yea it has them, atm I have a 6 1/2 computer sub on it also in the setup you can change them to either run at a continuous set level or go up/down with the volume it has the optical out as well, not bad for the money look into them.

I wonder if it is because his is older or something, I hooked his surround sound up and we couldn't find any.
What model and size is yours? I'm looking at 55'' ones right now.

40 something inches and it's got a few years on it(I think 3yrs) I would have to ask my wife the model as she is the only reason I bought it "I had a oldschool tv" but she wanted a clearer screen for gaming, but yea the output is in the back panels bottom right corner with the digital and two l/r outputs and then a few hdmi's and audio rca's on the left bottom but there inputs I believe.

Samsung is the best hands down. I have 3 of their LED's and had a few of their regular LCD's

I like my moms samsung but I don't think it would be worth the extra just for my bedroom. If it was the main TV I'd spend the extra.

True.. but now that I think about it 55 is ******* huge for a bedroom, I have a 40 led in mine and its too big but then again its the monitor for my PC too :)

LG is nice also, sharp is also good

If i were gonna go the cheap route I would probably get insignia or one of those bestbuy ones. Cheapest I think I would go tho would be a Sharp LCD

For the distance my bed is away from the wall 55'' should be about perfect. I'm also going to build some full range horns for in there to :)

May I recommend this?

The nice thing about these new samsungs is bam plug in a $20 wireless dongle and you get wifi you can stream netflix or anything from your computer wirelessly to your TV.. its awesome I do that all the time

No kidding...No picture quality with a plasma,unless you plan on keeping the Blinds closed,and dark all the time,as well as projection..i think my PIP RCA Tube would be better Picture wise.Led will be just fine@240hz,and 1080p,..You might be able to also find a 52inch.Standing back,its not much different than a 55,and the pricing may be beneficial?:)
