5.0 out of 5 stars Best TV for the price!, March 26, 2012
This review is from: Samsung UN46ES6100 46-Inch 1080p 120Hz Slim LED HDTV (Black) (2012 Model) (Electronics)
What else can I tell you that you aren't already thinking?

You're here, reading the reviews because you want to buy a television, or are at least thinking about it. Here's some food for thought.

I had my mind set on buying another Samsung model before I purchased this one, because out of all the manufacturers out there, Samsung does it right. And that's not some clever sell tactic - that's the truth. Go to any store, like Best Buy, and see for yourself. I did, and was quite impressed with how well they outpreformed vs. LG's and other brand names.

In doing this, I did all the research, just like you; refresh rate, LED vs. LCD vs. Plasma (and all the pros and cons that follow that argument), 3D or not 3d, SMART TV or not, etc. The bottom line is, you already know what the specs are. What you really want to know is how it will perform when you get it home.

First of all, don't believe the naysayers who tell you that the sound on flat-panel TV's is substandard. My living room is larger than average, and I have never turned the volume up to hear voices or have had difficulty hearing anything for that matter on this TV. But even if you don't think the sound is up to par (work with me, here), you will be impressed with the picture quality. When this TV is being used to it's maximum potential, there are rich, dark blacks, deep and acurate bright colors, crystal picture clarity and fluid motion, even in the fastest of action scenes Even the most jaded of TV watchers (like my friend, who came over to help me out around the house yesterday) was impressed with it. And he does not impress easily. Even standard TV looks pretty good, although comparably speaking, why would you want to watch it when HD is so cool? But I digress...

The most impressive thing about this TV? The price. When I compare the price of this TV to others that boast the same features that cost more and offer less quality, it becomes clear why I think so much of this product. If you want a great TV, but don't care about 3D, this is the set for you! You'll be impressed, I promise!

Actually, comparing TV picture quality in a large darkened department store (like best buy) is the worst idea. Half of the manufacturers ship their TVs to the stores with instructions for activating "store display" mode, which jacks up the contrast and saturation to give the appearance of the evenly-tuned television sitting right next to it made by someone else.

Using these settings, it's not hard for customers to come away with the impression that inferior sets were outperforming those with more accurate color reproduction and better real-world contrast. In fact, those settings would look weird and funny if you took them home, but are basically designed to look better BY CONTRAST with other non-juiced TVs sitting next to them.

(try turning up your contrast, brightness, and saturation/color settings all the way max at home and see how you like the picture)

That said, it does perform solidly right in there with the competition and the price is right.

That was a pretty great review. I bought the same samsung tv to replace my previous 10-year old junk but I couldn't stand the cables just hanging around behind the TV. Just not used to them, I guess. I saw this brand called FlexiMounts and they had a ""cable management mount"" for a pretty reasonable price that worked perfectly. It's a must buy if you're as OCD as I am. Hope this helps!

Great SPAM here by user "Chen Xulian" (also zichen and d067kv0o9) who is posting this same line over and over again to various TV reviews and also uses another name to do it.
