Claire, Lymington / Hampshire Sports and games fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Amazing picture quality for the price, love the swivel base, and like the amount of HDMI points. It integrates well with all game systems and SKY.
Bad points:
Its bad but slight niggle is having to go back into the menu each time to access 3D, however the abilty to turn 2D into 3D far outweighs any negativity, overall a recommeded product.

Simon, Lichfield Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I think this TV is the dogs twitchier, I really do.

I have a Phillips 1080p Aurea and the image quality on the Samsung surpasses this by some margin.

It has all of the required connections, i even have my PC running through it and also sound from the sound card to the input in the TV. (im using the 3DTV play to play my "backed" up 3D movies....great.)

The image is pin sharp and colour reproduction is excellent. The lack of 1080p is not noticeable and for this much money who cares. I nearly paid twice as much for a 1080p 3D TV which i doubt would have been better.
Bad points:
There is a little refelction on the Screen in bright daylight, but this is a minor issue.
I would have liked a little more swivel on the stand but again this is a very minor issue.

Bad points:

Mark, Newport Sports and games fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Amazing vision/sound quality. Very ease to use. Absolutely stunning television that i can't recommend enough. Displays a fantastic picture through my cable source and my Playstation 3 games console. A dedicated 3D button on the controls is a nice touch and the setup is straightforward and easy to use.
Bad points:
No Glasses are included with this television but for the price i paid, this is understandable. And inevitably, due to the nature of plasma televisions, some screen burn can occur. Though there is a feature on the television that can eliminate screen burn witthin a few minutes.
