Summary: This is more for the 40" version of the TV, which is the one I have. It has been about 5 weeks since I purchased my Samsung R71 and it has been at home for less than 1 week. Reason being, the 1st unit, there was a hum coming from the unit. Its a noise you'd hear from the power unit. So I had the unit changed... with difficulty, so that's a minus point for Samsung's customer warranty claim procedure.
Pros: Cosmetical looks good, impressive specs....see what I don't like
Cons: Glossy body makes dust look prominent, only 1 HDMI input
Easy on the wallet, and even easier on the Eyes...

Excerpt: I have had this TV for about 4 years, and it has not failed me once. The colour is excellent and has ports for HDMI and USB, and comes inbuilt with Free-view which is always useful for someone who doesn't have a cable sky or BT subscription. You turn it on, add an Ariel and you have over 50 channels. My TV was 32" and was just the right size. The set comes with a remote, which is where I had problems, because the remote would be unresponsive for no reason.
Pros: "Lasts for a long time", "Good quality screen"
Excerpt: This TV came with the flat I have been renting for the past two years. It is wall mounted on a strong bracket but it is suitable to stand on a table with an attachment. The TV is HD ready, although I do not have sky or anything that runs through HD so its of no use to me. I use the TV mainly to watch things on my laptop, so I connect a VGA cable to the back of the TV (really tricky to do as the tv is against the wall and you have to reach your hand behind) and you can...
Excerpt: I bought this T.V. over a year ago now to replace one of the old, heavy sets as my new T.V. unit could no longer support the weight of it. After looking around for a while, I chose this one based mainly on the quality you know you're going to get from Samsung and that it was a reasonable price. Although I don't quite understand the different specifications, my partner assured me that it was high quality, and from an everyday perspective, I have to say I agree.
Excerpt: I brought this television around 4 years ago now when they very first come out, as I thought I should probably upgrade from the very chunky older televisions. I had looked around for a long time and compared different picture quality's in shops and decided this was the one for me! The general look of the tv is very sleek and modern and looks excellent in any surrounding.
Excerpt: Iv put up with my basic picture none HD Television from asda for years now as I only watch dvd's now and again on it and play my xbox 360 so didn't feel that hundreds of pound investment was not necessary and also naively believed HD was not much of an improvement anyway because my picture was already decent.
Excerpt: We baught this TV a couple of years ago for our bedroom and was delighted with it. It looks sleek and ultra modern and the functions on it are fantastic. It has many features, such as HD ready (we use it with a HD sky box), you can plug a HDMI cable into it which can be plugged into a laptop and you can view films, family videos, you tube or even just surf the web and use the TV as a monitor.
Excerpt: I absolutely love the samsung TV range and personally think that they are they best flat screen telly's on the market at the moment. A brand new range has also just been launched that has kept the high standards of this great brand. The look is simply beautiful, they are so slick and smooth which just adds to the great picture quality that you get.
Excellent TV, but need separate sound system if you buy this TV.

Excerpt: The classic piano black look is enough to tempt you to buy this beautiful piece of art. I was more inclined to buy Toshiba Regza, but had to bow down against my wife's wishes and ended up with this LCD TV. The picture quality was amazing, but sound quality was real down side. I can compare the sound quality with my mobile speakers. So, I ended up plugging-in my desktop PC's speaker to the LCD, thinking that I will buy good home cinema system some day.
Excerpt: I bought this tv a week ago from dixons.co.uk for £419.00 which i thought was a good price. The main reason i chose this TV is because it looks very stylish and the picture quality is fantastic! Also the price was fantastic! It has built in freeview and is HD ready. It was easy to assemble too. The only downside to this tv is that the remote is quite big but its not a massive problem. Any other downsides would be me nit picking to find something wrong with.
