Great picture quality and easy to set up

 

We bought this for work to use at trade shows etc and the TV is super lightweight and easy to set-up. The picture quality is great and Samsung is a brand you can always trust.

Good picture

 

This is our main living room TV. At first I thought I wasn\'t going to like Samsung. I am very picky about color reproduction and this TV does an excellent job with that. The only thing I am not thrilled about are the adjustment button on the TV...
