Correct me if I am wrong, I was doing some research on this TV:

- No SMART Features
- Only 2 HDMI
- No 3D
- Edge-lit LED

I guess it is better than the Insignia 55" 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV $599 - $50 in terms of the picture....Right? Is it $310.99 better?

For 899, you can get the 55" ES6003 on boxing day at FS. It's not a smart tv either, but it is twice as slim and has a swivel stand (all other specs the same).

It depends on whether you want to deal with the boxing day crowd or go with Costco which I assume has better warranty.

I would go with a brand other than Samsung if you want smart tv, I have one and never use the feature. Biggest gripes are its difficult to navigate videos stored on nas and doesn't play most formats. And you have to use the all-share hdmi port to send sound from the tv to the av receiver which is a problem because this automatically switches the receiver input to that port so you have to pass the cable box signal through the TV which down-converts dolby digital audio signals before sending it on to the receiver. I suppose you could always just use the TV speakers when using the smart tv feature though.

these are entry level TVs... and i mean entry level... if you know anything about TVs or if you are into home theatres, even as a beginner, you wouldn't want this TV. it's lacking a lot of the integration features you would want or need when using it as your main TV completely hooked up with home theatre sound system, etc. while it will work, it is very cumbersome and if you have older folks in your family or if you're picky, it will drive you nuts that it takes a number of buttons to get the video/audio to output the way it should, or that it would cost you $150+ for a harmony remote.

this is a good TV for the kitchen/bedroom or restaurant or wherever it's just a noise box and not a real TV/movie experience appliance.

P.S. - I love Samsung, but I don't love their entry level products. too primitive.

Was considering getting this for the folks' bedroom. Could you expand on this? Do you mean it doesn't support HDMI-CEC? Will my mum have trouble playing a DVD or using a Google TV with this particular TV?

it definitely doesn't support HDMI-CEC
the controls are also laggy... like running Windows XP on Celeron 600 with Office background agent and antivirus running type of laggy...
if it's in the bedroom and only hooked up to a DVD player, you will probably be fine...

the most challenging thing is trying to get the audio to come out of a home theatre set. for me it's not challenging, just frustrating since you have to:
- turn on TV (mute tv speakers once)
- change input to HDMI (DVD/cable box)
- turn on home theatre
- change input on home theatre to digital in

that's four buttons to press when it could be one button with hdmi...

tell that to a 60 year old and they're like WTF, why can't i just use the tv speakers?? lol

What your describing has little to do with Picture Quality, if you just want to watch some TV than these and the BB 55” 1080p/120hz LED at $599.00 are good Quality Screens and if that is what you can afford or all you want to spend than these screens are great choices.

If you’re looking at spending thousands than this thread is not for you.

I think he has a point in terms of integration! With only 2 HDMI IN and 1 each of Composite and Component ports, it's really on the low end of the port count. One ATV and One Cable Box and you're done! You have to constantly unplug/replug if you want to add anything else like a Camcorder or an Xbox etc. Even my super cheap 37" LG made Insignia has 3 HDMI ports.

I think so long as you have a very basic TV set up, you will be happy with this TV. 55" for ~$850 topped with Costco's 90 days return policy and 2 years warranty is a very good deal for a series 6 Samsung.
