Samsung UN46D6400

Don’t be fooled by the styling from the Amazon pictures, take a look at for real images:

Samsung UN46D6400 46-Inch 1080p 120Hz 3D LED HDTV (Black)
Price $1,259.00

The UN46D6400 supports 3d.

I would recommend purchasing the UN46D6400 or the UN46D6300. Both are super slim at 1.2″ and both have the thin .5″ perimeter. The only difference is the UN46D6300 does not support 3D, but has a builtin web browser.
