My mother bought the 46in version of this, the main reason was for the small bezel, the TV sits in front of a window, and because the bezel is so small we were able to get a 46in and only going slightly higher than her old 32in. Also the back of her old TV was grey, this one is black, so from outside you wound't even no there was a TV there.

Other features we really like, we added 2 cheap external HD's, and we've used one to act as a PVR and the other for storing Media on. It plays 3D MKV's SBS format too.

The upscaler on this appears to be very good too, but now that HD is broadcasting here, you can certainly tell the difference from SD and HD, BBC HD looks stunning (I think I know why the Dragons are called Dragons from Dragons Den, you can see the scales in there skin :)

Seems like every manufacturer is going for side lit LED with all its inherent issues with black uniformity, not to mention the transistor radio sound quality due to the tiny speakers they are forced to fit because there is no room to fit anything half decent, instead of backlit LED, and all because everybody wants their TV's slimmer than a Rizla. Who cares how deep it is??? If you care about meaningless fashion details more than how it actually performs you deserve everything you get.

Getting properly fed up with TV after TV going for style over substance and with us the consumer having very little choice unless we have exceptionally deep wallets. If people weren't so gullible we may actually see some manufacturers seeing sense and givng us product with less built in picture defects!

Like you say, direct-lit LED TVs seem to have gone the way of the dodo, with only a few manufacturers offering it in their pricey flagship sets (Sony and Philips spring to mind). Such a shame.

Having bought a Sumsung D7000 myself though, I can confirm that it's an excellent set despite the edge-lit backlight. This just makes me wonder how good it would be if it were direct lit though.
