You have said in your review that the lag was quite bad when using a games console. I have read that the tv has a game mode was the lag still noticable when the tv was in this mode.

Also would using a reciever to upscale, have any improvement on this problem?

As stated above i would also like to know which one to go for to (PS50A756 OR LE46A956/LE55A956). I have settled with the thought that i will buy one of these two but not sure which one is the better one.

Please, please can the author John Archer shed some light ? Many thanks

Hi, I'm interested in buying this TV set and then I downloaded the user manual to see all specifications, and to my surprise it has no headphone socket to listen to it by night. I then sent and email to Samsung Customer Service and their response was that the series 4 to 8 has a headphone socket. Then this confirms the Series 9 hasn't. I have still to go to a shop to check it, but for me it's a must!

Hi- when my PC is hooked up to this TV I would be using an HDMI input (ie via a DVI-to-HDMI converter). Would I be affected by the lag issue under these circumstances?
