Good: Design, picture quality, connectivity
Bad: Needs to be firmware upgraded to do 1080p over HDMI
Comment: This TV is as good as any I have ever seen, including more expensive models. Remember to tweak the settings though, because the pre-defined ones are far from optimal. Average to great standard-definition upscaling, depending on the source and how it's connected, superb quality on HD. With the prices you can get this TV and its little 40-inch brother for these days, you'll be hard pressed to find a better LCD for your money.
Good: Nice design
Bad: Picture quality
Comment: This is really bad, we have been running this screen with the Samsung Blu-ray DVD player at 1080p and it is no better than a cheap DVD player and a cheap plasma screen. The digital noise makes the image un-watchable, when the bundled Blu-ray DVD S.W.A.T was played, we expected to be blown away however it was an utter dissapointment. This screen was to go into one of our big-spending clients' houses, now we are sending them back to Samsung.
Good: Design, pic quality, PC compatable.
Bad: PIP only works with PC & HDMI modes
Comment: Compared to Sony's W series, this is better value for money. I have cable TV, so a terrestial digituner would be a waste of money, anyway.
