HD Picture Quality: First off, know that the 120Hz and 240Hz feature on the Samsung LED TVs have been greatly improved from the first edition. The feature is intended to reduce judder and smooth out the picture from that annoying jerky effect. But...

The Samsung UN46C9000 46″ 3D TV is the smaller cousin of the Samsung UN55C9000 and is a member of Samsung's premium 9000 Series of LED 3D TVs. With an ultra-slim profile, a sleek and sophisticated styling, and all the bells and whistles from Samsung...

Blue tones from the LED edge lighting are slightly oversaturated in the C9000 as is overall saturation. Click on our Picture Settings here to see our recommendations on how to calibrate. Two of the rumored and real flaws of edge lit LED are uneven...

Just Amazing!


If your old LCD tv has started to fade this is truly the next generation of entertainment. Internet, GREAT picture and sound, cool remote and stunning brushed edge brings class into any home. Top notch and a pure joy! I love it!

Picture quality is what one would expect from an LED TV. The colors are bright, the sound thats delivered is better than what I would have expected. I have a 5.1 surround sound system and still find myself turning it off to hear only the tv's sound. Th

I guess the only negative thing would be trying to convert the base to hang it on the wall. Nothing is wrong with this TV. Even the price has come down

Great picure as long as it lasted.


It will be a cold day in hell when I deal with these three again. Updated on Oct 14, 2011

Great picture

Two months after purchase the picture went black. The Geek squad looked and said it needed a main board. One week passes to get part and install to find different problem. One week passes to get part, new TCON board that did not fix the problem. Geek

video quality is amazing but stopped working in 2 days


Amazing picture and video as long as it lasted

Suddenly stopped working. Trying to get support for a brand new tv under warranty from samsung has been a nightmare. Still waiting for service center to call me after 2 days. Not fun after spending ~$2K

Consumer review by:

Picture is a perfect 10.


We have this model in our showroom and its my second favorite tv, right next to its bigger brother, the 55 inch. It took me 2 weeks to figure out how to turn it on without using its remote. Located on the center of the base is a touch sensitive panel...

Unimaginable picture quality. Unbelievably thin. Wi-fi capable. Fantastic app database. Netflix Streaming works like a charm. Sleek and shiny finish. Revolutionary remote. 3D Compatible

PRICE. Heavy base. Small touchscreen on the remote. Screen is susceptible to glares

Superb Picture but hard to use


The picture is the best you'll ever get - amazing! At times the actors on screen appear to be in the room with me! Samsung threw in all kinds of geeky features but left out one simple one. I expected channel search/setup to finish with found channels...

Eye popping video. Bright colors. Wide viewing angle. Amazing apps. I love direct streaming of Netflix straight to the TV. Styling is beautiful! Very handy to have video & audio appear on the remote control itself. Includes a second "granny" remote

Expected features missing. Hard to use. Difficult setup. Must charge remote every night. Poor online support - posted questions not answered. Live chat personnel not knowledgable about product. Very expensive
