very bad tv.
Terrible viewing angle with disgusting color shift, dead pixels, bluish black, jerky motion(useless fake 100hz), terrible standard definition, excessive blur with movement, very bad shimmering lines, comical chassis and remote control build quality and of course.... panel lottery.
The good: good blue black , low input lag, no flashlights.

Thanks for the heads up. Was considering the TV, now maybe not

Thats not an edge LED, if I am not wrong - only the ES are.
The EH series are direct LED ones though they dont have as many LED clusters as high end devices

Well I was so impressed with this TV, price and quality of picture I bought two, one for ourselves and one for the parents. What was a surprise was the quality of sound. Normally these slim line tvs have a very tinny sound...I had to buy a sound bar for my last one,a Phillips. This one does not nned a sound bar!. Yes it is thicker than some of the more modern ones...but that allows a better loud speaker and it makes all the difference. Viewing angles? the damn thing is light enough to swivel and it can be seen from any reasonable viewpoint. Colours are vivid and I have yet tofind a dead pixel on either.

I'm confused about the Freeview HD. You say you need a LAN conector, but what does this need to plug into. Also I just been onto John Lewis to enquire & they say it's not HD & that on the Samsung manual it say's there's no LAN port. Any more info?? Great site by the way

I too was initially misled by the John Lewis website as the headline description is just Freeview & I nearly discounted this model. However the detailed specifications on the JL website have the details correct :-Digital tunerFreeview HD"

Can I use a dongle to access the Internet on this TV? If so, does anyone know which dongle will work best? thanks, Max

So far the piclture is very good for this level of TV. However, I can't find the flesh tone adjustment in the menu. Would like instructions on what menu item this is listed under.

How did you try to connect to your PC? I can't think of any reason why this wouldn't work. Did you change the input to HDMI1?

Does this tv support ARC (Audio Return Channel)

The reason the back end sticks out so much is because it is a 'Direct-lit' TV. Direct-lit is similar to back-lit accept it uses less LED's behind the screen to cut costs. If you have less LED's behind the screen they then have to be placed further back so that they can illuminate the entire screen. Hence why the back end is bigger than normal. It's like holding a torch close to a wall. Hold it close to the wall and it won't light up much of the wall. But hold it further back and it lights up more wall. =)
