I have had this televison since July 20th 2011 and it is yet to disapoint. I opted to leave 3D out due to the fact of not liking wearing glasses whilst watching television. But besides that it is a brilliant piece of kit.
It is a very easy step-by-step guide of how to install it and then manually or automatically find the channels.This specific model is compatible with the internet although the disadvantage of this is the adapter need to connect to the internet does not come with the televison itself. The high resolution image works brilliantly with my Sky+HD box and the HdMi cable was easy to attach and set up.
A disadvantage of the televison is that the LED does wear out if the same channel is viewed regulary. This I read in the instruction manual and actually was quite surprising. Although this little irregularity it is still a very good tv which I would ask anyone to invest in if they want a good quality television. The stand that comes with it is a reasonable size and hold the televison without a shake or any movement if the televison is knocked.
This televison is a brilliant buy and if you read this and are tempted to buy it I urge you, hope this helped on a you making a choice for a television and please comment so I know what to improve on.
Just want to say that this is a great TV.
The LED backlit technology seems to make the picture much clearer and sharp compared to other LCD TV's I have seen. The screen is really thin, it was surprising how thin it was.
It is easy to use and easy to setup, we had no problems during the installation, it worked almost straight out of the box.
It is an expensive TV, and worth the money in my opinion. TV technology moves on quickly and it is hard to make the decision to buy because you are never sure that something isn't going to come out to better it. This seems like a TV that will last and not go out of date quickly, so it is bound to be worth the investment.
I am not one to go for the cheapest product when it comes to TV's, I like to buy quality which lasts. I also really like the design of Samsung TV's and might have a bias towards them, but they do offer quality I feel some other manufacturers don't.
I definitely would recommend.
A top tv. It may cost more than some tvs but it is worth it. Firstly, whether it is switched on or off, it is good to look at. It is sleek, stylish and ultra thin. I prefer LCDs to plasma for several reasons. First off all the screens are brighter. They also weigh less and are usually thinner. Finally, they use less power and can save you around twenty pounds a year in electricity to run. This Samsung has great picture quality, and if you are looking to move from a standard tv to an HD ready one, you will certainly be able to tell the difference - the quality is amazing. It has 1080p, which means full HD. Also, unlike some cheaper LCDs the picture won't jump as it has a 100Hz processor. This means that it shows more frames per seconds than some TVs and so fast movement will still seem smooth. You will have to pay for Bluray player and something like freesat HD to get the most out of it however. Also, as it is so thin, there is less space for quality speakers and so the sound quality suffers, but it is worth the sacrifice overall.
After seeing this display you'll never buy the cheapest option again! This really sets the standard for LCD picture quality. The picture is the most lifelike that I've seen, and knocks the socks off CRT displays. The main reasons for this are the super high contrast and 100hz image interpolation, which eliminates motion blur entirely. I've taken a look at the Sony efforts at this, but even thier 200hz system isn't as successful in fooling the eye.
This set is made to be connected to a home theatre system, so budget for a decent set of 5.1 speakers with optical input. Samsung produce a good system, but check out the Logitech Z series it you want something more cost-effective.
The built-in media player is impressive, playing videos at 1080p without any trouble. File support is good, but there's no DTS so you have to encode in Dolby 5.1.
The thin case means you'll want to mount this on a wall for safety reasons at least.
We saw this TV in a shop and were so impressed by the picture quality and how slim it was. When we needed to replace our TV it was our first choice, and we splashed out on the 46" version. It arrived in a huge box which left us wondering what we had done, but once set up it does not overpower the room at all, which I think is in main due to how slim it is. I am not a techie person, but the clarity of the picture is amazing, and it was incredibly easy to set up. I saw other reviewers saying the sound quality wasn't great, but it is fine, and the only 'problem' is that when you watch a dvd you have to turn the volume up more than for normal tv. In short, a great, easy to use tv, looks good and does the job! There are lots of additional features and there are internet options which I haven't tried yet. There is a USB socket which you can connect digital media and your photos to. Highly recommend this tv.
