  • 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?
  • Pros: Quality picture and plenty of connections.
  • Cons: SmartHub

  • 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.
  • Pros: Sharp Picture, top EPG
  • Cons: Slight Ghosting

Quality HDTV at a very good price

  • 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.

Fine unless you want Freeview HD

  • 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.

Great Product

  • Summary: Got the 32" version of this TV to replace a 26" Sony SD model (still in good working order but appearing to be a very small screen compared to that of our friends and relations!) and I am very pleased I did.

Good quality, reasonable price

A. Barrett, Amazon

  • Summary: My only very slight disappointment with this television is how quickly the colour washes out of the pictures when you move from watching it dead on. Not a major issue and something I think most LCD TVs are guilty of.

Great Picture Quality, Check your local area for Freeview HD Availability

Geordie Paul, Amazon
11 February 2012
  • Summary: The main reason for buying this model was the Picture quality, the Freeview HD tuner and the ability to get on demand TV. I was a little dissappointed when I realised that the HD channels wouldn't be available until September in my area but that's my fault for not researching it properly.

Forget the TV's sound, get PC Speakers!

  • Summary: An excellent television in all respects, bar one. The sound is inclined to grate with certain people's voices, and the bass is inadequate. I tried all the different settings but none were satisfactory. Here's a brilliant solution. I purchased a set of Logitech OEM S220 2.1 speakers.

Lacks RCA audio output

Dicko, Amazon
27 January 2012
  • Summary: I love everything about this TV except the fact that it lacks RCA audio outputs to connect it to an external amp and speakers. Whilst it is possible to use the 3.5mm headphone socket with the right lead, this cuts the TV speakers until the plug is then pulled out again. Not really satisfactory.
