I want to first talk about the technical faults I've been having, if your buying the TV for peripherals such as a PC or games console, it's GREAT. but for digital TV, not really.
First off all the digital TV menu is very straight forward, but has been a problem child from day one. The first fault I noticed was when flicking through the radio stations from 700 upwards. The screen froze and then seconds later gave me a recurring list of the same channels on every page until I turned the TV off and then on again. This still happens today, several months after my purchase. The second fault is the signal problems. It can receive digital channels, and in the quality section, it tells me they are at 80-100% but comes up on screen as "no signal" for some channels. This was recently solved but now happens intermittently.
So with the negatives out f the way, here are some positives. The sound for a start is fantastic, not too bass filled but also not too light - so watching X factor means you get the singer and music at the same volume not one drowning out the other. The the remote control is much easier than a Sony one, and allows you to control the DVD player too, but also eats up AAA batteries. I change mine every couple months.
The picture is fantastic in HD and SD with very vibrant colours, for instance, I was watching a programme which was showing a carbon fibre bicycle and each square in the carbon fibre was clearly visible, and the small particles of black within each white square were clearly visible, and very sharp. I have also customised the sharpness and brightness to my own personal settings, something which is very handy in a darkened room.
Overall, it's ok. Just ok. It works as a TV for the kids Xbox 360 and other HDMI peripherals but as a TV for viewing free view digital, it's not really suited given the number of things that can wrong very quickly with this. Other than digital TV it's quite good value.
I bought this TV from Currys 18 months ago and am so far very happy with it.
It has a 37 inch screen with small logo on the bottom. The on/off, volume contrast buttons etc are on the side making the look of the TV very sleek and appealing. The black shiny frame complements the TV and makes it look more expensive.
You can either use the stand that this TV comes with or buy a standard wall bracket to attach it to the wall. I have mine on the wall and a cheap standard wall bracket from B&M was all it took. Simple and straight forward, took no longer than 15 mins.
I paid £480 for this TV 18 months ago, when LCD TVs were slightly more expensive and this model had just come out. Currys had an online offer on which game £50 off any TV over £500 plus free delivery. This at the time was a great offer, however, you could probably get this TV (or the newer version of it) a lot cheaper now. I would always advise to shop around though online and off.
The sound quality of this TV is excellent and as with all Samsung TVs the picture is amazing. I currently have the Sky+ box and DVD player connected to it and each device is simple to switch to. If there was something I would change it would be putting in a built in DVD player although I know this would make it a little bulkier.
Overall I am really pleased with my purchase of this TV and cannot give it any less than 5 stars. No problems what so ever, would highly recommend.
