This TV is an absolute bargain for £499. The quality of the picture is amazing and when hooked up to a PS3 through HDMI it is even better. Cant recommend Play.com highly enough either. I ordered the TV on Wednesday morning and it arrived on Friday Morning.

Had this TV delivered a few days ago and I'm still nothing short of amazed.. absolutely outstanding value for a top quality, attractive HDTV with every feature/mode you could wish for!

I bought this Tv from play and i'm very impressed. Its certainly cheaper than the high street. I've hooked up the ps3 with hd and the picture is brilliant. Standard definition is good too after a little playing about with the settings. I haven't checked the freeview as i have sky. Some reviews said that the sound wasn't that loud but its fine unless your hard of hearing

I have a Samsung 26" for my PC and XBox360 , which is excellent ,so when I ordered the 37" I knew what to expect , and I haven't been disapointed.
Connected everything up, switched on , and followed the on-screen installation instructions, which meant pressing "OK" about 3 times. The set scanned for analogue and digital channels automaticaly, and it was up and running in 3-4 minutes.
Some points worth noting, it comes with the swivel base fitted, and it is quite light for its size, moving it is a one man/woman job.
The picture quality is excellent, the sound is good, and look at all the connections, including HDMI. Terrific value.

...awesome piece of kit from samsung, i have the 42" version, and you cant beat it. Stunning picture quality, unrivalled sound, and more inputs and outputs that a DJ's mixing deck. Got the spare cash? Buy One!! NOW!

The swivel stand is in the pic, thats all u get but at a bargain of a price what does it matter. Gotta say bought this telly in jan and is amazing although i have one dead pixel already, am going to look into whether this is covered in warranty!

Can someone please tell me if this tv comes with a full stand that I can fit my Sky+ box, 360 and dvd recorder on, or do I have to go out and purchase one seperately ??
I know it states "swivel stand" in the product details but I've honestly not got a clue what that is lol
Thanks in advance :)

  Why are people moaning about this TV?!?!?!?!?!

Firstly thanks for everyone that gave good advice on this tv it really did help me put down the dollar for it.

But lets get straight to the point! This tv is amazing. It does take a little bit of calibration out of the box but a simple google search can get you an easy to set up guide off a forum or a website. The size is HUGE! It really is amazing and perfect for my bedroom, it means I can sit on my bed and watch any film without a care in the world or the slightest squint to see anything. I had a 13 inch flatscreen before this (kindly donated by my parents so I can't complain) and now it's like I've gone to TV heaven haha.

The sound I find to be really good, I think the people that are moaning below about rubbish sound clearly need to get some sort of life because if you are that anal about sound you should have a surround sound system anyways. I work with bands (filming them and recording audio) so I'm not an audio novice, I know what's good and what isn't, and this tv really isn't ANYTHING to worry about so don't worry.

The picture quality is great on dvd's however if you are watching something like The A-team or something from around the 80's era TURN OFF THE MOTION SETTING on the tv because it actually does make you feel slightly sick. It's all to do with frame rates. It makes the footage look like its going faster, yet keeping up with the audio, its surreal. It also makes some shots look like they were filmed now instead of back in the good ol' 80's which is kinda cool but off putting. As soon as I switched that off I was beyond happy.

The look of the tv is amazing, sleek black with a lovely design. The stand is sturdy and firm. Not only that but you can turn the tv to an angle which is amazing for me because I can link my mac book to the tv now and preview any music videos I make on it. If I didn't have the swivel option then it would be awkward but its clear samsung have thought this out well!

The delay between channels is a problem for some people. C'mon people, if that is something to moan about you need to get a grip! Go watch 'into the wild' on dvd and feel ashamed at how pety your life is. Just to clarify..... the delay isn't huge!

In short (sorry I'm rambling) GET THIS TV, DON'T WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT, BUY IT AND START LOVING IT. I'm going to play my xbox 360 on it later but I have high expectations for that! I will come back and report on it as I know gaming is important.

Thank you play.com, you are without a doubt my favourite and most trusted site!
