  The best for the price

| | See all Gr1nchy's reviews (2)

After a lot of looking around we decided on this TV. Samsung TV's seem to have some great reviews out there. It is by far the best TV for the price, It loks great on the wall, it has all the features you could want from a new TV and it's plenty big enough for any front room.
Only downside I have noticed so far is changing channels is slow, I think it might be dead batteries in remote, but they were new with the TV. Haven't tried changing batteries, but nobody else seems to have this problem so it must be that. Doesn't have great sound, but I dont think any LCD's do. Will be plugging it in to amp anyway.
Would recommend....dont buy a 32".....not when you can get this at a great price.
P.S. At the moment you wont find this TV much cheaper than this, I have searched!!

This TV is the one of the best looking TV's that I've ever had. They styling is amazing and it really makes the room look better. Picture quality is amazing when using HD and there are enough inputs on the TV to have pretty much whatever you want connected to the back. The response of the remote is a little slow with the built in freeview and turning on the TV - but aside from that I have no complaints with this purchase.
The remote that comes with the TV also controls a load of other hardware including my Sony DVD player which is a bonus as I hate having loads of remotes!

All in all and quality TV that I'm very happy with.

  Very nice indeed!

I ordered this lcd on the saturday it came wednesday so 3 working days which was great! I did not realise how big this really was!! My brother has a 32" and i thought it was 42" so i was chuffed to see it was huge! (my 1st lcd tv ever) :)
I have to say playing my 360 through this is very sweet, i thought with a bigger screen it would not be so good.. it is its perfect.
Oh, i went to currys before i ordered this they were trying to sell me a 32" samsung same as this one but an older version for £580 so im so so glad i waited.
Overall im a very happy chappy! A must buy for everyone!

  a good quality lcd tele with a good spec for the price

| | See all wembley2007's reviews (1)

didn't spend a lot of time looking but the spec included in this tele is very good. very easy to set up virtually just push auto then every thing is done for you and i mean everything. picture good with a lot of scope for altering picture if you want too. delivery from play was 5 working days from order and was by parcelforce so when were out it was left witn neighbour so didn't have to wait in another day

  nice lookin lcd dissapointing dark pictures

| | See all quinton's reviews (1)

was looking forward to recieving my lcd,first impression was good.good bright colours but it lets itself down with how it deals with dark pictures.but all in all not bad value i guess

  Go buy it...NOW!!!

Like everyone on here i did my research into various LCD's, tried different websites and looked in loads of shops...but PLAY.COM did it for me!!! How they have managed to do this amazing TV for such a cheap price, with FREE delivery, is so good!!!
I got the upscaled DVD with the TV and have to admit iam gonna have to now get the speaker system for it cause the whole set up is just too good to be true!
The TV and DVD are sat on a perfect, medium sized, shiny black and silver glass tv table thing (85 quid from Comet) and it all looks brilliant as you walk into my front room. Only thing is, and my misses pointed this out so hats off to her, the white Xbox 360 looks out of place with all the new shiny blackness, so she is now getting me the Xbox 360 Elite for Xmas to complete it all!! What a woman!
Seriously though this TV is an absolute steal for the price and you will love it. It weighs next to nothing so can be assembled out of the box by just you (like i did), connecting it all up and getting it running with a perfect picture takes about 10 mins in total and is dead straight forward. The DVD player is connected by HDMI lead to the rear and my Xbox will be connected hopefully tomoz by the HD AV lead.
Delivery time was...ordered both TV and DVD on Friday evening, DVD came Tuesday and TV came Wednesday, so no issues there at all!
All in all...very very happy with this massive TV (although its not TOO massive to look silly in your room). PLAY.COM more than likely will now be supplying me the home cinema set and the Xbox 360 Elite just to complete what i have now started. Buy it mate, just buy it now!!!!

Order from Play.com took two days to have television. Lovely looking picture and can play films from my computer on this 37 in screen full marks all round you for play.com and the tv.

  Cracking piece of kit !

Ordered this last Friday evening and it arrived the following Wednesday morning but had to wait until I got home from work to open my extravagent purchase paid for by overtime at work ! This TV as many other reviewers have said dominates the room and looks fantastic as does the picture through the scart lead from the sky digi box. I ordered the samsung upscaling dvd player but cant comment on that as the HDMI lead i ordered still hasnt arrived - dunno why play couldnt have put this in with either the tv or dvd order but there ya go. i did a lot of research over six months before parting with my hard earned and i have to say i am very pleased .

EASY TO UNPACK AND NOT TOO HEAVY
EASY TO SET UP
UP AND RUNNING IN FIVE MINUTES FROM UNPACKING

I havent tried the freeview as dont have an aerial yet so cant comment on that. will hook up my xbox 360 later to see how that looks on this behemoth of a roger melly ! Buy this with confidence and at this price you cannot go wrong. Well done play.com.

  Outstanding value

| | See all Melly4979's reviews (1)

As everyone should, i shopped around for the best deal. And from being quoted £799 on the high street, i found PLAY.COM price to be excellent value for money. The TV was delivered in under a week. The TV itself is awesome, with so many great features, and with the new 1080 rating and 8000:1 contrast ratio, you wont find a better LCD for the same money. Samsung have made the TV 'future proof' by incoroprating the latest technologies. If your still unsure, track it down at your local electrical store, and get a free demo. ;)
