Summary: Bought this for a kids room. Still in use. was BEFORE Freeview HD still picks up a decent amount of channels. Screen is decent quality although viewing angles are short, anything outside direct viewing can be blurred
Summary: Good visual performance for about 18 months until the dreaded white ghosting started to appear at the edges due to the edge lighting these panels use. 2 years and 11 months after purchase it has gone bang and is now on the way to the tip. Yes these are cheap Vs Sony & Panasonic but there is a reason - be prepared to replace a Samsung every 3 years...
Summary: I bought this telly a few years ago. At the time it was priced £299.99 and it was great. never had a problem with it, perfect size for a bedroom or gym. overall since my buy i have nothing bad to say, the picture quality is great, If your in need of a start up telly. id buy this.. since we have replaced this with a 50" 3D telly.
Excerpt: I purchased this TV in Feb 2010 for £349. Before buying I had shopped around, checked out online reviews for many LCD TV's. Having seen many favourable ones for this particular product I decided to go ahead and buy it. Taking it out the box at home, I was impressed with the attractiveness and sleekness of it. It was quite straightforward attaching the base. I think it is wall mountable as well however. Tuning it in with the auto tune feature did not work well.
Excerpt: I bought this television a year ago for £350 and it was proved to be an excellent buy. It looks stylish and will fit in with most set ups. I have this TV connected to my laptop with a cable and the picture quality is brilliant and comes with a wide range of settings to alter the colours for better viewing quality. It can be quickly changed from various sound settings to suit what you're watching, ie: films, music etc. The sound quality is very, very good.
Excerpt: after perusing the net to find a new tv, samsung was one of the few brands i expected to find in my price range. i purchased it from an ebay retailer for £200 with free delivery and it came in the box umopened with all the trimmings and ive never looked back. its fantastic! the picture quality is great, the sound quality is great and everything is so simple and easy to use.
Perfect for all types of viewing and difficult to fault!

Excerpt: My housemates and I were searching for a new TV to occupy an empty corner in our new student digs. I noticed that Makro were doing a great deal on this TV and, after checking out the features (below) I managed to persuade the others that this would be a good purchase. We wanted a reasonably affordable TV with good quality picture output for movies and gaming, but a good size for our living room. Having had this TV for a while I can say that it fits the bill perfectly!
Summary: Colour, contrast and definition are excellent. Sound a bit sibilant but not too irritating. On/off switch going to standby only is annoying and a second SCART socket would have been welcome. There is some breakup of picture into squares with very rapid motion eg running water but this is not too intrusive - sport is fine. The TV comes with a detailed manual but connecting up cable box and DVD recorder were still a bit of a puzzle.
