Slowest way to buy a TV

 

This is not the first TV I've purchased from Newegg. The first arrived in a very timely fashion. It took 13 days from the time I ordered it to arrive at my door. The Iron Egg deal got me a $50 gift card to cover the price reduction.

It's a nice TV.

Slowest way to buy a TV. It took 13 days to get it. Price dropped $50 in that period of time on Newegg.

Surprisingly great TV for the price

 

I purchased this as a Black Friday deal to replace a much more expensive 4 year old 40" Samsung LCD TV in my bedroom. I wanted something larger, and this one perfectly fit the cabinet. I was concerned that it was not 1080p, but I have to say, I am...

A Great TV and a Great Price !!

 

So far, this Samsung Plasma TV has a great picture right out of the box. This is my 1st HDMI TV, and I do highly recommend this TV. I did a lot of research online and the opinion of experts were very positive on this make & model.

GREAT TELEVISION

 

Purchased to replace other TV in my bedroom lift cabinet. It is light weight and fits perfectly in place. Cabling placement on back is a little difficult to position on my lift. Side connections would be better but not a decision point for me. The 720p...

Make sure you're getting what you want!

 

The screen has a glossy finish, rather than a matte finish; therefore it reflects everything in the room making it difficult to see the picture. Also cannot connect HDMI cord without paying an extra $20 bucks a month, and there is only one place to...

Picture quality is good ; Sound is good
