What's great about it: No one else on my block has one! LOL
What's not so great: Sooner or later someone will.
A snap to install, thats it no problems here. But make sure you research BEFORE you buy. Forget Ebay, I got sick to death about the bidding thing and honestly they are cheaper here.
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: Quick easy setup
What's not so great: nothing yet
I bought this for my Samsung LN52A650. It automatically detected my wireless network & setup was easy.
Note, the LN52A750 comes wireless, but costs $200 more than the LN52A650. Easy choice for me.
I would recommend this to a friend!

What's great about it: The idea
What's not so great: The reality
I have a Samsung LN46A650 LCD television to use with this wireless adapter. I also had problems! When I plugged it in the TV found it and asked if I wanted to connect to a network. Everything went fine until I tried to input the security key phrase for my wireless network. Big problem: there were only 6 letters available instead of the full alphabet and no way that I could find to type an underscore "_" between the words in my pass phrase. Nothing on Samsung's website addresses this problem and when I called on the phone, they put me on hold and never picked up again. I'm returning this. Future firmware updates definitely need to address these issues.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

What's great about it: Matches my TOC Samsung LCD TV.
What's not so great: Needs a firmware update to address wireless network setup issues.
I have a Samsung LN52A650 LCD television to use with this wireless adapter. When I plugged it in the TV found it and asked if I wanted to connect to a network. Everything went fine until I tried to input the pass phrase for my wireless network. Problem number one, there is no way that I could find to type spaces between the words in my pass phrase. Second problem, the field only accepts 26 characters and I use a pass phrase that is a bit longer than that for security reasons. Future firmware updates definitely need to address these issues.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
