I originally ordered the Samsung LN40B650 and was fairly certain that I had made a good choice. I don't know why but I starting second guessing my decision, which led me to review the Samsung LED LCD televisions. While the reviews were not extremely glowing, the Samsung UN40B6000 looked like it could better the picture of the CCFL LN40B650 and I canceled the order for CCFL and went with the 6000 series LED television. One of the "cons" of the edge-placed LED televisions is a noted lack of screen uniformity but that is for larger screen sizes and I thought the 40 inch screen would not be as prone to that problem.

Some thoughts and observations:

1. The clear screen is very good - I have 3 windows, and a bright ceiling light; there are no reflection problems. In some of my earlier posted Amazon photos, a window reflection was evident on the screen, but not really noticeable in real-life viewing. I found, however, if I looked for the reflection, I could see it. I reshot the photos in lower light to better illustrate the performance of the UN40b6000. The first photo shows how good the screen image is when viewed directly on; this quality remains solid to 15 - 20 degrees of center. The image does lighten but I disagree that it rapidly deteriorates to poor quality even up to a viewing angle of 45 degrees; it's still a good image.
2. Out of the box the picture is good, but after using the settings recommended by CNET, with some slight personal adjustments, the picture for many Blu Ray pictures are as good as I've seen.
3. Despite the stated mega contrast ratio of 3,000,000:1, the gamma setting needed to be adjusted to at least +2 or +3 (highest) values to keep dark scenes properly contrasted.

We bought this TV because it had the best picture, period. The rest is, as they say, gravy. That said, there's a lot of gravy.

Fantastic picture
A lot of HDMI inputs (4)
Easy to set up
Attractive and lightweight design
Cable HD looks great
There's some control of the Panasonic receiver/DVD player through the TV
Photos on USB thumb drive look gorgeous

The Ethernet connection is nice, but it should do more: I want access to my Ethernet HP Media Vault, and the Internet offering (USA Today news stories, weather, and stocks) is meager
One of the PIP options must be to the RF coaxial input

The cons are minor, especially since I wouldn't have cared or noticed if the features weren't included at all.

We just upgraded from a 10yr old huge tube tv to this. Granted that anything would be awsome in comparison, the picture is fabulous, its very light, thin, and energy efficient. It is weird not having any buttons on the tv itself, but I can kind of see why. Since it is so thin, the wire placement in the back is a bit strange, or different I should say from the monster tube tv we had. We had to get a HMDI cable to go with it to connect our DVD player, but other then that, no other item was needed. If you are going to mount it on the wall, you will need to purchase that separately. Luckily the DVD player we had was new enough to be an upconvert to Hi-def.

The picture looks like you are standing next to the film crew as they are filming the show. It's very strange. Even Kungfu Panda looked more 3 dimensional if that is possible.

I really wanted to give this a 4.5/5, but that isn't an option. I bought this TV with 3 things in mind: sports, movies, video games. The picture on this TV is absolutely incredible; it's on par with any picture on any hdtv out there. It did take a lot of adjusting to get the picture (color, contrast, dejudder, etc) to the level I wanted. I suggest using a THX certified dvd to calibrate it, for those who do not want to pay to have it calibrated. The factory settings for the TV are not good, but after tinkering with it for quite a while, I think the picture is near perfect. Unlike regular LCDs I've been accustomed to, the colors on this LED are better. Blacks are blacker, whites are whiter. Also, I'm a very big video game player, and this TV displays my 360 games (using an HDMI cable) better than any TV I've ever used. Also, there is no lag while playing, which I've noticed before on some HDTVs. Sporting events are crystal clear and crisp without appearing fake, which was a "must" for me while shopping. The clear and crisp picture isn't just for sporting events; it also looks great for all HD channels, particularly Discovery, Travel, Food Network. It makes you feel like you are there. Another thing I like about it is simply the way the TV itself looks and is designed. It's very thin and light weight, which is great. I also really like the "touch of red" design; it's just nice to look at.

With all those good things said about the TV, it is not perfect. Probably my biggest issue came up while watching my first dvd with this tv. The LED edge-lighting can cause an issue during scenes that are intended to be very dark/black. However, after some adjusting (again), I got the picture to look the way I wanted it to. (Note: this was a regular dvd played on an upscaling dvd player; NOT a blu-ray.
