Steve, Wanstead, London Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Top quality for the price !
Samsung "Share All" allows direct wireless link from router to laptop via WiFi.
Also allows direct wireless playback from my iPhone to the TV screen.
Converts 2D to 3D pictures using the active 3D glasses. (Even old colour films !!)
No comparison to the picture on my 4 year old 42" LG Plasma, this Samsung is far superior !!
Would I buy another for another room ?.... Absolutely !!!
Bad points:
Only sound output is via digital optical cable.
No headphone out socket.
Bolts for wall mounting not supplied with this TV. (4 x M8 bolts required - 30mm in my case).
Not the version with direct internet link/capabilities. (At least until Samsung change this via software update at some point).

Phil, Glasgow Multi-purpose viewer

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
The good points first, 3D is great, sound is decent.
Bad points:
Now the bad points and the reason I put overall rating as 1, the screen flickers when watching football which is poor, the screen also gets quite a bit of ghosting but this does disappear quickly so not really an issue.

Now for the worst bit and the reason the TV is going back today, the buzzing is terrible, you can clearly hear it when watching the TV at normal levels and its really annoying at quiet scenes in films etc

I have since googled this problem and it seems Samsung plasmas are very bad for this and it is a common fault, some sets seem to be worse than others, either way if buzzing noises annoy you and you have sensitive hearing do not buy this set.

A little more on the buzzing, its very loud when cold and gets a little quieter when it heats up, the pitch of the buzzing changes depending on the whats on the screen, like it gets higher the brighter the screen is etc.

Very disappointed to say the least, I really rate Samsung and have many of there products including an LCD TV, blu ray player, camcorder, camera and even a fridge so you can see why I'm very annoyed about this.
