I love mine (although I knew I would after having installed giant Samsung DLP HDTV's in other residences), especially for the $749.99 I got it for, 2 weeks ago at Costco along with the double warranty. I ordered a heavy-duty, double-armed iron full-motion wall mount that extends a full 2 feet from the wall and of course swivels in many ways and tilts dramatically http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CKL9U2/ref=cm_cr_thx_view"]http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CKL9U2/ref=cm_cr_thx_view
. When it comes to HDTV's, to get the full immersive effect your TV should be no further away than triple the screen size.
Installing the 30-lb. mount by myself with one hand while the other affixed the screws was no easy task, as was mounting the 40-lb. TV itself. I needed extra long cables running to and from my stereo system, 2 DVD recorders (w/burners + hard drives), my previous DVR, and the new HD DVR from my cable company, each with 500GB and 1TB DVR expanders respectively for a total of 2 TB recording space. I still have my Sony Trinitron CRT while it lasts and have it hooked up so that any of the aforementioned components can be displayed on either TV, with dual-hookups on each. The wide wall channel cover I bought from Home Depot hides all these nicely, and this Samsung has a fastener so all cables meet at the bottom center in the rear of the TV (I also made sure that not only were they all "out of sight" but that they wouldn't be in the way of the mount when the TV is extended far from or flat against the wall, or turned in any direction). My new MacBook Pro attaches nicely in a variety of ways, via either VGA or mini-display to HDMI (for video), and either stereo 1/8" to RCA L+R or digital optical (for audio).
I have always been sold on Samsung when it comes to HDTV (the only manufacturer of all 4 types of HDTV technology) but now I am happier I was able to get the perfect size in a Samsung without spending much more than the lesser brand names!
