Brilliant. No better TV for those without Sky or cable/internet TV,
This review is from: Samsung UE46ES7000 46 -inch LCD 1080 pixels 800 Hz 3D TV (Electronics)
I bought this TV in 2012 and it's superb.
If you go to an electronics retailer, they use an HD source such as cable TV or Sky, so you will see very little difference between brands. HOWEVER, if you don't have an HD source, and just rely on good old terrestrial signal, no other TV will come close. The difference is staggering, in particular if you want a larger screen (46' and bigger).
Of course if you have an HD source (through freeview now as well as the internet or satellite), you will be equally pleased.
The TV came with a free tablet that you can use as a keyboard to surf the net, or as a remote control. this will work is you pair the TV and the tablet together through your home wifi. It won't work otherwise. If you have movies, music on your tablet, they will play through the TV instantly at the press of an icon on the tablet.
The only let down is the voice control. That software needs work and the newer versions are probably better. The TV turns itself on and off whilst you're away. it's a software bug, nothing you can do. A screen menu also pops up from time to time, presenting you with some options. it can be annoying, but it will disappear as soon as you press any key on the remote. For the all the qualities this TV has to offer, this is only a small let down, and you can cancel voice and motion control from the main menu.
It's easy to use, even my 77 years old mother has bought this model and she can use it without difficulty.
The sound could be improved, but that's the compromise you have to make when you buy a flat screen TV. Mine is paired with a 3D Onkyo home cinema, and the two combined, what a blast!
