I received my UE40EH5000 about two weeks ago which I bought from Amazon, and I'm very happy with it.
I've been using a Pioneer 43" plasma for the past six or so years but have got bored with screen retention, so decided to get a cheap LCD until something better comes along, such as the OLED tvs which are supposed to be released this year.
I'm going to keep the Samsung for four or five years and hopefully OLED will be as good as it's supposed to be, and get one of them then.
I've tried 'P40L0''s calibrated settings (from this forum) and they look good enough for me: The picture quality is sharper than my plasma with better blacks (and I don't have to worry about screen retention anymore).
Sound is good enough for me aswell when watching a bit of tv! I have an Onkyo when I watch a Blu ray.
I can't believe that such a cheap tv has such a good picture!
I'm also happy about the connections being on the back: I was expecting them to be on the side which would not have been great. This must be due to the extra room they have to work with, compared to the 32 inch I guess.
A few questions:
1. Is the tv 24P compatible?
2. I use 'Standard Picture mode' for all inputs, which are calibrated but should I use 'Movie mode' when watching blu ray or a HD movie on one of the HD tv channels. I'm not too sure what to do?
3. In 'Picture option'/ 'film mode'/ - What is the difference between 'auto 1' and 'auto 2' and should I be using it or not?
