Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Picture quality, smoothness, 3d quality/conversion, connection options
Cons:Weak speakers (not suprising), Samsung support
The Bottom Line: The best picture quality and 3d for its value along with infinite features and connections.
I bought this product from amazon for roughly $3000. My first impression was that the picture quality was fabulous compared to my previously owned 65inch 720p rear projection tv. The tv is very thin (an inch) with a stylish bezel, and I love the swivel design, weighing only about 50 pounds. Everything looks very life-like and bright at 1080p. It's very smooth at a 240hz refresh rate and the 3d looks fabulous, but it only comes with 2 active 3d glasses, which is sometimes annoying with the flickering, common with active glasses. You can also convert 2d to 3d with a push of a button. I wish they'd include more of these glasses. I've watched movies like transformers: dark of the moon, girl with the dragon tatoo and Tron: legacy, and the picture is astonishing. The colors are very vibrant, the picture is sharp, and their blacks are reallyyyy black, thanks to their SmartDimming tech.

This tv has 3 usb ports, 4 hdmi ins, optical out, along with a component and AV in. I dont use any of these but an hdmi to my receiver.
There are so many features on this tv, that I can't even keep track of them. There is a Smart Hub feature that allows you to go on Netflix, hulu, facebook, and web browser. I've watched Netflix a few times but for some reason, the video flashes every 10 minutes. Another bothering thing is that none of the apps in the Smart Hub support 5.1 or surround sound. Thats when I switched to blu-rays.
There's also an app called Allshare that lets you view video and music files from your laptop, but it doesn't mirror your laptop's screen.
The remote is quite sleek and advanced, and has a nice qwerty remote on the end. I love the HDMI-CEC (Anynet+) so I can control things like my PS3 with just my remote.
There is one big complaint: the 3d glasses stopped functioning after about a month. I contacted samsung support and they were horrible, going in circles and asking me to follow procedures that I already tried for hours. In the end, they got a technician to replace the bluetooth module that communicates w/ the 3d glasses and everything was perfect
The sound is like usual for LED tvs: horrible and lacking bass. Instead, I bought an Onkyo HT-S5400 sound system (please read my review for that) and it compliments its appearance quite well.
Overall: for the value, features and performance, it is the best out there. Hope that you don't end up talking w/ samsung support. Just make sure you get better speakers. It makes a big difference in your experience.
