Summary: Everything that I'd hoped for in this television but with one surprise. Any (or so it seems) attempt to access an app or media needs to logon to Samsung. Why does the manufacturer want to know I am streaming a film from my laptop to my television if I try to do so solely using Samsung applications?
Summary: Unlike another reviewer, I literally plugged in the internet connection and it was ready to go! Fortunately, I knew that some of the video on demand services were not available as yet. Still, it would've been nice to have 4oD etc. rather than just iPlayer. I have to say the Smart TV functions are still very clunky, although much better than the LG counterpart. Picture quality is amazingly sharp, especially when viewing HD channels.
Summary: The picture quality is excellent, especially the HD channels, although even with my poor antenna and signal, the SD channels look very good also. The sound is OK, but with such a thin TV it's nigh on impossible to get a quality sound. One of the main reasons I bought this TV is for the net connectivity it offers, as I have a home NAS and wanted to stream video from it to the TV.
Summary: I bought this telly last year partly because it claimed to receive Freeview HD. I don't subscribe to cable or satellite, so this seemed an economical way of getting high definition. I waited patiently till 21st March when my local transmitter started HD transmissions, and am bitterly disappointed. All HD channels are frequently interrupted by a brief blank screen when it goes black momentarily. This is sufficiently irritating to make these channels unwatchable.
Summary: i took the plunge and bought the tv becuase of the price and features.picture qaulity is really good,its only let down as it says in reviews by the backlight bleeding into picture in dark scenes,turning down the backlight doesnt do anything much to get rid of this but if you turn it doen to level 3 or 4 the picture for me is too dim.i like bright pictures with good contrasts.freeview hd built in is really good,overall a great value for money tv especially in the...
Excerpt: This is anabsolutely beautiful set, super thin, very good looking design. A cracking picture quality both on HD and SD channels. Suprisingly good sound quality given that a lot of people seem to complain about the sound on LCD TV's. The Electronic manual on the TV is great and means you'll never be lost for instructions, it'll even take you right to the options you're viewing although it does suffer from a bit of lost-in-translation.
Excerpt: "...noticing the quality of the Samsung models as to be above others such as the Sony which were often higher priced. Great value for money! The sound is decent to but doesn't quite match up to the sound which we get on the Panasonic downstairs, probably because this has larger speakers but after being put through a surround system package I already had I can't complain about that! (not that it was bad enough to complain just not quiteeeee as good ...
Pros: Great picture, Great features, Easy to use, Very modern and attractive . HD ready .
Summary: A very good TV, is what most people say it is, very sharp, I found the internet side of it a bit iffy, it does operate but for some reason it takes a while to get the network side of it going, I'm not sure if it's my setup or that the software from Samsung is the problem, however I haven't had it long so in a while I may find it settles itself down or indeed I operate it more efficiently.
Summary: I purchased this television primarily to watch HD content, on blu-ray and the Freeview HD channels. I was initially impressed with the quality of the television in this role however I was very disappointed to find that there was a problem when watching the BBC's flagship high-def channel, BBC HD. Every so often the picture would momentarily flash a completely black, blank screen at you, annoying to the point where you would have to change the channel.
Summary: Over the last 40 years we have always bought Sony or Panasonic TVs as they seemed to have the superior specification and seemed to be sharper and brighter than most other makes. Of course most sets were bought in the good old CRT trinitron etc days. Having read reviews on the merits of LCD, LED and plasma sets we decided to give a Samsung LED Freeview HD set a trial.
