Watch out for banding and clouding on these sets

Could we have the cold voters supply a cheaper option being as I am considering buying this?

I think people are voting cold because it's Pixmania. Very mixed reviews, so bear that in mind before committing.

banding and clouding galore on this set ... loads of info on why you should aviod this series samsung ... why would you buy this even at a brilliant price with the flaws , when other manufacturers have very good offerings on this set

and just for the record i returned at 46" of these and bought a d8000

Isn't the received wisdom with Pixmania that there's a high chance they'll take your nomey, suddenly discover they didn't have any stock to sell in the first place, then you'll spend up to 3 months trying to get your own money back!

Pros: Excellent HD and SD picture, Smart TV, plenty of apps, frugal power use

Cons: Distortions on mid-frequency audio, poor 3D TV effect, web browsing is clunky

Just because your set seems fine does not mean others will be , these samsung led tv's suffer badly from banding or clouding.

Yours probably has it you just don't know what to look for.

I'd go with john lewis for the 5 year guarantee. They will let you swap it out until your happy these won't.

Myself personally I'm waiting for a drop in price on the 7000\8000 sets to replace my c6530 the new one's have just been released.

Post a pic of your set andi, have you had a play with it or left it as it came in the box.

ive taken a pic but how do u get it on here?

Fantastic TV with great 3D
I'm not sure why the expert panel thought the 3D was a mess, because my own experience of the 3D on this TV is excellent. Viewing angles were great, images were crystal clear just like normal HD, and there was almost no ghosting. Perhaps the TV has been updated since it was reviewed by the expert panel.Normal TV viewing is stunning. TV and videos in HD are amazingly crisp and clear. In fact, some films look so real that it's almost like watching a documentary and being there.The audio was probably the only aspect of the TV that is average. It took some time messing with the audio settings and EQ to get a good sound for daily viewing. But when watching films with the audio going through a Dolby-surround hi-fi system, the integrated TV audio becomes irrelevant, because what you have is an amazing mini-cinema in your home!To summarise, yes the integrated audio is only average. But the normal TV, HD TV, and the 3D TV are all stunning, which more than make up for the average audio. Highly recommended and excellent value.

I heated this, even though I own it. its a mixed bag.

pros
*great colours (when you set it right)
*HD looks fantastic
*3D depends on the recoding/source, sometimes it looks great. sometimes I think I can see the 'SD issue' only sometimes, which means I don't notice the resolution problem often
*media streaming is great - but if wrong format you need a NAS that decodes for it.
*wireless is great
*takes USB portable drives as well as sticks, nearly all tvs do now...
*smart TV seemed good - but as expected seems a gimmick - I've not used
*skype if you pay for the extra bits needed. camera/mic?
*no banding on my set

cons
*The clouding: is this the 'searchlights' issue? in the bottom corners on a dark/black screen you get what look like searchlights glowing up the screen. BAD, but I only see this when my TV boots, honestly in my case I can ignore when watching dark films, and I am fussy. its a lottery as to if you get this, some tvs are fine.
*poor sound - the model this replaced had a sort of sub/bass speaker on its back and while obviously not loud, it did give you the low frequencies and did sound so much better.
*not as slim as its predecessor - strange given no more bass speaker?!
*MAJOR FAULT FOR ME: it loses some of its memory for picture settings, I hate the setting it defaults to, looks awful. firmware update did not fix this (not in the last model either, same fault!)
*small niggle, the slim frame makes the tv look very small for a 40, compared to the previous model which had a massive bezel/frame - that actually made the screen look larger

bare in mind I've noticed issues most users wont - as I owned the previous model to directly compare with
*EH? I'm sure I have model number, but the images look more like the old model? Ignore my bezel/frame comments!

Certainly seems like it. I think they probably adopt the same business model as 'We Are Electricals'. They do not hold stock, but send items out plain packaged from their supplier. When that supplier run out of stock (I can testify that Samsung's print division are useless at getting stock to distributors), it all goes **** up for the customer.
