I purchased this TV as I wanted a bigger screen. I previously had a 32" Toshiba which has gone upstairs. Easy to set up, I have a V+ box so didn't bother with setting the Freeview channels. The picture in SD is great, really clear but in HD it is awesome. The FA Cup yesterday was great to watch in HD and nature type programmes and Bear Grylls type channels are superb in clarity and detail. The sound is fine - I don't have a surround sound system and was "concerned" that the audio might not be that great but after a few tweaks of the equaliser it is fine. There is a touch of red that appears around the frame but it's hardly noticeable. Under the Samsung logo you may see a red light on pictures of this product but you can't really notcie it when you have the TV set up. I did query this with Samsung as I thought maybe this light should be more noticeable but it's not a light at all - more of a marketing thing I think. I have used the USB connection to watch photos and films which work well. My Toshiba DVD player however does not play colour pictures - shows films in black and white. Don't know why - it is a scart to scart connection. But anyway I have purchased the Samsung pebble DVD HDMI player which I will collect tomorrow to hook up to the TV. However the Wii which also connects via the scart (3 component leads into a scart) plays fine in full colour. So if you fancy a nice big screen (especially for the World Cup) I would definitely recommend this one - and it's a good price.
