Summary: I'll keep this a short review. More like advice really. I've had this t.v for 8 months now. After months of researching i decided to stay away from the Samsung ES series. It's an amazing t.v but please read forums as i've read loads from people who have had problems with the Samsung's bleeeding & clouding and then having difficulty from samsung in getting repairs/replacements. I decided it was down to the Panasonic 55VT50 or the Sony 55HX853.
Summary: The TV itself is great especially at the price. The angle at which the TV leans back on it's stand seems more noticeable in real life than the pictures would lead you to believe but is not a major problem. The big problem that I had with the TV was the fact that it 4 or 5 attempts to get it delivered. The courier regularly delivered boxes that were damaged and had actual punctures right through the packaging.
Summary: This is a fantastic tv, offering good value for money. For an edge lit led it is about as good as you will find for the price. The default settings need some tuning, but im very happy with the image quality. There is only minimal clouding and black definition is very good. Clear and clear plus are excellent for sports as they negate almost all of the nasty processing effects.
