Samsung UE55J5100 55 -inch LCD 1080 pixels 200 Hz TV – Not trying to be ‘smart’ and that’s a good thing

Good service good picture easy to set up.

Dvds look as good as you’d expect but bluray is astonishing. Picture needed tweaking a little from factory standards, if you know a bit about this you’ll be well away, if not try an av forum. The screen is also incredibly light, easy for one person to lift, whereas my old 42″ plasma was a 2 man job. Also tried ps3 on this screen, and again, it’s very good. This is an hd tv for hd pictures. Bear that in mind and you will be impressed.

Not trying to be ‘smart’ and that’s a good thing. I’ve only had this tv a few days, but i’ve been very impressed with it so far. The picture quality, colour rendition and sound are all great. It’s quick to start and the configuration is simple and easy. I chose this model because i’ve yet to find a ‘smart’ tv with software that i don’t hate. I’m also a bit bothered about the possibility of my tv spying on me, or trying to shove adverts in my face. Instead i use a raspberry pi with openelec to stream anything i want to watch. 5 stars because it really does what i expected of it and the picture is so good. Some reservations worth noting:there are only 2 hdmi inputs, which is fine if you’re using it with an av amplifier, but not really enough for a typical setup of set top box, bluray/dvr and games console. No hdmi arc (audio return channel) – so connection to an av amplifier needs to be done over an optical cable.
