Bob, South Queeensrferry

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Beautiful looking tv with great connectivity. Once it was conected it up, it took a couple of hours playing with it and getting to know the controls and adjustments,but once mastered it gives great pictures. There is almost to much to adjust so everyone should find a setting to suite them.It is obviously a must to cable up first if you are going to mount it on the wall, and I would recommend installing all cables you might possibly use ,even if not right away ,to save lifting it of the wall to install cables.The set is 1080p and works great with upscaling or blue ray players giving great results. I`m still getting getting used to it all but after considering at length other tv`s have no regrets at all in buying this one.
Bad points:
Be prepared to dust every day if you are fussy as the piano black shows up dust more, but it`s worth it as its a great addition to the look of any room. One complaint is the slow response of the remote, being slower than most i`ve used in the past, also the button layout is very poor, particularly the tv guide button which is right at the bottom, Samsung needs to rethink the entire layout to put the most used buttons in the handiest positions.

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Gloss black looks good on the wall when it's switched off (which is a lot of the time). Found the sound quality perfectly acceptable without any extra systems, but then we aren't really in it for the whole 'home cinema' experience. The PS3 comes out well on it too, as do Blu Ray DVD's. I'm happy enough with it - we could have paid a lot more for the same thing.
Bad points:
The image in SD is OK but not great, and when there is a darkly-lit scene the image can 'drag' a bit. Once you notice it does this it's then impossible not to spot it every time.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Crisp, Clear Picture. The Unit itself looks stunning.
Bad points:
Sound is pretty average at best (due to the speakers being behind the television. I have wall mounted the Tele and all of the sound is pretty muffled and of quite poor quality. I've purchased a home cinema kit to counter this.
