Any reviews?

I'm very happy with mine. The HDR+ feature on regular non HDR stuff makes the picture look quite nasty so have left it off for non HDR sources.

I also turned off the digital "enhancements" that are on by default. That has improved the video a lot. Before, fast movement would look very poor. I always turn off most "enhancements" anyway as they just introduce extra processing that interferes with the original video.

I've only tested 1080i footage so far and have been impressed after performing the above changes. Will sort out 4K footage soon.

Only had it a day and I'm having the issue with watching sky but I find the HD picture great even though I havnt really sat down to calibrate the settings. Standard definition is ok nothing to write home about but again I havnt adjusted any settings yet. I find it excellent for using Netflix and Plex built in which let's me get rid of the roku3 box I had. Also streaming from a pc is flawless to. The OS is very quick apps open and close fast. I'm very pleased so far once I get sky sorted.

Are you streaming over the wifi/LAN? I have a NAS drive in the utility. It and the TV are both on a wired LAN. Can I access the NAS from the TV? Haven't looked very hard yet though, I must admit. Can get rid of Android box if I can access the NAS and can then connect the Android box to the old TV, which I plan to move to the bedroom.

What NAS device do you have? Are you able to install Plex onto it? If so, you can have Plex on the TV as the client.

It's a D-Link DNS-323 - a few years old but does the job. Haven't heard about Plex or whether I can install it. I'll do some research, thank you

I'd agree with this as well as soon as I get time I'll mess around with settings as well and turn off most of the processing options they seem to cause more hassle then they fix on most tv's I've had.

Swapped my HDMI lead and the sky issue seems to be gone fingers crossed. If anyone has some good picture settings for this could you share them.

Would anyone be able to recommend a TV around 50" for around the 600 mark? The TVs listed here seem to be out of stock in Galway.
Would the Sony's that are in DID or Curry's be any better than LG or Samsung?
There are so many model numbers that it is pretty confusing.Thanks.

I had a 50" Samsung UE50MU6100 and could recommend it. Should be available for just under €600.

Don't know if you can get VLC Player app on a Samsung TV but I have it on my Sony TV and can play videos from the local network.

Or consider this 1? Think there's 15% off for first order bringing it well within your budget. Check out ambilight vids on YouTube!
