|LED Display Technology: LED (light-emitting diode) TVs are actually a type of LCD TV. LCD HDTVs use standard compact fluorescent tubes to illuminate the picture. LED HDTVs, on the other hand, replace those fluorescent tubes with backlighting technology. LED TVs might therefore say "LCD display" on the packaging--this is perfectly normal.

These telly's have a number of inputs and for each input there are five preset Viewing Modes which can be customized. Every input stores its Viewing Modes separately from the other inputs, and so all the inputs are independently customizable in terms of their five Viewing Modes. So first you have to select an input to customize, then go to the Picture Setting menu and select the Viewing Mode you want to customize for that input. You'll have to do this for every input that you'll be using. Sound setting are also stored independently per input. Although this may sound long winded, the end result is that different sources can all have their own optimized video and sound settings, which will kick in automatically once set up.
Like many LED TV's the firmware moves the backlight up and down depending on its analysis of what's on screen, and this behavior unfortunately cannot be totally disabled on this model. Fortunately, these backlight shifts are fairly subtle in the first two viewing modes (Dynamic and Normal). The other three viewing modes should be avoided as they do suffer from very pronounced automatic backlight shifts. For each input I have customized the Normal viewing mode (selected for everyday use), and the Dynamic viewing mode (which I switch to on the rare occasions when the content may require a bit of a brightness boost). Once set up, you can simply leave each input on its customized Normal Mode for most of the time.
Be aware that on this model selecting a different colour temperature will result in quite dramatic changes in the contrast and gamma profile of the display.Read more ›
The picture. Out the box it's amazing for a computer game, but for more realistic colours and softer viewing I just needed to adjust the TV settings to something a little less garish and bright. This isn't a fault, it's set to what most people like these days at switch on. It's got a better picture than my previous viera TV and cost half the price! Sound is OK for a slim TV with some tone adjustments. I didn't need a smart TV as I just use my TV as a monitor, I don't even use the TV's tuner. Most people these days use roku, sky, humax etc so having a multitude of internet added apps just seems a waste as I never used them on the previous TV. Despite tech specs this TV does have an ethernet connection although I have no idea what it's for.
Only 2 HDMI inputs. A bit stingy to say the least but it's enough for my set top box and ps3.
TV gets 5 stars and I'm far from disappointed. Excellent if you don't need all the bangs and whistles (that you'll never use)
I had to re-program my Sky remote to get all the features (volume control) to work, which took 5 seconds. See: http://help.sky.com/articles/program-your-sky-remote-to-control-your-tv. (Code 1664 worked straight away).
