  Great TV shame about the delivery

| | See all gitto1's reviews (1)

First of all let me tell you this is an excellent tv, it really looks the part and is HUGE, much bigger than I expected.
Also it was a lot cheaper than on the high street.
There are so many settings it will take you a good day or so to get it set up the way you want it, the factory settings in my opinion are way too bright, it actually made my eyes hurt to look at it.
My xbox 360 looks so good through it, i no longer have to sit inches away from the screen to play it.
One thing that i find annoying is when you change channels it dosnt display a quick now and next like every other freeview box, or if it does Ive not worked out how to do it yet.
Now onto delivery, it says on the description they can deliver within 24hours, but allow up to 3 days, I ordered on a Tuesday and didnt receive it until the following Monday, ok Barclays fraud protection did decline my card because it looked like "unusual spending"(barclays fraud protection also ruined my holiday because of "unusual spending", but thats a different story),but that is not play.coms fault I blame (we dont work weekends) parcelfarce, sorry i mean parcelforce, who when it did arrive i noticed the tv was actually upside down in the van!!
So to sum up, if you want a really nice flatscreen get this one, just hope play.com start using a new courier service when you order.

  Great TV with great features

| | See all eugenedall's reviews (1)

Ive had this tv for a week, so far very impressed.

its Very big and looks awsome!
Picture quality Looks amazing when connected to a PC, looks like a 37 inch monitor!

Watch for the setting in video options for movie mode, it makes the camera appear different and took me a while to discover.
Dont like that you cant see whats on freeview while browsing the channels kinda a bit stupid to leave this out, its also slow browsing channels.

  Excellent value for money with a small reservation

| | See all SerialKiller's reviews (1)

Firstly, the tv arrived within 3 working days which was an excellent start. The tv when setting it up for the first time was very user friendly with the exception of AV 1 and 2 are called ext1 and 2 which is slightly confusing but no worry atall. I am very pleased with the tv but have a small reservation in relation to picture quality when the camera moves and an object on the screen also moves at the same time the tv does struggle to keep up on scrolling, the object or person has an ora around it as the tv has difficulty with 2 or more things moving in different directions at once. Apart from that its a wonderful tv and a very sleek and modern design making it excellent value for money - 4 out of 5

Firstly, two days for delivery! Spot on! Together with the half price stand I purchased along with this tv (which only took 3 working days, even though it was out of stock when I bought it), I could not ask for better service.

This tv looks great. Very stylish, and ultra sexy looking. It only took about 4-5 minutes to set this baby up, which was ever so straight-forward. I was going to go for the 42" version, but this thing is big enough, and a lot bigger than I expected. I would not have benefitted from a larger one, given the size of my bedroom.

I did have a few problems with picture quality at first, but this was soon resolved with the addition of HD leads (hehe, silly me). The picture is only as good as the signal you put into it. Using my upscaling Samsung DVD player, using a regular scart lead, the picture came out grainy and had severe ghosting. But, now with the HD cable (and not even an expensive one), the picture perfectly fine.

Gaming on this tv is awesome. Have my PS3 and Xbox 360 hooked up to this baby, and all I can say is QUALITY.

Overall, this is a great lcd tv, and well worth the Play.com price. You try buying this in the high street, it'll set you back at least £100+ more. If you are having any doubts buying this tv, don't! Just buy it, you won't be disappointed.

i bought this TV 1 week ago and i must say, it has not dissapointed me yet! its great for games because it has game mode whic levels out the blur and alters the colours for a true gaming experience. also it looks great in my room! also has PIP function which it doesnt state on the website so i can play on my PS3 and watch football at the same time. What more could you want? and as for the price. givaway!!!!

  A great value purchase

| | See all Laceyite's reviews (1)

This is our 1st lcd tv and we are really very pleased with the look, quality and price - it does everything we need and more. Did our research into LCD TV'S and this was the best price for this model - very easy to set up(even for a tecnology novice like me) as everything is just a touch on the remote.
Well done PLAY.COM keep the bargains coming.

  amazing TV

| | See all JGathercole's reviews (6)

This TV did not dissapoint me after installing it. The image whilst viewing freeview was great and this can also be said for both gaming and movie purposes. setup was relatively easy just make sure you refer to the instructions throughout all steps.

the surround is very slick and modern and would certainly improve the look of a room. i have seen some very bulky and ugly surrounds but the samsung surround certainly isnt!

i cannot currently comment on the HD side of things but i think it will comfortably produce an even more perfect picture. i will be purchasing a PS3 so my pro evo experience should be great.

There is no decrease in quality with the decreased price. I have searched around and some 32" Tvs exceed even this price. The sound is very clear and does its job.

It has a very professional feel and it would not surprise me to see it at £900 in shops. delivery was also very efficient. the only small concern is that its a bit slow when changing the channel on freeview.

for the person who asked about the plug, it is a 3 pin one. :)

  Wow - This TV is money well spent !

Recently I had bought a 37" LCD TV and was very disappointed with picture blur etc. so returned it. I bought this one from Play after reading the reviews. They are all spot on. Its Fantastic. Picture quality looks High Def just on my normal Sky+ Box. Football looks sharp and smooth. Great styling too. Even my "Do we really need it" wife is well pleased !
