Based purely on what I've read I've gone for the Toshiba over the Samsung
It's had many good reviews and is excellent value for it's spec which includes 2 hdmi ports
Got it for £575 delivered from Currys using (now expired) 10% off code
Won't know till its opened on Xmas day if I've done the right thing!
Bro-in-law had the Samsung and I wasn't over impressed with the sound which seemed a bit tinny to me and the black gloss finish is a nightmare for showing dust
One thing the Samsung does have over the Toshiba is if you want to use it as a pc monitor, you can still have the TV as PIP
