Rated 5 out of 5 by from EPIC TV Saw all the other UHD TV's and the image on these screens seemed to 'pop' more. Great colour, sound is ok. Plays all the media from the hard drive and Blu-rays. Very Happy. Now to continue testing :-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than the competition's... No, really! I was actually surprised that this 55" Model was better than a compeditor's model (except for the speakers - which most people won't use as they have their own Surround Sound Systems already). Fact: This Model recognizes more file formats than the compeditor's model (Particularly: MKV and FLV, which the compeditor's model doesn't support). Fact: This TV has a HEVC decoder (which will be used for 4K video... the other one doesn't. It is also used for any video input to smooth out upscaling of lower quality video. Fact: I have tried different video quality sizes and formats personally on this TV at Harvey Norman Garden City. Eveything 576p and above looked great (well, 576p actually looked good and quite watchable, higher resolution video 720p and up looked even better). 480p in FLV fomat didn't look so good, but that's to be expected of both 480p and FLV format. Recommendation: If you get this TV, you should also get a good Blu-Ray Player that will give good Video output, AND get a good quality HDMI (MINIMUM) v1.4, preferably v2.0-supporting cable for the best quality output to this TV. This way, even DVD's should be watchable. But... once you go Blu-Ray, you never go back...
