Lisa, Kent Occasional TV watcher

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very pleased with this tv, took less than 10 mins to tune in. The picture is great, so is the sound.
Bad points:
Only 1 scart, but makes up for it with the HDMI. I replaced my very old dvd player to one that uses HDMI, so it solved the problem cheaply and easily. Other than that I don't think there are any bad points. :)

Paul, Southend Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This TV is extremely easy to set up. I'm never usually stumped by setting things up but occasionally you have to refer to a manual - not in this case! The wizard menus were all very easy to follow. I do have a very good aerial for Freeview reception, even so, the tuner on this Samsung is far more sensitive than my previous LCD TV.

I have only had this TV for a few hours and am blown away by the picture quality. The 600Hz refresh rate really smooths out the action.

I was able to see the set in action in store against other more expensive LCDs and LEDs and sneakily put them on standard Freeview channels, rather than the upscaled demo picture being shown. There was no contest... this TV beat more expensive rivals hands down.

I was worried about not getting Full HD but nothing is broadcast in that high resolution anyway... you'll only get that from a blu-ray etc.

The sound from the on board speakers is also good - the slim design obviously means that speakers are not going to be excellent but they're certainly good enough. I can always attach external speakers and audio out connections are provided for that purpose.

It's just brilliant. Can't speak highly enough of it!!!

TV Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

600Hz subfield Motion
Ever notice how with plasma screens, motions can get a little jerky? Unless you happen to be looking at one of Samsung’s new plasma TVs. Every frame is seamlessly smooth because we put 10 full subfields into each frame. That’s 600Hz. So contours are crisper, scrolling text sharper and the juddering issue is finally put to rest.

3 HDMI
All it takes is one cable to connect your TV to your other audio and video sources. Our HDMI slot allows you to import all kinds of content without compression including pictures and videos from your digital camcorders and multimedia PCs. Now enjoying it all on a wide HD screen couldn’t be easier.

Mega Dynamic Contrast (PDP)
Getting a true cinematic experience used to mean going to the cinema. But with Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio true cinematic clarity comes to plasmas. Every frame is saturated with dense, rich colour. Blacks have more depth and the whites are unbelievably pristine. The only thing missing is a large head blocking your view.

Every angle is right with Clear Image Panel.
Amazing picture quality cant exist with blurring on your screen. Thats why we developed Clear Image Panel for our new plasma TVs. It uses a film filter instead of conventional glass to eliminate layered images and produce ones that are ultra-clear and blur-free from almost every angle.

Wide Colour Enhancer
Capturing nature is the goal of an artist. We’ve achieved it as well with our Wide Colour Enhancer. Our unique 3D colour stretching technology saturates each pixel until it achieves the true colour and luminescence intended by nature. So every colour on the RGB spectrum is brought to life. It is a work of art.

Response Time 0.0001ms
It’s hard to beat the speed of light. That’s how fast our plasma screens respond to each new image. 0.001ms is all it takes for each pixel to re-generate clear, crisp, robust colours. That’s why there’s no blur or ghosting in the picture. And there’s less strain on your eyes. You can’t beat that.
