    Hi everyone,

    Well I am now a proud owner of the Sammy 50" TV. Got it on Friday from Costco in Watford, they had 8 in stock! It came with the shelves and three years warranty all for £2232 - BARGAIN!

    I have to say this set is awesome. I d/l'd a few HD clips and watched them through just VGA as I dont have the DVI to HDMI cable and the pq was stunning.

    My initial perception of this tv is:

    PQ is great, even sky looks good (much better than my ex Sony 50" LCD RP)
    Sound is good, bass is a little lacking but not bad for normal tv
    Looks are ace, makes the room look very modern
    Features are great too, colour control and DNIe are just invaluable for a crappy sky feed.

    Now the bad:
    I have noticed some smudging on my set even though it has the holes under the screen! They come and go and are only visible on pure white scenes. I will wait and see if this gets better or worse and then decide on what to do.

    The reds on this TV are sometimes very strong so this needs adjusting on the very good My Colour Control menu.


    Overall this TV is far superior to the Sony 50" LCD RP that I had for a while.

    GO GET ONE!

    Congrats indie24, you won't be dissapointed!

    Once you have yours you may be able to help me with the smudging issue...
    Best way to test is to load Sky Active, just as the blue loading screen clears a pure white screen is dissplayed for a few seconds with the Red, Green, Yellow and Blue buttons at the bottom. Press the Red Still button on the Sammy remote to freeze the picture on this white frame. Now stand back a little (3-4ft) and move up and down a little. Can you see any light marks on the inside of the screen???

    They come and go on mine, they do seem to be better now then when I first go it. If they get better and not worse then I'll be happy, else its off to Costco's to get it replaced! :(
