    AWESOME TV! ! ! GREAT DEAL

    Posted .

    If you are shopping for an HDTV, this is the one! I used to be a store manager for a local electronics retailer (Rosa's Home Store) and I was always partial to Mitsubishi HDTV products because of their reputation and picture quality. I went to Best Buy to purchase a Mitsubishi 73" DLP, but after 2 hours of looking at the pictures and options decided not to. At my house my television is on for 12 hours a day. When looking at DLP TV's, there is a light bulb that requires replacement, and this would make a normal DLP a costly decision. Even with the extended warranty the bulb is only covered one time. At a cost of $200-$600 per bulb this would be a costly venture for me! I have two different friend that are on their 2nd and 3rd bulbs in only 2 years! I explained this to my salesperson and he showed me some plasma model TV's with 20,000 to 40,000 hour life-spans. I don't like the picture on most plasma's because when the picture starts moving fast, the picture quailty is fair at best even with an HDTV signal (unless you spend about $10,000 plus!). While walking around the displays I noticed the Samsung LED DLP and the picture was FABULOUS!!!!! The salesman and I spent some time researching the life-span of the LED lights in the set and found an average life of 20,000 hours! This was perfect for my situation... With our average 12 hour a day use, I figured it would last about 4.5 years!!!!! More important thatn the life of the LED is the PICTURE!!!! The colors on this TV are rich&Deep and the white and black are near perfect! One thing I can guarantee is that you CANNOT be disappointed with how nice the picture is... Even SDTV looks good.... When my kids fired up the Nintendo WII it looked AWESOME! Although this TV may be a couple hundred dollars more than the competitors it is worth every penny~!~ Just the picture quality alone maks the extra money worth it... and not replacing the light bulb is a HUGE SAVINGS! If you take into consideration just buying one light bulb for a normal DLP you make out with the Samsung LED DLP!!!!! With no fan noise, no color wheel replacement, and no bulb replacement THIS IS THE BEST TECHNOLOGY/DEAL ON THE MARKET TODAY! ! !

    Best TV I've set my eyes on but with minor problem

    Posted .

    Bought my Samsung HL-T6187S on 9/23/2007. I came from a 15 year old 32" CRT TV so this was my treat. What can I say, I hold on to my stuff until they are sooooo obsolete or broken. Turned on the TV and my eyes were as giddy as a school boy. The picture was great. Over the Hedge and Star Wars 1080p looked sooooo wonderful. Even the built in TV speakers with SRS turned on is pretty good, for built in TV speakers. Wonderful array of inputs and outputs. It was surprisingly light. The cabinets do feel a slightly flimsy. But, hey, I guess this is what I get for getting technology not fully matured. I too got the halo prism and this ))))))))(((((((( effect. Also one dead pixel. Let me expand. I have one dead black pixel. I understand that is inherent in the manufacturing process. Much like LCD monitors. It even says so in the Warranty disclaimer. No biggie because I have to be watching a bright white scene and be at less than a foot from the screen and really look for it. At 8 feet or more you cannot see it. Ho humm. I still say the disclaimer that a consumer must accept a few dead pixels due to manufacturing limitations and cannot return the product is unacceptable. The consumer must accept a less than perfect product but good enough is unacceptable. I guess I along with the masses have accepted this. Luckily, I still love Samsung and I got their SyncMaster™ 226BW 22" widescreen display with no flaws. Lovely product. That's why I'm sticking with Samsung. Great prices for a great product. So on the ))))))))(((((((( effect. Like the dead pixel I have to be actually less than 6", viewing a bright white background, and at an extreme side angle to see it. At the suggested greater than 8 feet viewing distance this is not noticeable. No problem with that. The biggest complaint I have is the halo prism defect. This is easily producible like the other posters indicated. The senate scene in 300. Where you have the white sky and pillar background and Queen Gorgo is standing and providing a dark foreground. It can also be easily produced via a PC. Put a dark screen in the bottom half with the rest of the screen white. I did it by having an MS-DOS screen in the bottom center half with Windows Explorer in the background. I'm calling Samsung to get this fixed.

    Great TV...Except Purple Haze

    Posted .

    Purchased this product with a 4 year warranty on 1/12/08. Got it home and put in Rush Hour 3. My jaw dropped at how great the picture was compared to my 5 year old Samsung 61" 1080i set. I was very worried about my wide viewing angles and overall TV brightness when I looked at the TV on the showroom floor. At home the TV looked soo much better in my basement, colors really pop out especially in movie mode. I did alot of research on this set and others before I made this purchase and I went with this set because of the lifespan of the LED bulb and the lack of a color wheel. My old set was making this god awful buzzing sound and I am pretty sure the color wheel was to blame. I am very happy with this TV except for one problem. I have the purple/blue haze effect at the bottom center of the screen that several owners seem to be having. Apparantly there is a silver gasket ring somewhere in the light engine that is shiny and reflecting light improperly. All that needs to be done is replace this ring with a flat black one and problem goes away. This is according to a review from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/review/product/B000N53TDM?filterBy=addTwoStar If the link doesn't work, just google search: " rob's TV service Riverhead, NY " It will be the first entry with an amazon address. I really hope that the Certified Samsung repair company that BB sends my way knows about this issue and has the parts to fix it. I will give them 25ish days to try and fix it. Otherwise I will have to return the set because the effect is very distracting. I hope not, other than that one flaw I absolutely love this TV.

    Awesome DLP HDTV

    Posted .

    I had bought this to be used with my new entertainment system comprising of Samsung HLT6187S 61" Slim LED Engine 1080p DLP HDTV, Sony STR-DG910 7.1 Channel Home Theater Receiver, Bose® Acoustimass® 10 Series IV home entertainment speaker system, Pioneer DV-400V HDMI Multi Region DVD Player, Rocketfish Universal Wireless Rear Speaker Kit and a custom HTPC. Before buying a HDTV, ALWAYS do research. Buying an HDTV these days is really depended on preference, budget and use. Are you looking for a nice BIG TV? Are you looking for a smaller one? Is this going to a bedroom? Or a family room entertainment system. Samsung's LED powered DLP HDTV was my pick. I originally had the newest Sony Bravia XBR 52" LCD HDTV in mind, but that idea fell through when i saw the INSANE prices for 52" LCD HDTV. 52" was not worth $4k. This is the ultimate bang for your buck deal. Samsung's LED powered DLP TV makes it the best among DLP TVs. The cost is of this HDTV was excellent compared to LCD/Plasma HDTVs. 61" for $2k was a great deal. I have the highest cable package, with High Definition Channels and movies. Things look incredible sharp. Even normal 480i broadcast channels look good. Of course you need to be about 7-9 feet away from the TV. Any closer and you WILL see artifacting, but this applies to ANY HDTV over 40". The LED powered light is probably the best thing. Anyone who has in depth knowledge about LED powered lights will know that this is the future of lighting. Extremely low power consumption (compared to predecessors) and incredible brightness. The ONLY down fall to DLP TV's is their viewable angle. To get the best picture quality, you have to be looking at your TV from the front. If you are looking at it from the far side, the picture will be dark. But when you are in front this TV delivers the best picture quality. Black is BLACK, unlike LCD HDTVs, and there are no problems with motion artifacting and refresh rates. You can force 16:9 AR, or 4:3 AR. I hooked up this DLP HDTV to my HTPC and Windows looks incredible sharp. I can watch movies and anime on my computer on the 61" HDTV and they look absolutely incredible. The HDTV is FULL 1080p resolution. So my computer is displaying 1920x1080 resolution. Nothing smaller. Playing games is awesome as well. Recently installed Portal on my HTPC and had a blast playing it on my HDTV. This Samsung HLT6187S 61" Slim LED Engine 1080p DLP HDTV has a cool white light right underneath the TV power button, and it lights up when the TV is on. Customizable as well to be [on] while the TV is off, or [on] all the time or [off] all the time. It makes a really cool shut down and power down sound. Absolutely love it. HDTV is extremely lightweight. Very easy to carry with two people. This thing is just too massive for one person to get a good grip. I was skeptical on buying such an expensive HDTV from Best buy online store, I was thinking about going to Amazon and picking it up, but I bit my lip and bought it. Boy was I impressed. The shipping was not only on time, but the shipping service gave me TWO courtesy calls to confirm shipping time and date. The people came exactly as scheduled and were VERY friendly. They helped me open the box, unpack it and power it up. I had to test everything about the TV before they could even leave. They made sure I was happy with the TV. This TV has plenty of HDMI and Component inputs, it has optical audio input. Boot up time for the TV is very nice. Takes about 3-4 seconds for the picture to appear. And 2 seconds for it to shut down. Anyways, I got a 62" TV stand for this TV, I suggest that if you plan on buying this TV, to do the same. Bigger stand will really make the TV stand out.

    LED?

    Posted .

    Perhaps I'm crazy, but I purchased this set "sight unseen." Why? For the LED light engine and Samsung's DLP track record. My previous set was a 61" JVC D-ILA using 3 LCOS chips and a standard lamp. At four years I was on my 3rd lamp. At about $200 a "pop," this will add up after the 4yr extended warranty ends (this kind of product is one of the few items for which I always recommend the extended warranty). The set didn't survive a service visit (oh, well), and it was time to shop. I avoided the DLP based sets in the past because I didn't like the idea of the color wheel - noise, rainbow, etc. My D-ILA experience then soured me to the lamp. The DLP chip itself appealed to me since it is one of the few technologies that inherently have no burn-in problems. The LED set solves these issues by combining the DLP chip with the 3-color LED light engine. This eliminates the lamp/color wheel combination and allows the DLP technology to really shine. The LED will likely never need to be replaced, unless you run your set for 833 days non-stop. Power use and heat generation are reduced vs. a standard lamp, translating to additional noise reduction as the fans don't need to run as fast or as often. Another LED perk is that the set will turn on and off much faster than most other lamp based RPTVs. After initial testing in my home, I found this Samsung set didn't disappoint. There is little remorse from my risky sight-unseen purchase. If I had to do it again, I would step up to the HL-T6189S to gain the HDMI 1.3 support. Even running HDMI 1.2, I find Blu-Ray movies and games on my PS3 and HD content from my Motorola DCT look fantastic. There are likely other sets out there that perform a little better, or that have more exacting color accuracy/consistency. But few, if any of them have the potential to last as long and cost as little to own. If you aren't running HD content, the Samsung does an acceptable job with high-quality SD programs. If your reception is spotty, or if your cable company pushes poor or over-compressed signal, the Samsung (or any HD set for that matter) may not be the right choice for you. Of course, you could just abandon SD - you likely will want to after you're exposed to HD. A minor quibble is that the remote does not provide direct access buttons for each video input. The two-button cycling can be confusing for some (one "input" button and one "HDMI" button). With one of the latest HDMI AV receivers you can avoid this issue by just using one HDMI input for everything. The remote also has a backlight that doesn't illuminate the most used buttons. It's a very small issue, but a glaringly poor design. I highly recommend this unit and it's step-up HDMI 1.3 companion. Enjoy!

    Best DLP on the market!

    Posted .

    I helped my Dad purchase this TV to replace an old tube TV that finally died. He was very uncertain about new technology, but I did my research and this TV just stood out from all the rest. I'm so glad we got it too. This TV is too good to believe, the picture is the best of any TV I've seen. Beats plasma and LCD grainy pictures hands down. Color is rich and very good. But it does take some time to setup the picture correctly. Out of the box, these TVs are set to factory standards which may or may not match your room's ambient light structure. Spend some time in the menus and get familiar with the settings. Try a lot of them and you'll find that you can make the picture closer to perfect than any other TV you've ever owned. I also connected up a new upscaling DVD player, and was amazed at how good those old DVD movies looked. I won't buy Blu-Ray as that format will die along with HD DVD very soon. Better HD delivery is coming soon. I last hooked up an Xbox360 and was suprized at the response this TV gave the game console. I've played consoles on DLP sets before and hated the lag they give the games. This TV doesn't do that. Lastly, I'm amazed at all the "bulb replacement" arguements on this TV in the reviews here. This TV uses LED bulbs to make light, not the old bulbs. It has a 10,000 hour life expected out of the LED bulbs. That's over 10 years for the average viewer. That and the electricity this set uses is so much lower than other DLP sets. I wouldn't recommend any other HD set than this one or one of the smaller Samsung LED based DLP sets.

    Incredible Display!

    Posted .

    Purchased in June, I was leary of the life of the LED sources, and that still remains to be seen. This display, in every possible mode, is color correct, deep blacks, strong contrasts (even using 'cool 1' dynamic settings). Had to reduce contrast to 50, and have a very bright (large picture-window) viewing room. Upscaling to 1080 only on composite inputs. HDMI interfaces are flawless with some delay in synch/switching. Similar delay in startup of the set, which was originally irritating. Had to return first set in 10 days after spike from passing T-storm put 'tracks' etched across the DLP chip. Bought Panamax and connected set via delay-switched outlets instead of always on. Time will tell regarding the light sources, and costs in replacement, when needed. But for sheer HD (and non-HD) picture enjoyment, this Samsung is incredible!

    Great Center-Piece For Home Theater

    Posted .

    I purchased this item in September, 2007 as the center-piece of my basement media room. The room is in a new home and was specifically configured for home theater, with added sound isolation insulation and built-in wiring for up to 7.1 surround sound. I looked at a variety of different home theater options including, high-def front projection, DLP rear projection and LCD/Plasma. Ultimately, I concluded that the DLP rear projection provided the best combination of price, screen size, resolution, picture quality and room flexibility (although a basement room, my media room is windowed and I prefer to watch sports with the shutters open and the room at least partially lighted). After much research, this Samsung became my choice primarily due to comparative picture quality and the solid state reliability of the LED light engine. After 4 months of living with this set, I have no regrets at all. In combination with this set, I purchased a Pioneer Elite surround sound receiver, JVC speakers, Toshiba HD-DVD, Sony Blu-Ray and XBox 360 Elite as components. I use a Comcast HD, 2-tuner, DVR box as my TV input. The Samsung delivers great pictures from all sources. I used the Magnolia Home Theater guys to spec out my system and to install and set-up my system, including a programmable Logitech universal remote. I highly recommend their service - it was less than 10% of the total purchase price and saved much frustration in trying to set everything up myself. I have had no problems with the functioning of the set. The accessible video adjustment functions through the menu system are somewhat limited. I did not have a professional calibration done, but for obsessive videophiles, it might be worth it. The built-in sound is reputed to be disappointing, but since I always use my receiver, it is a non-issue for me. Frankly, I would have preferred a pure monitor version with no tuner and no native speakers to further reduce cost and weight.

    Great TV!

    Posted .

    I purchased this tv around Labor Day and so far it's been great. Pros include the light engine over color wheel and light bulbs, awesome 10,000:1 contrast ratio for viewing in a bright room, great picture in HD. My only complaint is that there is a slight controller to screen delay when I'm playing games on my PS/2. I read many complaints while researching this product, but most of them were very nit-picky. For some reason, people tend to write reviews only if they had a bad experience and that usually gives the product a bad rating. I never knew there could be such a difference between cable or satellite and HD. It's like night and day on this tv. The sound could be better. If you're forking out this much dough for a TV, then you should be running it through a home theater system. I bought an extended service plan just in case, but so far all is well.

    Great HDTV for the dollar

    Posted .

    After researching plasmas, LCD's, and DLP's, I came to the conclusion that Samsung's DLP TV with the LED engine was the way to go for me. I visited the store several times comparing many TV's and even adjusting settings. To me, these DLP's just offer the most vivid colors and best picture for the dollar. With the new LED's, you'll never have to replace a bulb. You'll never be able to hang this on a wall, but the size of rear projection TV's have shrunk incredibly since I bought my first widescreen TV 5-yrs. ago. It also doesn't hurt that you can get a much bigger screen for your dollar compared to plasmas and LCD's. In my opinion, these DLP's offer better pictures than either of those other TV's. For anyone looking to purchase a new HDTV, I highly recommend checking this one out. I do have few complaints, but they're minor. One, there's no picture-in-picture available. Two, I get a very slight buzzing sound when the screen is blue with no signal but it goes away when a signal is present. It's really not a big deal, but something to be aware of. Overall, great TV.

    Great all round

    Posted .

    So I bought this tv about 3 months ago, and its amazing. I was shocked by how little it weighed. Carrying it up 3 flights of stairs was effortless. The LED technology is brilliant and the tv itself looks very high class. The border around the screen is so thin that when watching TV you hardly notice it. HD Prog w/ some hdmi cords is hands down the best I've seen. I work as a FiOS tech, and I see plasma and LCD tv's on a daily basis. This TV easily competes with the best most expensive TVs out there. Game mode seems like kind of a waste as the picture got darker and harder to see, but its all adjustable. Xbox live/gaming is seamless. The engine has no issue keeping up with mlb2k8. 3 hdmi ports allows the best picture on any device I have, without swapping cords around. There was one flaw with the TV, and it was a manufactured error, of course covered under the warranty. About 3 inches up from the bottom of the screen I noticed (when the screen was white and no image movement) a fairly consistent line of smudges. Upon closer look it appeared they were on the inside of the picture screen. I called Samsung and they set up an appointment with a local contractor in my area who is coming out to replace the whole screen next week. A little inconvenient, but overall I'm a very happy customer

    A Great TV

    Posted .

    We're retired, and one of my husband's "hobbies" had been to visit Best Buy stores and examine the latest large screen TV's. We had a 14-year-old large screen projection Hitachi that was functioning OK, although when I sat in my favorite chair I was bothered by reflections from the drapes on the opposite wall. However, when the people on the screen started turning blue and yellow, we knew it was time for a replacement. I had researched HDTV on the web and looked at them enough to decide that the LCD's were super expensive when the size got large and had a screen-door effect. The plasma's were sleek looking but also expensive in the large size we wanted. We weren't aware of Samsung's new approach to projection TV, and when I saw it I knew it was the one! Wonderful colors and clarity, and it looks even better in our den. Great price for what you get. Salesman and delivery by Best Buy were excellent. We have been surprised at how good our collection of DVD's look, even though we're playing them on an existing player. And no more reflections from the drapes! Everyone who visits remarks on the great picture, with some saying they want to buy the same model.

    Very Satisfied

    Posted .

    Picture on this TV is excellent. I have a very bright room and I am pleased that there is no reflection visable while viewing. Plasma screens seem to have reflections in bright viewing situations so this set works extremely well in this setting. I decided on the LED technology even though several of the sales people said that it may be good to wait until the technology had a chance to be proven. Time will tell on the reliability. I do like the idea that the bulb will not burn out and that the unit is very quiet. I would have bought picture in picture if it was available on this model. I would also like a setting that allows the closed caption to be enabled when the TV/Stereo system is muted. All my other TV's work like that, but this one does not. The sound system is marginal so it is best to have a stereo system with it. All that being said I am extremely pleased with the picture quality and clarity. They are coming out to calibrate it next month but I cannot imagine how they will improve the out of the box piture quality. We will see. Overall a great TV!!!"

    Excellent Picture for the buck!!

    Posted .

    Purchased the TV about 1 1/2 months ago, but waited to have Best Buy calibrate the TV, before writing a review. Something most people don't know, is most manufacturers boost the blue setting up, to make the picture appear really bright, especially for the sales floor. I opted to pay for my TV to be calibrated (requires 100 hours burn-in time before they come out). Before the calibration, I was not able to get very deep blacks, and I would lose some detail on my whites, no matter what I did with the adjustments. The Geek Squad came out with some very expensive gear and accessed the TV's service menu to adjust the settings and get colors as neutral as possible. After the calibration. the results: even better clarity picture and very vivid colors, the blacks really appear black, and the whites look better than ever, with greater detail. For programming, I went with DirecTV's HDDVR and premier package for their 70+ HD channels and 250+ STD Def channels. There's almost always something to watch in HD.

    Good HD TV - not so good on Standard Digital cable

    Posted .

    This TV is great for the HD future. Picture in B.B. store was the best of all TVs. The LED technology sold me after tons of problems with the old Gateway 56"HD TV that had a bulb type light engine. Of coure, this TV is real good for watching HD cable TV, blu-ray DVD, game systems & regular DVD. However, standard digital TV viewing needs an improvement - picture not great. This TV has many techno features for video improvement such as "dne", but none of them help the standard cable viewing. I wound up turning off all the features after trying all the options. Since my cable service includes 300 standard channels and only 15 HD channels, it is an issue. Plus all the On Demand programs are non-HD as well. So for HD viewing - thumbs up. Non-HD viewing - thumbs down.........(3.5 Stars)

    Best HDTV on the market

    Posted .

    We have really enjoyed the TV. It has become a great centerpiece to our home theater. It is a very attractive TV and looks great in our livingroom. It is thin and looks even thinner than what it is. This TV truely shines when it comes to picture quality. It has amazing colors, exceptionally deep blacks, brilliant whites and a very bright screen for a DLP TV. Both movies and video games play exceptionally on it because of reduced motion blur. Even though a number of people have said this model has a problem with rainbow effect we have not experienced it. Sound on this TV is also very good. We do not have it hooked up to a surround sound system but yet the quality of the sound when we watch movies is fantastic. The only thing that would make it better would be to actually purchase surround sound. Overall we truly recommend this tv to anyone who is looking to buy a HDTV. We looked at all DLP's and LCD's and within our price range this was the absolute best.

    AWESOME, one word says it all

    Posted .

    I am not go going to waste your time and get technical here. I have had her running for about 8 months now and love every second with this set. Blacks are great!!! Here is the killer thing, it draws less than 100 watts and almost no amps according to my meter. I have noticed a drop in my electric bill. It replaced a old school Pioneer PDP502mx 50" Plasma. RUns super cool, no noise, great menu, lots of options and settings, easy on screen idiot proof settings etc... I bought it through the best buy site and picked it up a fwe hours later and was watching tv by diner. I was in the market for months and looked at almost every dlp from 60" and up. The slightly smaller screen vs. the mits. sizes was worth the sacrifice, would have been to big in the living room. Another nice feature is the side inputs vs. on the back of the set. Very slim!!! JUST BUY THE SAMSUNG LED DLP, WHATEVER SIZE WORKS FOR YOUR ROOM. Brian in CT

    Excellent DLP

    Posted .

    I'm in the TV business, so I know a bit about HDTV's. I did a lot of research and shopping around before buying and after a month I have absolutely no regrets on my decision to buy a Samsung. I have always been a Sony fan, but I have to admit this TV is very nice. The viewing angle is excellent for a projection, and it is light and thin. The menu's and hookups are very good, and the LED engine is much better than the color wheel technology. For a 61" screen, the picture is absolutely fantastic!! I would highly recommend this TV if you're looking for a 55" or larger TV.

    I really am enjoying this hdtv more that I thought I would. It is a very handsome looking tv, too. The picture quality is better than what I saw in the store. I am amazed at how great the hdtv stations look. I am looking forward to when all is hdtv programming.The color is so vibrant and rich as well as very realistic. I cannot imagine why we would even consider calibrating this tv. It does not need it. The led technology is a big improvement over the older lamps and color wheel. Long lasting and more economical to run. I hope Samsung makes a 73" or larger someday of this type of tv.I would get a 73" for our large living room and put this terrific 61" in our large bedroom. Very ideal. I strongly recommend this tv especially comparing the price with other technologies. The picture is as good or better than the best lcd or plasmas that I have seen. Sincerely, Mlynn
