This TV replaces the 2010 40" version I had before and this up dated version continues the high standards set by the original. Improvements have been made to the design with the much thinner bezel and the updated menu system which is much clearer and easier to follow. Set up is very easy as it guides you through all the basic options you need to be able to start viewing pictures.
Picture quality is once again superb with high def images, everything is crystal clear with no real evidence of artifacts. Even in such a short period of time I have noticed improvements to the overall picture quality especially fast moving objects. Standard def pictures, are as you would expect far less detailed but as these are replaced it will become less of an issue. I would advise that you play with the settings as the factory set ones impact on the quality of the picture, spend some time with this and you will not be disappointed.
Sound is, as you would expect is lacking in depth owing to the very thin case but it is very detailed and the surround sound effect is not bad, certainly much better than previous sets I have had.
Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending this TV. Samsung have produced set another strong set and this is supported by the various high reviews there sets receive.
