i love this tv connected to my HD cable the image is crispy clear and sound is great so for the people that complain about the sound not being loud enough i can't understand my TV volume is always on 25 or less and it goes all the way up to a 100! great price for the TV. the first TV i received was damaged during shipping the screen was shattered from the inside so was sent a replacement tv without any problem! it does not have lots of outputs but that's fine for me because i am not technology savy and i use this tv for movies and watch cable tv.

I have had this TV plugged in and running my Amazon/Netflix videos all day. So far, no complaints. The picture is amazing, super sharp and vibrant. Anyone having audio or picture issues with this..make sure you turn off the Auto adjust settings. My volume was kind of weird, but I found out it was because auto-adjust was turned on..same with the energy saving settings for the brightness. After those were turned off, it worked just fine. The audio is to be expected for a flat screen TV. A sound bar would be a great addition for anything blu-ray..but basic Netflix/streaming..sound from the TV is just fine. I live in an apartment, so I have to keep it rather quiet.

Okay this is a replacement TV from the Vizio 3D smart 32"Tv that we bought yesterday. (the sound kept going up and down on its own) So far I am more impressed with this Tv than the other. The picture is GREAT, very clear and sharp once we got it to our liking. The sound is good, just a little bit off for my husband, but loud when it is on the low side. The one big down side on this TV, is it only has two HDMI's. But if you don't have that may things to hook up then that shouldn't be a problem. Samsung really does give you a great deal for your money. When we decide to get another TV it will another Samsung.

I bought this TV with the hope that I could hook up my external hard drive through the USB port and play movies. Our old TV has an RGB connection and we would hook up our laptop to watch movies and TV shows from the internet, which was doable but tedious. I had a Samsung TV in New Zealand two years ago and playing movies through USB worked great on that TV so I figured this TV would surely have that same USB feature, afterall this is 2012. I was VERY, VERY disappointed when I hooked up my hard drive and the TV won't play movies through USB, it will only deal with photos and music. And to make matters worse, it doesn't even have an RGB connection so I can't even hook up the laptop, which we used to do on our old Vizio. Yes, our old Vizio TV has trumped this Samsung! So we'll be dragging out the old TV, packaging up the new one and taking it back. Like a couple of other reviewers, I was in a hurry and got this TV on a good deal and now regret it. You get what you pay for, that is, no bells and whistles!!

This was my first flat screen TV. I did EXTENSIVE research before I settled on this Samsung. I adore the LCD picture. It somehow is easier on my eyes. It's bright and vivid, yet the contrast isn't at all harsh. I chose the Samsung name solely based on the company's reputability. I read reviews, asked co-workers, and consulted my baby brother who own's a similar model. It was an easy choice. The value goes without comparison. I started looking at TV's around Black Friday and everything was sold in limited quanities, so I was out of luck. But I still wanted a TV :) Needless to say, Walmart was an exceptional choice. This TV was an impeccable choice! I like the Site To Store option... everywhere else I looked had the right size and price, but not the LCD model I wanted. Or they had exactly what I wanted but their prices were way above my budget. Walmart made it possible for me to get precisely what I wanted without sacrificing a thing!! So glad I took the time, did the research and avoided the impulse buys.

Purchased this as a secondary TV. The picture was fine in our room, but the sound was so disappointing that I ended up returning the TV to the store. I ended up buying a Philips instead, which was cost a little more, had a comparable picture, but had much better sound. Do not buy this Samsung unless you're going to use a HT sound setup or some other external speakers.

Although summary indicated item sold out at my local store, the had several in stock. Price was $428 today, which was very good. Bought this for my mother who does not have high def so cannot comment on its full potential. Good name brand though and great price. Now hurry out and grab one!!

this tv cannot really be run without separate surround sound. The speakers are so bad that you cannot understand what is being said without turning the audio up high. The picture is beautiful...you just have to read lips.

Great price for the quality, the online price was higher than the in-store price and they applied the cheaper price.
