Just bought this to upgrade an old school tv in a spare bedroom. No doubt had to go with Samsung as I have experienced superior quality with this brand. Picture and sound always meet expectations! I think I am going to have more regular guests now that I have this tv for them! This model in particular worked out great as the vibrant colors and edge lit display make for an excellent viewing experience in a brighter room. Do note that there is a bit of experimenting to do with the picture adjustments to make it perfect, but all tv's will require that. Also limited ports on the back may prompt you to get an expansion kit. All in all though another excellent product from Samsung!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
