I'm 100% happy with my purchase. How could I not be considering the price/value of this TV? However there were a few surprises I was not expecting... The first surprise was the infrared sensor located UNDER the bezel, rather than built in. My last small Samsung TV (24 inch model) had it built into the bezel and when I discovered that the TV was too large to fit on the counter, under the wall cabinets, I merely removed the base and it stood upright and was very stable, all on it's own. With the sensor located under the bezel, this TV will not stand on it's own. Lucky for me I was planning on mounting it on the wall, anyway. The second surprise was to find that the headphone jack is located on the back of the TV and it is not the standard 3.5mm jack. This is all very inconvenient. The last TV I used in this location had a standard 3.5mm headphone jack located on the side of the TV for easy access. I used this to connect the TV to an auxiliary input jack on a stereo for better sound. I am unable to do this with this TV...at least not until I find a 1.8mm auxiliary cord (at least that's the size I assume I need). The final surprise is the tone that sounds when you turn the TV on and off. This tone is LOUD, no matter what the volume of the TV is set at. That said, I found that I could adjust this in the settings, under melody. For whatever reason, it was set to LOUD. Perhaps that is not the default but I received the TV this way so I assume others may as well. It's an easy fix. I changed mine to medium but you can also turn it off completely. Other than those three minor surprises, I am very pleased with this purchase. It may not have all the specs I'm really looking for in a TV but most TVs of this size don't have all those specs anyway. IMO, this was the best bang for the buck. There are other 19 inch TVs in this price range but none are the quality of Samsung. Overall, I like the quick start up time and the wide viewing angle. The overall picture and sound are fine for the small room I use it in. This was a great value. The price was an ample discount off of the price of a brand new TV and the unit I received showed absolutely no signs that it was not brand new. I would gladly recommend this to anyone who wants a small, quality TV at an outstanding everyday price.
