poor quality model; samsung usually does better

 

I bought this TV at Best Buy a little over three years ago. I chose it over LCD and plasmas since the combined factors of: picture quality; price; and reliability of a CRT were still superior to the other formats at that ...

small footprint

poor color quality

Do not waste your money.

 

I have owned this TV for less than 2 years, and it has completely stopped working. TWICE. The first time it died, we had to pay over $400 to have it repaired. That was about 6 months ago. The TV has once again stopped operating. The unit has never ...

Attractive design, small "footprint."

Defective. Expensive to repair. Poor customer service.

Great set at an excellent price.

 

It was time to buy a new TV, but the new one had to be HDTV compatible. So, after looking around stores at LCD and plasma models and asking for demos in both HDTV and NTSC, I decided that a CRT set would give the best picture when operating in both ...

Excellent picture on both NTSC and HDTV.

Confusing selecting video inputs. Unused ones cannot be disabled.

Very good TV once I figured some things out...

 

I can't add much to the two reviews that are already here, but I want to add one additional fact in regards to gaming. As a test for this TV I ran "James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing" for XBOX through component connectors, and once I got to the main...

Very nice video, tons of inputs, ease of connection to various devices.

Trouble connecting to my PC through DV-I, could only get Component to work.

HDTV From A Gamer's Perspective - Samsung SlimFit

 

Nevermind all the talk of the end of standard television in the next few years as analog signals cease in lieu of digital goodness; if you're a gamer chances are the high-definition era looms much larger as the next generation of gaming begins, led by ...

Supports every possible input, beautiful picture, excellent audio

Doesn't provide as great a picture in standard definition, confusing separation of inputs

Was it just bad luck?

 

I'll try and keep this quick, as the previous review already covers most of the TV's good and bad. My experience with this tv was extremely negative. I bought the set on a Saturday night from Best Buy for $850. Get the TV home, plug my Comcast HD ...

Excellent picture quality, bang for the buck. Depth is only ~13 inches.

"Magnet Spots" on 2 different sets.

Good value for 30" wide-screen tube TV with HDTV tuner

 

UPDATE: 20 OCT 06 - Sadly I must knock down the reliability for this unit as it would no longer turn on. Unfortunately this is two months after the warranty expired. In home repair is quite expensive, and lugging this heavy thing to the shop is a big ...

Features/price ; relative weight ; Better looking design than Sony

Reliability ; Picture not quite as good as Sony ; Can't turn off unnecessary sources
