I have four HDTV's already from Sony, Samsung, Sharp and Vizio. The Vizio is the worst out of the four but it was also half the price. Their new line looks real nice and has some specs and options that are comparable to sets that cost over $1000 more from the three S's.
Following up with bwoody's comment... wasn't Samsung a budget brand not too many years ago? They have to start somewhere. You can't deny the momentum and market that they have built for themselves the last couple of years.
