When it came time to part with our three year-old Toshiba 42" LCD due to excessive accumulation of burn-in zones, the choice of a replacement caused many hours of auditions in the stores. I kept coming back to the Samsung 46C6300 LED LCD because of its amazing picture and, due of our intent to wall-mount, the great accommodations for compact cable management. In a way, it was a shame that we abandoned using the supplied stand since cables are nicely handled and essentially invisible.

A note here about cables and this machine: forget using the really big Monster and AR HDMI cables. They simply can't be made to fit the routing detents on the back of the TV. I used CablesToGo HDMI's which are much cheaper, more flexible and totally adequate.

For wall mounting, we used a SolidMounts UT-600 (which provides 15 degrees of tilt we didn't require) and the resulting assembly is only about 3 inches screen-to-wall. This mount will hold 175 lb. of weight which is very adequate for the 35 lb. Samsung.

The TV has a great range of settings for tweaking picture characteristics but, so far, the factory settings are adequate for us. The fact that the screen is glass and our Toshiba was a non-glare material caused some worry about reflections of room lights but Samsung has worked some kind of magic with their glass which seems to eat reflections.

All in all, I'm very pleased with the TV, and the price and shipping from Amazon were outstanding.

Anti-reflection technology has been around a long time. It's been used on glass camera lenses, giving them the appearance of a blue tint. The plastic lenses on my glasses have an anti-reflection coating which acts, like you say, like magic!

I'll check this out on the TV's the next time I'm in a big-box store.
