Customer Review: WOW! Great price, great service, AWESOME picture!
We did our research for months and this was the "best of breed" for us. We wanted a display that would do it all, games, HD, PC, HD-3D, and this was the ticket! The first unit that arrived was defective, visible line along the bottom of the screen which looked like a manufacturing defect and did bend the image. Amazon was very cool and shipped out a replacement in three days. WOW, great customer service there! We now have HDTV, Karoke, Wii, PS2, XBox, PC, Laptop, DVD Player-1080p upscaled, all connected and not a problem with any of them! This unit will not hang on the wall but the slimline footprint is great and it only weighs 50 pounds. Lots of connections on the side, we connected the optical out to our home theater (JVC) and processing the 5.1 surround sound is done very well. Fast action sports broadcasts in HD look spectacular on this TV, no ghosting or image bleeding as with our plasma TV. Overall we are very satisfied with the unit, the finish is very rich looking. We were worried about the light that comes out of the back of the TV during operation which is normal but it didn't become an issue at all. The images are crisp and sharp and there is a ton of customization that can be done with the picture through the menu tools. I am sure that someone will find fault with this display but that won't be us!! This was our first purchase through Amazon and they came through with flying color!!
Customer Review: Great HD TV
This is my first HDTV. I chose this for the long LED life, no color wheel, and basically great bang for the buck. The dimensions are accurate and it fit perfect into our armoire. The sound is great even though it's completely enclosed in the armoire, but we had to experiment with the different audio settings. I believe we settled on "gaming". There is a small text streaking effect, it's hard to describe. It's really only visible with white text on a black background. Samsung provides a 1 year in home warranty with this TV and a technician will be out in a couple of days to help diagnose the problem or replace the set. I cannot tell you how awesome this is. Buy a TV online, encounter problem, technician arrives to home as part of standard Samsung warranty. If you are like me, buying a TV like this online might be a little nerve wracking, but rest assured Electronics Expo and Samsung will take care of you. I wasn't even on hold at the retailer or the manufacturer for more than 30seconds on a Saturday to receive this kind of service, and no transferring me around... Awesome. when watching the TV you have a lot of ways to adjust the picture. After getting the contrast and brightness set the picture quality is great, exactly what I expected. DVDs up converted to 1080P from the Samsung 1080P DVD player look really good. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this item or the retailer to anyone. The screen is plenty bright, but we typically watch this TV at night, so I cannot comment on viewing in a brightly lit room or on any glare problems. But in our situation we have not seen any. Cheers.

Customer Review: Now that's a deal!!!
Very happy with the service. Delivery was fine, and I received a refund after the price dropped. Good job Amazon! As far as the TV goes; setup was easy, picture is great, sound is good, 720p is a non issue for me, glare problems are minimal even in my south facing family room, and my HD reception is amazing with my good old attic antenna....I mean AMAZING!!! This is a very good product and I see little reason to spend substantially more money for marginal improvements. BUY IT.
Customer Review: Awesome plasma for the money
Panasonic's 50" Viera plasma is an astounding hdtv, the picture is excellent with great black levels and rich, realistic colors when calibrated. I have owned a 1080p lcd (which btw cost me twice as much) for the past year and this plasma is superior in every way. Burn-in and image retention only occur when settings are cranked, i.e. vivid mode, and it is pretty much non-existent under the cinema settings which look better anyway. Yes, it is 720p but at this size it is not a problem; the price gap is huge for the full 1080p and I don't recommend the pricier model unless you happen to have the extra cash. Overall I must say this is one of the best deals out there for an hdtv with size and quality. DVD's, Blu-Rays and hi-def games all look great on this Viera and I could not ask for more. In other words, just buy it.

Customer Review: Not full HD
Be aware that the highest setting you will get with this cable is 1080i, not 1080p. Also, the description does not state it is HDMI 1.3 compliant. This is all fine if you have a 720p or 1080i set.
Customer Review: No difference between this cable & the expensive ones - don't waste $$ - buy this one.
When I was considering buying these cables to connect my new TV to my cable box and PS3, I was absolutely dumbfounded by the difference in prices. As you can see, this cable is dirt cheap and you almost pay more for the shipping price than you do for the cable. When I went to the electronics store, they had a selection of these cables and none of them went for less than $75.00. I decided to be patient and shop the price as it saved me $130.00. Even the brand-named cables advertised on amazon are no different than this cable. I can't explain the vast disparity in the prices but am sure glad I checked here first. Buy this one, and save $70.00.

Customer Review: Worth the wait? You betcha!
When I told my wife I wanted an HD Plasma she was happy to oblige...the only catch was we had to save up for it so we would have it all paid for when we bought it. What did that mean? We had to save for a YEAR! Was it worth it? You betcha!
It's amazing how much HDTVs improved in just 12 months! Had we bought it a year before we would have gone with a 720p Samsung like my parents have (also a fantastic TV), but that extra year helped prices go down. We paired up the TV with the Blu-Ray Player found in the Sony PS3 and man does it pop! You love sports? You absolutely have to get a Plasma...don't let anyone trick you into getting an LCD. The plasmas refresh their picture four times faster than any LCD. Don't get caught in the blur! Everything about this TV is awesome. Get it! Get it from Amazon! The delivery service is impeccable. There's no tax depending on where you live. You can't find it cheaper anywhere else. This TV is the way to go! You won't regret it. The touch of color is awesome!
Finally, no TV is ever perfect. The only negative I can think of about this TV is that it puts out a lot of heat. Just be aware that if you live somewhere hot and you're going to put it in a smaller room, you will definitely feel the difference.
Customer Review: Great TV
I recommend this TV and I recommend Amazon as a vendor. Initially I ordered the 46" LCD Samsung (650), it had intermittent display problems so I sent it back. Meantime my "research" revealed that many authorities prefer the picture quality of plasma to LCD. So I opted for this one, and I'm very happy with it. I'm convinced it offers a better picture than the LCD I started with, though it's difficult to say why. The LCD seemed to have deeper blacks (when viewed head-on, at least) and it was surely brighter. But the picture on this plasma seems less like a big flat computer monitor and more like a CRT. It has more depth of color. It can reproduce action sequences without gimmicky options like 120hz. In terms of screen size, I think 50" is plenty big if you intend to watch both TV shows and movies in a room of moderate size. TV shows (and ads) are designed to grab your attention on a small screen; with a 50" screen, the effect can be overpowering. But if you're looking for a dedicated movie screen, I'd consider a larger one, to give letterbox movies their full advantage.
SAMSUNGs new LCD TVs come with Touch of ColorTM, a striking design that adds a hint of color to the bezel and transforms your TV into a work of art. Youll also have picture-perfect images with brilliant color and sharp details. Enjoy a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience with the SAMSUNG LN19A650 HDTV.
Customer Review: Samsung Red TOC
I did my homework before deciding on my Samsung TOC in red.Buying from Amazon because I've been very satisfied with their service and no one else could beat their price.I saved over $100.00 through them on this TV comparitively and as for the top of the line compared to the store brand (& who knows what company makes them!) it ran me $82.00 more to have the set with the best reputation.Needless to say I am most impressed with the picture as is any one who sees it,company comes and stares and loses interest in our 53" big screen! The color & contrast are out of this world! It is in my kitchen & only hooked up to an antennia, it immediately pulled in more channels.The touch of red is seen from the side, it is subtle, but this TV is beautiful in design.
Customer Review: excellent tv
The only thing I find wrong with the Samsung LN19A650 is when you look at it next to the LN22A650. The three extra inches of screen make a BIG difference. Both have GREAT pictures . I hope to exchange my 19 for a 22 inch!
With over 1,000 stations in more than 200 markets broadcasting digital television as of 2003, 9 out of 10 households can now receive free high-definition (HDTV) signals when using the right antenna in conjunction with an integrated HDTV (or with a set-top box and an HD-ready television). Most antennas are large and unwieldy and need to be mounted outdoors or in a cramped attic. This is not an option if you live in an apartment or condo, or if you don't want the hassle of installing an antenna yourself. The solution? A quality indoor antenna that can pick up all local HDTV channels; one that will look great next to your television, and one that is easy to install: Terk's HDTVi indoor antenna.
At the time of its release, the HDTVi was (and may yet be) the only indoor HDTV antenna optimized for both UHF and VHF reception, channels 2 to 69. The HDTVi elegantly solves the aesthetic challenge of integrating a log-periodic-type element assembly in an indoor antenna. It's tuned for optimum HDTV reception with a unique design that uses log-periodic elements and dipoles for receiving both UHF and VHF HDTV broadcasts, bringing you more stations than lesser antennas.
You can easily route the antenna's output cable in 2 directions (front or back) for flexible cable management, and the antenna connects easily to your set-top box or television (integrated HDTV--with built-in ATSC tuner--required for direct connection).
Its high gain picks up distant stations and its high back-to-front ratio rejects unwanted signals. You can mount the UHF antenna element vertically or horizontally, as experience dictates.
What's in the Box
Antenna with integrated 75-ohm cable, instruction manual, and warranty information.
Customer Review: An indoor antenna without amplification isn't worth the money you spend on it!
Get this one instead:
Terk HDTVa Indoor Amplified High-Definition Antenna for Off-Air HDTV Reception
It uses an included signal amplifier to boost VHF signals by 12db and UHF signals by 11db, and is only about $8.00 more. You'll get more for your money, and you won't feel like you've been ripped off.
Customer Review: Is HDTV antenna worth the money?
I have bought a HDTV recently. I thought if I had a digital HDTV antenna, I could pull in more digital channels. I was disappointed to find that the Terk HDTV indoor antenna failed to do so. In fact, the old Radio Shack enhanced indoor antenna gave me better reception.

Customer Review: A++
I bought this as a second set for the recreation room and I couldn't be happier. For concerts and movies this set is spectacular. With proper placement and a little bit of care, a plasma of this size cannot be beat for entertanment value and all the drawbacks of plasmas are taken care of, all that is left is the pluses. The colours, contrast, black levels and features are top notch. Of course, if you only have one set and you want to use it for gaming, sports programming, news, and other programming with lots of static, high contrast graphics, you need to be extra careful, as burn-in is still being reported. how I use it, I don't even see any image retention, even less than on my LCD, or CRT. I don't think pixel shifting is the solution, I don't even engage it most of the time.
The set is solidly built, but the speakers are a bit of a let-down. Good enough at moderate level, but a home theatre seems almost a requirement to match this TV.
For those in the know, 720p is just as good as 1080p. Cable TV, of course, will not carry 1080p for many years. Just consider that usually blu-ray content comes in 2.35:1 aspect ratio. It does NOT have 1080 lines of vertical resolution, more like 738, each of which this set can display in a zoomed-in, full screen picture (as you SHOULD view it with a plasma). If, on the other hand you want a 50 inch LCD, most experts don't consider them equal to the plasma in picture quality at this size. So there, the extra $500 or more you'd pay for a 1080p is simply for the bragging rights.

Customer Review: Reports of the demise of Sony HDTV are highly exaggerated!
I've just spent an hour comparing this new, "budget"-priced Sony to a number of pricier sets which, if Amazon sales are any indicator, are currently killing Sony in sales. Not only did the Sony's picture compare favorably (to put it politely) with more expensive Samsung models, but it looked as good as its own pricier siblings in the V, W, Z, and XBR series.
You could be forgiven for assuming Sony is out of the business of making HD TVs if you looked at the 50 best-selling sets on Amazon (there's no more than 2-3 Sony's listed, with Samsung occupying approximately 40 of the spots). But such a conclusion would be highly premature and terribly mistaken. According to mid-year sales figures, Sony is still edging out Samsung in North American sales and is closing in on the Korean manufacturer in world-wide sales, with a goal of pulling ahead by 2010. In fact, the company's development of revolutionary OED (Organic Electro-Luminescence) technology is currently the talk of the industry.
Sony admittedly has been late to the market with some of its products and, moreover, has done a lousy job of making consumers aware of meaningful differences in its admittedly confusing product line (a new 40" hi-def set can be purchased in no fewer than six Sony models and at widely varying prices). It's nice to have choices, but not if the consumer can't be informed in clear, layman's terms exactly what they are. In the meantime, you can be assured of Sony value and reliability with the KDL 40S4100, currently being offered at the lowest retail price-point ever for a 40" 1080p LCD HDTV by the redoubtable media giant.

Customer Review: Not Disappointed
I wanted a 65 inch plus TV to watch football on this year. I have been researching this for about a year, and settled on the Samsung HL67A750. I have had this set for a month now and it is Awesome! Like a previous reviewer said, with a little tweaking, the picture rivals anything I have seen. I have it hooked up to a home theater, so I cannot vouch for the sound on the set itself. This ia really a great deal and I cannot recommend it enough. I am not disappointed with this purchase none in the least. If you are on the fence about buying it like I was, go for it. Amazon is the best.
I just bought a projector which doesn't have DVI input, so I bought this cable to get a digital video signal from my laptop (from DVI on laptop to HDMI on projector). I'm glad I chose this - it seems to be working well, no problems.
Customer Review: Outstanding
Great price and fast delivery. The only gripe I have is with the technology itself not the product. This was for an older Sony rear projection screen and sometimes the HDCP "handshakes" don't always coordinate well. Overall, does the job, good quality cable, please don't be fooled by Monster or anything ridiculously expensive.
