    Your review here was a huge factor in my choice of this Samsung as my next TV, so I wanted to swing back by and thank you. I’ve never been seen such a perfect TV! The colors are crystal clear and life-like; it’s more like looking out a window than staring at a screen. I already had three HD TVs, but I just got the Hopper through my job at DISH, and it gives me full HD and DVR in four separate rooms, so I decided to get a fourth set and really take advantage of it. The best part is now that we have four TVs with HD and DVR, no one in the house will have to miss a show due to a timer conflict or have to watch their favorite team play in standard def. Thanks again!
