Most helpful reviews

Anthony, London

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
After reading the forums I thought the sound was going to be poor, but I guess Samsung resolved that issue. I can find little to complain about for this TV.
Bad points:
Most of my stuff is coming in through different sources (Eg Sky, Blu Ray, PC, Game consoles, etc). The only bad thing I found was that "Source" goes only in on direction, so if I want to go back on, I have to scroll through all the sources.

Malvyn, Cardiff UK. Plasma TV Fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Can be taken off the stand very easily and with a wall bracket can be fixed to any kind of wall, 2 people
would be able to handle this project without any real hardship.
Beautiful and clear picture.
Bad points:
Because the connection points are to the left of the television as you look at it,if you only have connection
points to the right as we have,you will need to fit extra long scart lead connections.
