Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Good design style product, but all other features what you would expect from any TV.
Bad points:
Sound quality not brilliant, glossy finish high maintenance. The worst feature of all and would make me not buy this product again is the very complicated remote control, it is not at all logical, I've always had Sony products and now I understand you get what you pay for. If you don't mind complex remote options i.e turn teletext on with one button, but you have to remove it with a completely different button, very illogical, and other features you can turn on and off with the same button, confusing to say the least, and if you don't mind sound without any depth/bass then buy it for the looks, the picture quality is quite good.

Good points:
Gorgeous design - I owned the previous model Samsung and purchased this as a second tv. Wonderful picture quality and much better support for inputs via hdmi when using an HTPC. This samsung now supports 1:1 pixel mapping at 1360x768 over HDMI whereas my previous model samsung did not.
