Gary, Gloucester

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Good price (cheap) but it was a samsung afterall.
Bad points:
The product details were wrong on the website where it states you can connect to PC via VGA - you cant!! You can only connect if your purchase a DVI to HDMI adaptor but you cannot get a VGA to HDMI adaptor as one is digital the other analogue. This was the sole reason I bought the TV was to connect to a laptop.

J, Skegness Multi-purpose viewer

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great picture and tidy design, this tv is nearly all screen. Lovely clean lines would fit right into anyones room.
Bad points:
I have a 21 foot long front room and the remote struggles from far end of room. Our old samsung did not suffer from this. The old samsung had proper buttons on the side for such things as av and volume, they were very prominent and easy to distinguish. The new samsung has the controls on the front on the right side of the screen casing, you can barely see them and it is like they are in braille! As a result you dont EVER use these. Also there is no on/off switch which although you dont use it often, it would have been welcome.
