This is an excellent smart tv with a lot of features you should definitely consider if you are upgrading.
Design: This is a 51 inch plasma smart tv with 3d playback. It looks absolutely amazing and will complement any room you put it in brilliantly. The display looks great, since there are practically no borders whatsoever. I do have a bit of a grip with the width of the tv though, since is a big departure from a lot of current ultra thin samsung models. In fact, it is really quite thick, and will most likely stop you from hanging it from a wall. It also has plenty of ports and connections so you shouldn't run out.
Smart TV features: This is by far the most advanced smart TV system that is currently on the market. There is just no comparison with other brands. It carries all of the catch up services that you might use (BBC iPlayer, ITV player, 4OD and Demand 5). I do find that some parts of the interface run quite slowly though, with longer loading times than one would expect for a TV set of this price. It is especially apparent when using the voice recognition feature. It is a fairly small grievance however.
Picture quality: This is definitely some of the best picture quality you will find in a TV set of this price. The highlight of the screen is the level of black it can reach. You won't find another set (at least in this price range) with this kind of display.
If you are upgrading from a non smart TV this is definitely the way to make the step to the next generation
