    I'm currently using this Samsung TV.

    It's not the size you're looking for but if you're looking for information on Samsung LED TV's I can say that I am more than happy with it and for the same amount of money I wouldn't purchase any thing else. I started using Samsung monitors for my gaming rig that takes 3 monitors. Before my house was broken in to I had 3 Samsung monitors connected to my gaming rig and a Vizio 42" LCD 1080p for all TV viewing. After the robbery I temporally hooked up some LG's to my computer since the Samsung monitors I wanted were out of stock at the time and I realized that the Samsung monitors I had previously looked way better than the LG's that had the same specs as the Samsungs. I ended up replacing my Vizio LCD TV with the Samsung LED TV and it looks way better.

    PROS: Awesome picture, colors blend nicely and the foreground blends well with the background. Some TV's have a super clear picture but make every thing look like a poorly shot B-rate day time soap opera even when calibrated correctly. I'm not sure what causes this, but I have never had this issue with my Samsung.

    The thin size of this TV makes it really nice for wall mounting or setting on a TV cart / entertainment center.

    CONS: The factory speakers are not very good but if you're using your own speakers it's a non issue.
    You need an adapter for RCA connections(This comes with the TV). Nothing I use requires RCA connections but keep that in mind. I find adapters for video connections extremely annoying and unreliable.
    This has an Ethernet connection but if you want to connect to your wifi network you will need to purchase an adapter.

    I used to really like Samsung TVs, but four years ago, I bought both of my daughters family's 42" Samsung LCDs. One of them had to have the main board replaced and the other had to completely replace the unit. This doesn't say much for reliability.

    No LED/LCD unless you go for the Sharp Elite. Panasonic or Samsung plasma are the only serious contenders.

    Fwiw. I just got a 50" 1080p LG plasma (no 3d no smart features) from bj's for $599. Taking my receipt back on Black Friday for the sale price of 499.

    Perfect for me due to just a sports watcher.
