was surprised to find that the TV would detect computers through the home network and play music or pictures on those machines just like the BD player can. TECHNICAL NOTE: One thing that impressed me about these TVs was the motion-smoothing feature. I thought it looked good in the store, and made that a required feature for my TV purchase. When I got the TV home and started to tried it out, I found that everything, even the Empire Strikes Back, looked like a cheap 1970s video production. After researching this problem on the internet, I learned about the "Soap Opera Effect", which is neutralized by turning OFF the motion smoothing feature. There are two levels of motion-smoothing on the TV (and I believe the lower level is the default setting), so if the picture is disappointing you try adjusting this feature to see if the picture improves. I've had this TV for just over a month. This is a good deal. This TV performs well above its price range.

    Great Picture--without the bells and whistles....

    Posted .

    I chose this Samsung model based on a lot of internet research and determined it to be just what I was looking for. I primarily needed a TV with a great picture, but without paying for all the extra bells and whistles like internet connectivity, 3D picture, or other options. It is for a weekend get-away home. Prior to buying this model, I had read about Samsung's panel lottery where they use screens made from a few different manufacturers--and only the genuine Samsung one works best. So, when I originally bought this TV from a Best Buy competitor, I got it home and looked at the sticker on the back. It was not a Samsung panel. I returned it right away and went to Best Buy where the salesman actually opened the box in the store to look at the version sticker which indicated that it was a Samsung panel. The rest is history....got it home, hooked it up to a Polk 6000 Soundbar, and now I have a great system. Picture is great, very clear, even from side angles. (which is the major flaw of the non-Samsung panels). I also have a four year old Sony XBR4, which is great, but cost more than twice what this Samsung cost and the picture is no better. So, if you want a TV with a superb picture and don't need all the extras, then this is the model for you. But....make sure the sticker on the back (or side) has a version number starting with SQ## to ensure it is genuine Samsung. If it starts with AU## or worse, CM##....return it right away....!!!! (google Samsung Panel Lottery for more info)

    Get this one

    Posted .

    Bought this TV from Best Buy on Saturday and went home and set it up. Check out the reviews on this model from CNet to get some detailed goodies, but here is my $.02. The picture is AMAZING! Especially on my Xbox which is a 1080p source. My DirecTV is still analog, so, you know, so so. Use the "Clear" setting on the "TruMotion" to keep it from looking like a home video. And ppl, DO NOT WORRY that it is a flourescent backlight! Most LED backlights are only around the edge and hurt more than they help. The few LED TVs that have a full LED array behind the screen, with local dimming, are good, don't get me wrong, but they are the flagship models and cost twice what this TV does. This TV has all the tweakability goodies that the top of the line Samsungs have, as well as a back-lit remote; unheard of in this price range. It was easy to put together the base and connect everything, and then the TV did it's "Plug & Play" setup, which found all the sources and channels. It was fun to turn on the ambient light sensor and then turn the lights on and off to see the TV dim and brighten by itself. Which brings me to 2 very small cons: When the Ambient Light Sensor is on, it seems to occasionally interfere with my DTV remote. I turn it off and the remote will work fine again. Also, I expected to plug all of my digital sources into the TV via HDMI and then send one Optical Digital Audio cable out the TV's SPDIF port to my older digital receiver, which doesn't have HDMI. Well, it won't do that according to the manual. It will only send Dolby Digital out of that port if it is receiving an over the air or cable digital signal. So if you have an HD Directv receiver connected by HDMI, it will only pass a stereo signal to the receiver out the SPDIF port. Same with Xbox connected to TV via HDMI (my case). But I will find a way to work around that, no biggie. So for ppl wanting a TV in this price range, use all of my research and running around and save yourself the headache... just get this one!

    Good TV, not great

    Posted .

    I almost returned this TV twice already. Not the best start of a good review but there it is. The first issue I had was the info button on the remote. When you hit it, the TV shows the resolution and refresh rate. Exaple would be 1080p @60hz. This TV is advertised as 120hz, and it is, but you will NEVER see the info screen show 1080p@120hz. Why? I wondered too, it sems the info screen is showing you the incoming signal strength, which can only be at best 60hz...for now. All incoming data, whether through cable, blu ray, satellite, Verizon, Comcast, whatever...it all comes thru at 60hz, the TV just plays that signals at twice the speed, hence the 120hz. OK, whatever Samsung. The next issue was minor "ghosting" on black screens, where the scren isn't true black; there may be some splotches on the screen. But these only show during load screens while I am gaming. If you play with the settings, you can prety much make they go away. And finally the speakers. If you use the built in stereo setting, it sounds like garbage. Tweak the equalizer settings away from factory default and you should be OK. But with all that being said the TV does have a pretty good picture and Bluray movies look AMAZING!

    Great TV

    Posted .

    I have had this TV for about two months now and couldn't be happier with it. I wasn't looking for a "feature" laden TV, I just wanted picture quality. Coming from the Plasma world, I have to say I was a little worried about going with an LCD but my fears were unfounded. Plus its great to never worry about image retention or burn-in! Blu-Ray looks absolutely amazing out of the box. Unconverted and standard def video required some tweaking of the picture settings to get rid of "clay-face" and other imperfections. There are multiple suggested picture setting configurations on A/V forums - find the one that you like the best. The TV handles motion like a champ. There are several pre-sets to tweak if you do not like the "soap-opera" effect that sometimes comes with the 120hz. If you do not have a perfect over-the-air HD signal it does seem like this TV is a little more prone to "noise" in the picture. There is also noticeable delay from the remote which can be annoying at times. The Speakers are as good as can be expected for a Flat Panel TV. In my opinion, the very slight bump in picture quality is not worth the extra $400-$600 for the LED TV's.

    Awesome TV sounds great

    Posted .

    After doing months of research on tv's I decided on this Samsung model. Last year I purchased a 32" samsung tv for my bedroom and have been very pleased with it so naturally when purchasing a larger tv I stuck with samsung. First let me say I think the sound quality is great, on average I dont turn it up above13 which is about 20% volume. I dont know what people expect from a tv when they write negative reviews about sound. Sure if you want the booming deep bass sounds you will need to get a soundbar or seperate surround sound system which I do have but only because I had this from a previous tv, but I never use it because the tv itself is loud enough. The picture quality is great and the colors are very vivid. I have tinkered with the picture a little bit but I just use the preset options that come up. You have four or five different options preset that I find very helpful but if you want different options you can customize the settings. The only option I do not really like is the Auto Motion plus, it is great watching sports but if its on during movies it makes things look weird. Instead of smoothe fluid motion from people in movies you see there movement look unatural. Its kind of hard to describe but this is not really a complaint because you can easily turn off this function. I purchased this tv on Feb 1st and Have not regretted it. I like the quality and the price, cant wait for the superbowl this evening Im sure with my new tv it will be great.

    Excellent TV set

    Posted .

    This TV pulls out an AMAZING picture! and I mean really amazing, it is not Internet connected but IT IS LAN ready, which means you can accomplish the same as if it was internet ready by just connecting it to your LAN through the provided Ethernet input in the back of your TV then setting up a media streaming server on your PC, you have many free options of streaming out there including TVersity, VLC, PS3 Media Server (Which streams to any device not just the PS3) or the PlayOn Media Streamer (I use the latest) I love the fact that it has very good preset picture modes which make it very easy to get a pleasant picture for any taste without playing with the color settings too much, I particularly love the "ScreenFit" feature which allows you to get a FULL picture/aspect ratio when watching movies allowing you to see the movie just as it was seen in the movies, you don't lose anything in either the top or the sides of the screen, the picture size which includes this feature is easily switched between sizes by using the S-Size button on the remote. Sound is about the only thing I can think of that is not great about this TV but it is acceptable, besides if you are planning to place this or any TV on a big room you might as well want to buy a separate sound system for it, for the average TV viewer, the sound is good enough I would say. This is just another great quality product by Samsung, I would definitely recommend this product to anyone!

    Not the best TV for the price.

    Posted .

    Picture Quality: The picture on this tv is very good when you have the smoothing feature disabled (automotion plus 120hz). The reason I gave it a poor rating is because of this feature. Cable is broadcasted at 60hz/60 frames per second. A 120hz display will take these 60 frames per second and display each of them twice. This cuts down on some motion blur but does nothing to improve the overall "smoothness" of the TV. When automotion plus is enabled the television interpolates a new frame between each of the 60 frames per second creating the video like smoothness that you see in the show rooms on these TV's. The problem with this TV is that the automotion lags creating a noticeable stutter every minute or so. This is especially noticeable when watching blu ray or other high resolution (1080p/i) media. The processor in the television seems to not be able to handle load that automotion puts on it. Aside from the stutter there is also alot of blurring and smearing when automotion is running taking away from the clearness of the picture. When you buy this TV you are spending more money for a feature that is really unusable. I tried exchanging my first set for another unit of the same model and found that it had the same glitch. While browsing the tv wall in the store you can actually see how this tv lags behind all of the other tvs on the wall. Its really a shame because the picture is beautiful on this tv. It is the software/processor that does it in. Sound:no complaints. Sound was very good for coming out of tv speakers. Features: Plenty of them...Too bad not all are usable. I ended up trading in this samsung for the sony bravia ex500. first impression was that the picture was not as clear as the samsung, but after a little tweaking (notably turning the sharpness down to around 15 and adjusting the color settings) The sony is just as clear and i find that it handles colors a little bit more realistically. Motionflow and cinemotion on this tv run smooth without the big stutters.

    Wow, fantastic deal!

    Posted .

    I just bought this on sale for $799.00. What a fantastic deal. Picture quality is great, and the 24hz step-down is absolutely phenomenal when watching blu-ray. Extremely smooth and crisp. I gave picture quality a 5/5. It has quite a bit of options, so I'm still learning. This t.v. does everything my 40" Sony Bravia V series does, plus more. It controls and smart-communicates with my PS3 just as well as my Bravia does. It just seems "smarter." 5/5 The only downside is the speaker locations. They're at the bottom of the t.v. and they face down. Sound is a little muffled compared to my Bravia. I gave sound quality a 4/5. It's good, not great. Overall, though, this is a heck of a deal if you can still get it for the ad price of $799. It goes back up to over a grand after Sunday! I'm very pleased with this t.v. My scores may not have all been 5/5, but because of teh great price, i had to give this an overall "excellent."

    Beautiful TV

    We looked around for several months as this was our first HDTV. The picture is excellent compared to similar TV's in its price range and the TV is one of few that has "style" (very attractive). Of course, Blu-ray movies look spectacular on this TV. One con is the sound. You will have to augment the sound with a soundbar or surround sound system of some type, which you should figure into the overall value but is not uncommon for the majority of flat panel TV's. I purchased the Samsung soundbar and am very happy with it. Overall, we've had this TV for over six months and I love it every bit as much as the day we bought it.

    Went from a 32" Insigna LCD, to this 46" Samsung TV. I Love this TV, PS3 games are Awesome, Bluray is Perfect (with full motion on), Sports are Great (may never go to another Live game?) I spent the entire weekend trying every game I own, every Bluray I own and checking out all HD channels. "AVATAR" is stunning in full motion, Even better than 3D in my opinion, colors pop, so smooth, can't wait for the Collectors Edition..... Love this TV!!!!!!!!!
