The plus points are its so easy to programme and set up. However the minus points are; The plug and lead supplied was European not UK and although I wrote to Amazon there was no reply so they clearly have no interest in the fact that for a lot of people this could be a real problem - I bought another lead. Its a pity that manufactures don't put the transformer in the product, or design it to look attractive, rather than having to hide the thing somewhere (marketing images never show this aspect). The product is slim but if you want to display it on coffee table rather than a shelf the back is not as well considered. The Samsung replaces a Philips which was a much better design in all aspects but was very very difficult to programme and failed after less than two years. Would I recommend the Samsung - I might.
