    I saw one of these on display in a department store in Sheffield. If I was in the market for a largish RPTV its probably the one I'd buy.

    The image was easily bright enough in the brightly-lit shop, and its sharpness, geometry, and total lack of ANY convergence error, line structure, or refresh rate flicker, made the CRT RP device next to it look positively dire.

    You can just about see the pixel structure if you get too close. Contrast seemed to be more than adequate.

    There is just the standard warning about all LCD devices - make sure you can see before you buy - to ensure that you get one without any bad pixels. I don't know what Samsung's policy on this set is, but many LCD manufacturers deem that a certain number of bad pixels is "acceptable" - a position I suspect that you would not share. So make sure you can check you have a "good" one before you buy.

    I would avoid this set like the plague...

    Gets dusty real quick, you can see the dust behind the screen easily enough.

    Has too many operational quirks to list, the remote signal is barely ever recognised.

    I had strong flaring on reds. Samsung customer service is a joke.

    Need I go on (there is a long thread if you do a search where I go on no end about the probs.

    Now have a Panasonic 42 and that is buggered too. But I will accept a new Panny, I refused a replacement Samsung. Nice idea, nice size - completely lousy in practise.
