I finally made my venture into the world of high definition television. I am very happy I finally made this move, it has completely enhanced my TV viewing experience. This is my first high def TV purchase and although I don't regret my purchase too much, I do wish I would have done a bit more research before finally making my decision.

This TV gives a beautiful picture and more inputs then you'll ever need (including HDMI, of coarse, and also USB, which is cool). The television is quite attractive and very slim when compared to other DLP televisions. The TV is very quiet, I can't hear the color wheel or anything else at all. I noticed in other reviews that people talk about straight lines bowing, luckily I don't have this problem.

Like I said, the picture is beautiful... and I mean BEAUTIFUL! My parents have a plasma TV and this DLP is leagues above it as far as picture quality is concerned. This isn't an entirely fair comparison because my parents bought a "budget" 42 inch plasma, which is now over a year old. Higher end plasmas and LCDs look a bit better then this Samsung - but you pay for that. With a budget around $2000.00 I wanted the best bang for the buck I could find and I ended up choosing this TV because of it's size and it's picture quality (especially for this size).

There is a catch to this TV though. You are buying the standard lamp and color wheel DLP if you choose this one. This will bite your wallet in the future because about every 1000-3000 hours you will need to replace the lamp. This wouldn't be so bad if the replacement lamps weren't so expensive ($200-$400). I have heard some owners getting up to 16,000 hours with their bulbs, but that's extremeley rare, typically you're looking at less then 5000 hours.

We spent about 3 months researching and looking at TVs that were at least 58", 1080p, and that had bright clear image quality and wide viewing angles. None of the LED TVs came close to meeting the size requirement so we nixed them. All the DLP and LED DLP rear projection TVs seemed very dim and could not be viewed at wide angles (although their prices were right). The ony plasma that was 1080P and at least 58" was way too expensive, although it did have awesome picture quality.

We were about to give up and wait for the price of the plasma TVs to drop, when we stumbled across the Sony XBR2. This was the only rear projection set we could find that had an image that came close to plasma quality. The only negatives was that it had a lot of extra features that drove up the price (like PIP) that we did not care about and took up a huge amount of space (24" deep and 71" wide). Since we really liked this TV, we overlooked the negatives and bought it.

While it did look big in the store, once it was delivered to our living room, it became a gargantuan dinosaur. It dwarfed our living room and we ended up visiting 5 furniture stores trying to find a stand that was big enough. To make a long story short, the size and weight of this beast was too much and we decided to return it and wait for the plasma prices to drop.

While we made the trip back to the store, we stumbled across the Samsung HL-T6176S (which had just been released that very day).

After performing a lot of research (CNET, Sound and Vision, Home Theater Magazine, etc) on manufacturers and the various DLP TVs as well as talking with many friends and colleagues about their DLP experiences, I decided this model was the best. The colors are excellent and true to life. There is no rainbow effect as in older models (probably due to the faster spinning color wheel). There is now loud fan noise. All pluses.

However, this TV is really cheap in it's construction. It's so flimsy that if you slightly push on a corner of the TV, the entire picture moves. Out of the box, my TV's picture bowed on both sides (kind of like a smile). And the overall image tilted down the right. This is really noticeable when watching letterbox movies as the black bar at the top was thicker on the right side as opposed to the left. And when watching HD channels like ESPN or HD News, the programs tickers or scores on the top of the screen tilted down the right. This bowing and tilt in the screen is really noticable and takes away from the superb picture quality.

Owning the TV for less than a month, I called Samsung who sent out their local tech. He confirmed everything above and said that there's not too much he can do. He explained that since Samsung has gone to an all plastic case for the TV, its flimsyness causes these issues. He also said that the Slim design means they have repositioned the inside mirror to the top of the TV which also contributes the bowed effect on each side of the screen. They are going to replace my screen but he doubts it will do much good. I would strongly advise not getting these Samsung new Slim DLP models until they resolve this issue.

UPDATE: 12/20/07 -- Since my first write up, I have just received my 3rd TV from Samsung.
