Great Picture with some good features but lacking with in the sound department

Advantages: Good vivid picture quality
Disadvantages: sound is tinny
I'm a TV installer and I have set-up many of these TV's. The picture quality on the TV's are very good due to the kind of back lighting it uses. It uses LED's which allows a high contrast ratio (don't take to much notice of the contrast ratio number when comparing between brands, cause they all measure it differently) the TV set gives true blacks and also it gives a a nice vivid picture.
The sound on samsungs are generally tinny. This is because it has down firing speakers, so the sound is bouncing off the ground. This is easily fixed with a surround sound speakers which will sound much better. If you don't want speakers sat around the room or simply don't have the space, Q Acoustics make 2.1 speaker system which is slim and fixes to the back of the set. It's called QTV2.
When cleaning the screen be sure to get proper LCD cleaning solutions and an e-cloth. Cleaning with water and a duster will just leave the screen streaky. When cleaning the frame don't use any sort of solutions as it's been reported it will leave cracks in the frame after a period.
It has Internet capability but require a wireless dongle which plugs in the back, they usually cost round about £60 - £70. Once your set-up you can stream videos directly form the Internet, from site's such as youtube. You can also get weather reports or stocks.
All in all this is a good set and would look good in anyone's home.
Summary: good picture, good features but poor sound
