Abul, Luton Sports and games fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
SD picture is good but excellent when viewed in full HD. Sound is also good but much better when connected to a surround system.
Bad points:
TV has to be turned off at the mains as there is no power button on the TV (only a standby button). HDMI connections at the back are on the right side of the TV rather than in the middle (might suit some). Part of the TV frame turns red when sunlight falls on that part (some might like this). Attracts dust too easily (common with black tvs).

Good points:
Great picture when watching DVD's or using the xbox360 both via HD leads, but via standard sky+ it can be grainy.
Bad points:
The volume isn't great but this is compensated by the surround sound DVD system.

Manufacturer's Description

52" FHD Ready LCD TV

With exquisite design and unique harmonious qualities, the LCD TV Series 6 reflects nature’s essential elements. Its inspirational design evokes the depths of emotion that have never been seen on a TV screen before. The combination of premium performance and aesthetic elegance makes for a truly stunning TV that sets new standards.

FHD Ready 1,080p
Experience the highest definition possible today with Full HD 1,080p. Blu Ray movies and next generation gaming come to life on your screen with the 1,920 × 1,080 resolution providing such a clear image you truly feel part of the action.

50,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
With a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 50,000:1, images are presented with power, precision and lifelike detail. The Digital Dynamic Contrast is controlled by a variable backlight behind the panel. The internal dimming or brightening of the LCD backlight creates incredibly dark and bright images making for a clearer natural image.

DNIe Pro

Its advanced Colour and Motion Optimisers deliver incredibly lifelike images, and Contrast and Detail Enhancers combine to provide you with deeper depth of colour.

100Hz Motion Plus
100Hz Motion Plus technology estimates and inserts an extra frame between frames to create a more comfortable viewing experience. The extra frame make images appear seamless to your eyes, and eliminates the motion judder and image blurring that can occur when watching movies and sports. Even the fastest action scenes are presented with precision and clarity.

Ultra Clear Panel
With its combination of high and low reflection layers, the Ultra Clear Panel performs perfectly in any lighting condition. By eliminating ambient light reflection, pictures not only remain pure at all times, but are also comfortable for your eyes. The integrity of the image and high performance of the screen ensure that pictures are always deep and detailed.

4 HDMI
100% pure digital connection synchronises audio and video signals, ensuring no data loss and pure viewing perfection. Equipped with 4HDMI inputs, the SAMSUNG LCD TV Series 6 is more than a sensational TV; it has the ability to be the centrepiece of your digital world.
