Out the box and setup is easy, the default screen settings are for shops with bright lights so you will need to reduce the brightness and contrast a bit. I found putting the energy saver option to low helped alot.
Picture quality from the built in freeview unit is normal, but play a DVD and the picture quality takes a huge leap up. Tones are fresh and sharp, there is a little motion blur, but TBH you realy have to be looking for it. The dynamic contrast can be noticed when the set varies it, but only just. Game play (via xbox360) is another fantastic step up again in picture quality, even from my old CRT. Game mode seems to increase screen brightness but not much more. Everything looks pin sharp and smooth. I was very suprised at the clarity of dark levels in games. The side card readers work easliy, just plug them in and press menu from the remote. The Remote works very well. The volume/programme up/down buttons can be lit so you can easily find them.
Overall the set if fantastic value- Picture quality from DVD's and HD sources is fantastic Freeview quality is just as good as any other set.
Sound- i bought the Samsung 2.1 home thearter so cant comment on the sets internal speakers.
- sound is quite poor; it's a bit flat and quiet, so will have to invest in a sound system for it
- It has Picture-in-Picture, which unfortunately only works with a HD signal, and not with my existing freeview or Sky digital
- Be careful if inserting a Sony memory stick duo - make sure you use the adaptor. I learnt this from bitter experience!
But overall, a great buy.
I have used this with ps3 and the humax 9200 pvr and have had no problems. A review below says it has only 1 hdmi,mine has 2. Dunno whether they have revised the model or not!
The extended colour gamut (more colours) makes a noticeable difference compared to the old crt and older samsung i have, colours are more vibrant and rich,the default settings being more than acceptable.
I have just been watching holby city,and there is a lot more detail noticeable, some of the actors having bad skin spots, you can really see all this. I watch from about 8 feet away and its wall mounted (2 man job) too. The picture with ps3 input goes to 1080i and looks great. I have watched some hd trailers:- casino royal, xmen , league of xtrodinary gentlemen-ohhhhhhhhh baby it rocks.
Downsides-as below,the sound is a weak-point but more than adequate,it wont blow your ears off. Your not doing the picture justice if u use the onboard sound.
If using the supplied stand,it can swivel about 30 degrees either way.
Overall the gloss black finish which has really become samsungs trademark in flatscreens oozes quality topped off with the blue light when in standy gives it an expensive feel.
I was thinking of buying the 32 inch model,but for the extra cash,this is worth it. As long as u sit about 8 feet or more back,any closer with standard def tv and you may see a little pixelation.
verdict-another samsung bargain from amazon!!!
Updated-the sound thru HDMI is much better than the standard sound.
The only reason i haven't given it 5 stars is that the connectivity could be better. There is only one HD connector, one compsoite and two scarts which is not really enough nowadays. However i am not at all bothered about this as i can hook my xbox (btw HD gears of war is just unbelievable) up through the composite input and have two scarts free.
I am also get the issue that was described above. When a bright primary colour is displayed the tv flashes black and white and it loses sound. This is really annoying. It happens for me when i am watching normal tv through a Samsung VBox (virgin media). I need to phone them about this.
