This Samsung LED TV has an excellent HD picture and is an incredibly stylish piece of kit which draws attention in a room without being overbearing. I've used this with HD TV and a PS3 and on both it delivers a crystal clear image with excellent colour levels. There have been issues on some sets with clouding, I only noticed this on my set when a very dark image is on the screen and only when I was actively looking for it.
The extremely thin bezel on this model makes the set a touch smaller than most 40" LCD TVs and for those with space limitations it is something to consider, it also gives this model a stylish look. The remote is easy to use and has all the functions you could require. The sound (as is the norm for LCD TVs) is far from perfect but there are a few different settings that help improve the bass which is so often lacking in such thin televisions. Although for audiophiles it may be worth investing in a standalone speaker system.
As this is a 3D TV I'll have to mention the quality of the 3D this set is capable of. Like all 3D TVs it depends on the quality of the source material but I have found that even on the highest quality there is at least a small amount of crosstalk which is dissapointing. The set uses active 3D technology which can cause eye strain when using the battery operated active 3D glasses supplie. I've found that using the 3D has given me the odd headache which is something you wouldn't expect with a passive 3D set.
Honestly the HD picture is so strong on this set that I tend not to bother with 3D and don't feel that I'm missing out on anything at all. The blacks are deep, the colours rich and motion good (although watching sports does result in some tearing of the image, usually only a problem on standard definition channels).
There are four HDMI slots on the back, three USB slots, component, PC, AV, SCART, LAN scoket and a headphone socket which is more than ample. One of the USB slots is compatible with an external hard drive, I've used this extensively and can say that it is one of my favourite features on this TV. The set is capable of playing virtually any video format thrown at it, including the popular high def format MKV, which the XBox360 and PS3 are unable to deal with.
As with most modern LCD/LED TVs in the mid budget range, this TV comes with internet connectivity and Smart TV functionality. I haven't spent a huge amount of time exploring this but what I have seems very well laid out, the free 3D programmes/films available are a nice touch and a good way to show of the 3D capabilities of the TV.
Overall this is a very impressive television and I would highly recommend the purchase, you may get more use out of the 3D than I have as I'm not the most avid fan of active 3D technology.
