I think this is an excellent telly. The picture quality is superb, the sound is very good and it is beautiful to look at even when switched off! Yes I know, I need to get out more.
At first I thought the picture quality was exceptional only for the game I play (Rise of Nations), but not that much different from my previous 55" telly - also a Samsung - for films. But now, after a few weeks use I've found it is equally good for both. Especially epic or panoramic films. It adds a certain 'depth' to things.
There is though an early problem with the remote control. You know when you get a new telly and you have to get used to dozens and dozens of buttons? With symbols on them that confuse the bejeezus out of you? Well this remote isn't like that. It is very, very minimalistic. Only about a dozen buttons. But they all have multiple uses. Believe me it took some getting used to (bejeezus!). When I did get used to them though, I found them very, very good. Much better than the old style - but be prepared for the this.
All in all a great telly. Ascetically, much better looking than the old 55" flat screen slab, switched on OR off, and for me a winner. (I think I'm actually getting better at the Rise of Nations games he he) - did I say I need to get out a bit more?
