  • HDTV From A Gamer's Perspective - Samsung SlimFit

    Jan 6, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Supports every possible input, beautiful picture, excellent audio
    Cons: Doesn't provide as great a picture in standard definition, confusing separation of inputs

    Summary: Nevermind all the talk of the end of standard television in the next few years as analog signals cease in lieu of digital goodness; if you're a gamer chances are the high-definition era looms much larger as the next generation of gaming begins, led by ... read more

  • poor quality model; samsung usually does better

    Feb 16, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: small footprint
    Cons: poor color quality
    unreliable
    heavy

    Summary: I bought this TV at Best Buy a little over three years ago.  I chose it over LCD and plasmas since the combined factors of: picture quality; price; and reliability of a CRT were still superior to the other formats at that ... read more

  • Do not waste your money.

    Sep 7, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Attractive design, small "footprint."
    Cons: Defective. Expensive to repair. Poor customer service.

    Summary: I have owned this TV for less than 2 years, and it has completely stopped working. TWICE. The first time it died, we had to pay over $400 to have it repaired. That was about 6 months ago. The TV has once again stopped operating. The unit has never ... read more

  • Great set at an excellent price.

    Feb 9, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent picture on both NTSC and HDTV.
    Cons: Confusing selecting video inputs. Unused ones cannot be disabled.

    Summary: It was time to buy a new TV, but the new one had to be HDTV compatible. So, after looking around stores at LCD and plasma models and asking for demos in both HDTV and NTSC, I decided that a CRT set would give the best picture when operating in both ... read more

  • Very good TV once I figured some things out...

    Jan 20, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Very nice video, tons of inputs, ease of connection to various devices.
    Cons: Trouble connecting to my PC through DV-I, could only get Component to work.

    Summary: I can't add much to the two reviews that are already here, but I want to add one additional fact in regards to gaming. As a test for this TV I ran "James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing" for XBOX through component connectors, and once I got to the main ... read more

  • Was it just bad luck?

    Oct 31, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent picture quality, bang for the buck. Depth is only ~13 inches.
    Cons: "Magnet Spots" on 2 different sets.

    Summary: I'll try and keep this quick, as the previous review already covers most of the TV's good and bad. My experience with this tv was extremely negative. I bought the set on a Saturday night from Best Buy for $850. Get the TV home, plug my Comcast HD ... read more

  • Good value for 30" wide-screen tube TV with HDTV tuner

    Aug 26, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Features/price; relative weight; Better looking design than Sony
    Cons: Reliability; Picture not quite as good as Sony; Can't turn off unnecessary sources

    Summary: UPDATE: 20 OCT 06 - Sadly I must knock down the reliability for this unit as it would no longer turn on. Unfortunately this is two months after the warranty expired. In home repair is quite expensive, and lugging this heavy thing to the shop is a big ... read more

    Pros: Initially it appears a good set for the $$
    Cons: Only appears to last for 2 - 3 years.

    Summary: I wonder if the positive reviews listed here are from users who have had this tv set for any length of time. I thought it was a great value for the money when I bought it. the picture wasn't bad, and it came with good features. This month I have owned ... read more

  • Had this less than 3 years

    Pros: Size was perfect for the shelves in our house.
    Cons: It is now dead, will not work, had it less than 3 years...

    Summary: It was worked fine, until this morning - nothing - it's dead. Press the power button, and nothing happens. Called Samsung, they gave us a repair shop phone number and address. I have a bad feeling about ... read more

  • I had this only 3 years

    Jul 5, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: When the television worked it was a great television.
    Cons: The television had issues since day one.

    Summary: I bought this TX-R3079 a little over 3 years ago and the television decided to not power on today. I have read many forums and reviews and would advise against purchasing this television. If you decide to purchase this television then I would definitely ... read more

  • Nice clear images; but, weak HDTV tuner

    Apr 30, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Crisp clear images typical of a CRT
    Cons: Weak internal HDTV tuner

    Summary: All external sources display very nicely including an older Samsung STB. The internal HDTV tuner looses signals, stumbles and de-pixelates (watch the pixels crumble). The outside off-the-air antenna was rotated and tuned to it's strongest signal to get ... read more
